Pass The Popcorn: The 14 Most Exciting Films To Come Out of Sundance 2014

Okayplayer's 14 Most exciting Films At Sundance 2014: Through A Lens Darkly

Okayplayer's 14 Most exciting Movies to come out of Sundance 2014

Last week Okayplayer and Okayafrica took to the freezing streets of Park City, Utah to participate in the annual Sundance Film Festival, where the film we produced, the Fela Kuti documentary Finding Fela premiered. The doc, a rich and nuanced portrait of Fela Kuti, filled with some incredible vintage documentary footage, screened to fantastic reviews (see coverage onĀ Billboard and Entertainment Weekly for more, see Okayafrica’s recap here–or just click through this list to get our recap). Our days were ram packed with Fela events and press junkets, but in between we managed to catch a grip of screenings, party at the “Black House,” (the hang-out/hub for African American filmmakers) and talk to some of the most promising new filmmakers out there. What follows is a list of what we judged to be the most exciting films that screened at this year’s festival, relevant to both Okayplayer and Okayafrica. Some we saw with our own eyeballs, some are included of the strength of word of mouth buzz or co-signatures from homies and colleagues–and a few we are in the process of begging for screeners for after hearing rave reviews. Whatever the source, the proof is in the popcorn. Pass it over this way, put on your 3-Ds and run projector with us on the 14 most exciting new films out of Sundance. – gingerlynn & vanessawithoutborders
