As it's done in recent years, the Sundance Institute will screen a selection of films from the 2013 Sundance Film Festival, in 10 cities across the country on January 31, as part of the Sundance Film Festival USA initiative.

This gives audiences in those 10 cities - folks who likely won't be in attendance at the festival to see the films there - the opportunity to do just that.

And in each city, filmmakers of the selected films will be present to introduce their films, as well as participate in a Q&A with the audience.

Of note, Andrew Dosunmu's Mother of George (Ma'George) will screen in Nashville, TN (not New York as you might expect) at the Belcourt Theatre (www.belcourt.org).

The rest of the story via press release below:

Sundance Institute Announces 10 Films and Art House Theaters for Sundance Film Festival USA on Jan. 31

Ann Arbor, MI | Boston, MA | Brooklyn, NY | Chicago, IL | Houston, TX | Los Angeles, CA | Nashville, TN | Orlando, FL | San Francisco, CA | Tucson, AZ

Park City, UT — Sundance Institute announced today the films from the 2013 Sundance Film Festival that will screen in 10 independent theaters in cities across the country on January 31 as part of the Sundance Film Festival USA initiative. Audiences in 10 cities will have the opportunity to share in the excitement of discovery of a film fresh from the 2013 Festival as well as hear directly from the filmmaker about their work.

Each of 10 filmmakers will travel to one of the following cities: Ann Arbor, MI; Boston, MA; Brooklyn, NY; Chicago, IL; Houston, TX; Los Angeles, CA; Nashville, TN; Orlando, FL; San Francisco, CA; and Tucson, AZ. Their travel is courtesy of Official Airline Sponsor Southwest Airlines. In each city, the filmmaker will introduce and screen their film and participate in a Q&A with the audience.

Robert Redford, President and Founder of Sundance Institute, said, “Sundance Film Festival USA celebrates the theaters and audiences that are an integral part of supporting and encouraging the work of independent filmmakers. By extending the Festival to these 10 cities, we will create a larger shared experience and dialogue around the issues of our time, as explored in these films.”

John Cooper, Director of the Sundance Film Festival, said, “The independent film community is thriving, and we attribute that in part to the work of independent theaters across the country that are engaging film-loving audiences throughout the year. Their support encourages artists to continue pushing boundaries, knowing that audiences are open and excited to connect with their new work.”

Tickets for each screening will be available through the theatre’s box office.
