Sundance Film Festival 2018 Timeline Mural

[UPDATED 1/31/18]

Another year, another Sundance with SAGindie: Movies, Parties, Actors Only Brunches and Filmmaker Luncheons. One change for the 2018 Sundance Film Festival included a new Indie Episodic section and a brand-new screening venue (The Ray Theater, with its Sundance history wall mural pictured above).

This year’s fest may have resulted in fewer huge-money purchases and bidding wars, but that doesn’t mean the SAGindie staff didn’t see some memorable movies. See our staff highlights, plus all of this year’s award-winners, below!
