Hey, not everyone can afford to go to Sundance just for fun. If you don't live in or near Park City, it's pretty darn spendy to travel to the fest. Or maybe you've gone to Sundance in the past, and you'd just like to relive the memories. Sundance Channel is bringing you 31 days of Sundance
, starting right ... about ... well, two days ago. But there's still plenty of good watching left. Every night at 9PM, the Sundance Channel will screen a film from past fests, and the lineup is pretty darn impressive, including some of my own fave films such as Adam's Apples
by Anders Thomas Jensen (that one's tonight, so set your TIVO or DVR if you'll be out), and ... oh! Kelly Reichardt's Old Joy
is on Sunday! Next Wednesday is So Yong Kim's In Between Days
, and Ramin Bahrani's Man Push Cart
airs January 16.
Thursday, January 17 you'll have a chance to catch the Duplass brothers' hilarious-yet-poignant Puffy Chair
(their new film, Baghead
, will be reviewed as part of our Sundance coverage this year), and Saturday, January 20 has Half Nelson
(directed by Ryan Fleck, starring Ryan Gosling in a breakout role as a crackhead middle school teacher). There are some really good films showing all month long. Seriously, especially if you live in a city without a lot of access to indie film, this is your chance to catch up on a TON of great indie fare, for free.
The films above are just a smattering of the awesome lineup. You'll find the full schedule over at the Sundance Channel website
, so make sure to mark your calendar for the ones you don't want to miss.
