Posted on Wednesday, November 28th, 2018 by Ben Pearson As we recover from Thanksgiving and prepare to head into the holiday season, the 2019 Sundance Film Festival is just a few weeks away. /Film will be on the ground in Park City, Utah in January to bring you coverage of all of the biggest and best in the world of independent film, including movies from filmmakers like , and many more. The festival runs from January 24– February 3, 2019. Below, read about the 10 notable movies we’re looking forward to, and see the full list of what’ll be playing at the festival. One of the exciting things about Sundance is that most of these films are brand new: no one has seen them yet, so we have no idea what to expect.

"The Hurt Locker" was supposed to alleviate the pain. When the film was named best picture at the 2010 Academy Awards and Kathryn Bigelow became the first woman to triumph as best director, Hollywood finally appeared ready to integrate the boys' club. It didn't happen. Since that milestone, not a single woman has been Oscar-nominated for best director. Of the 250 highest-grossing movies of 2014, just 17 were helmed by females. This year doesn't look any more promising. Only Elizabeth Banks' "Pitch Perfect 2" and Sam Taylor-Johnson's "Fifty Shades of Grey" have cracked the top 25 — and don't expect either to generate many red-carpet invites during awards season. "After 'Hurt Locker' did women become complacent?" said actress and filmmaker Illeana Douglas, who explores that topic and more in "Trailblazing Women," TCM's monthlong tribute to female directors. "We may have thought we arrived and then blinked. Now we're back to being marginalized." It isn't the first time a … [Read more...] about Illeana Douglas helps shine spotlight on female directors in TCM film festival
