It's that time of the year again with plenty of movie folk venturing to snowy Utah for the Sundance Film Festival. What type of cinematic treasures will be found at this year's event? Who really knows for sure but Vulture has rounded up over twenty interesting, indie-minded films that will be making their premieres at the first film fest of 2017 which began on January 19th and runs through the 29th. One of these may become a critical and box-office success like "Manchester By The Sea" which received plenty of love at last year's Sundance. Or they could turn out like "The Birth of a Nation" which also received a lot of love at this festival last year but proved to be a disappointment once it reached the general public.

A few I'm curious about include "An Inconvenient Sequel", the sequel to the Oscar-winning global-warming documentary, Luca Guadagnino's ("A Bigger Splash") most definitely controversial "Call Me by Your Name" which involves an affair between a teenage boy and an older man, "Mudbound", Dee Rees' ("Pariah") second feature which involves a racially charged story of families feuding in the post–World War II South and "Nobody Speak: Hulk Hogan, Gawker, and Trials for a Free Press", a doc involving that controversial courtroom drama.
