Sundance 2020: 10 Films Everyone Is Buzzing About

It's not all Oscar bait.

Well Go USA

Even though we're currently celebrating the best in 2019 film with the ongoing awards season, it's also the perfect time to look ahead at what's coming next, and that's basically what the Sundance Film Festival is all about.

Each year, a diverse crop of filmmakers bring their latest efforts to one of the most prominent stages on the cinematic calendar, and while a lot of these movies do tend to have their moment and then fade away, some stick around for a good long while, becoming bit hits with film fans and even being involved in the next awards race.

Some of the biggest Sundance hits of the last few years include Call Me By Your Name, Hereditary, Velvet Buzzsaw and Manchester By The Sea, and with the 2020 festival having recently come to a close, the world has definitely just been introduced to some movies that could join those esteemed ranks.

This year we've seen comedies, thrillers, chilling documentaries, heartwarming dramas, big-name actors like Andy Samberg, Sean Bean and Elisabeth Moss, and even a sprinkling of horror. It's a truly varied and exciting selection, and you'll probably be seeing a lot more of these ten movies over the next several months.
