Sundance has added one late-breaking title to its Premieres section of the upcoming 2014 fest: Zach Braff's "Wish I Was Here," which he (controversially) funded partially via Kickstarter. Meanwhile, Kevin Smith's cult classic "Clerks" has been added as a From the Collection midnight screening. The 2014 Festival runs January 16-26 in Park City, Salt Lake City, Ogden and Sundance, Utah.

"Clerks" joins the previously announced From the Collection screening of Steve James' "Hoop Dreams." (James' new doc "Life Itself" on Roger Ebert is premiering at this year's fest.) Both "Clerks" and "Hoop Dreams" premiered at the 1994 festival, which will be the subject of “Class of ’94,” a Power of Story panel at the Park City Egyptian Theatre on Friday, January 24, with director Smith in person.

Meanwhile, check out the 2014 lineups for Sundance's US and World Competition, Premieres, Shorts and Spotlight, Midnight and New Frontiers sections.
