Awards season is in full swing and many of this year’s Oscar contenders, such as“Get Out” and “Call Me by Your Name,” were films that showed last year at Sundance.
Needless to say, people who are in Park City right now are keeping an eye out for the next big hit.
But the 2018 Sundance festival didn't only revolve around film. With the recent spread of news exposing Hollywood’s rampant sexual harassment issues, the #MeToo spirit was strong among festival-goers and filmmakers. Conversations surrounding gender and equality were more prevalent than in previous years, popping up in both panels and film selections.
We check in with KPCC FilmWeek critic Justin Chang and John Horn, host of KPCC’s “The Frame,” to get the latest on Sundance.
