Among the key attendees at the Sundance Film Festival each year are industry insiders, buyer, sellers, festival programmers, as well as journalists and critics. This year we decided to poll a group of 50 writers and reviewers about their favorite movies of the festival and we published the results last night.
As for my favorites, I don't mind revealing my personal ballot (I watched about 20 features and have a lot more that I will see)...
Best Narrative Feature: "A Guide to Recognizing Your Saints" Best Doc Feature: "American Blackout" Best Director: Dito Montiel, "A Guide To Recognizing Your Saints" Best Actor: Ryan Gosling, "Half Nelson" Best Actress: Shareeka Epps, "Half Nelson" Best Screenplay: "Wristcutters: A Love Story" Running a close second in just about every category was "Quinceanera", which was a supremely deserving audience and jury prize winner (and I also loved "The Science of Sleep"). Also worth singling out is the exceptional "Iraq In Fragments".
