Cinereach Supported Films at Sundance 2012
We’re proud to announce that the lineup of the 2012 Sundance Film Festival will include the world premieres of seven films Cinereach has supported in various capacities.
Taking place January 19th-29th, the fest marks some key milestones for us. We’re thrilled that Beasts of the Southern Wild, the first Cinereach Production to hit Park City, will premiere in competition. We’ll also be celebrating the achievements of the Cinereach Project at Sundance Institute, a fruitful three-year partnership that has provided $1.5 million to complement Sundance Institutes’ invaluable support of fiction and nonfiction works-in-progress.
We look forward to watching these films on the big screen with you, at Sundance and beyond!
