Catch Up on Last Year's Festival With Our Sundance Streaming Guide

Even if your plans for the next two weeks don't involve a trip to Utah, 77 titles from last year's slate are available for you to watch in the privacy of your own home.

'The Kings of Summer'
'The Kings of Summer'

The forecast for opening day of the 2014 Sundance Film Festival calls for high of just two degrees above freezing. While intrepid critics and avid festival attendees brave the elements (partly cloudy on Friday!) and the frigid air, those not making the journey to Park City certainly have options too, especially if they prefer to stay in the comfort of their own home.

As Eric D. Snider observed a few days ago, only one film in Sundance's 2013 U.S. Dramatic competition section has failed to garner a theatrical release. Not only a coup for the festival's programmers, it also means that in the year since, a number of those films continued down the path to on-demand.

We've gathered streaming info for every film that played at the Sundance Film Festival twelve long months ago. (If iTunes and Netflix are your streaming methods of choice, Paula Bernstein put together a more curated list for the Indiewire main site.) For each film, we've included a link to one place where you can find the film (those that won't be released until the coming weeks are labeled as such). Each film is only listed once, but in most cases are available on a variety of platforms. As an additional guide, we also included the link to each title's film page, where you can browse grades and read reviews from the many members of our Criticwire Network.

So if you have some extra time while this year's festival is underway, here are some options to help keep you in the festival spirit. Don't forget to pack extra layers!
