The 30th anniversary of the Sundance Film Festival is finally here and stars from around the world are flocking to Park City, Utah in the hopes of being seen seeing movies. This year the Sundance Institute, an organization "dedicated to the discovery and development of independent artists and audiences," will debut films starring newly discovered artists like Paul Rudd, Philip Seymour Hoffman, John Lithgow, and Michael Fassbender.
More than 120 feature-length films will be shown this year, and while some of the films will deserve praise, a large majority of them will be sad, simple Instagrams—complete with fuzzy filters and woeful glances—brought to life by rich, film school dropouts. It's basically the Oscars for children of Oscar winners.
But if you can't make it to Utah this year, the folks at Tastes Funny created the next best thing: a short trailer entitled "Not Another Sundance Movie," that sums up ten days of film-watching in under three minutes. The short includes a soundtrack from the "Clapping Orphan Choir of Detroit" and critical praise from the "Silver Lake Enquirer" and the "Prospect Park Picayune." It'll easily be of the best things to come out of Sundance this year.
