2016 Sundance Film Festival Photo Coverage

Written by: FFT Webmaster | February 22nd, 2016

Diversity is The Theme of Sundance 2016!

From the opening day press conference which welcomed journalists from all over the world, Sundance 2016 was all about color and inclusive film-making. Nate Parker,director and screenwriter, re-purposed the title of Griffith’s racist masterpiece with a new “THE BIRTH OF A NATION” from the perspective of African-Americans and won both Audience Award and Grand Jury Prize in dramatic competition. It was perfect timing as a counter-punch to #OscarsSoWhite and sold for a new Sundance record of 17.5 million to Fox Searchlight.
