On Wednesday, the lineup of films that will be shown at the 2023 Sundance Film Festival in January was made public by the Sundance Institute.

A prison thriller starring Anne Hathaway called “Eileen” and two documentaries about the lives and careers of Michael J. Fox and Brooke Shields are among the notable selections.

The projects selected from almost 16,000 entries incorporate 101 feature-length films representing 23 nations. 28% of the program’s feature film directors are new to feature filmmaking.

Among those whose directorial debuts made the Sundance lineup is actor Randall Park. His film “Shortcomings,” with Justin H. Min, Sherry Cola, and Ally Maki as the main characters, will make its debut in the American dramatic competition. Oscar contenders “CODA” and “Minari” are two films that have premiered in this category in recent years.

“Maintaining an essential place for artists to express themselves, take risks, and for visionary stories to endure and entertain is distinctly Sundance,” Robert Redford, Sundance Institute Founder and President, said in a statement. “The Festival continues to foster these values and connections through independent storytelling. We are honored to share the compelling selection of work at this year’s Festival from distinct perspectives and unique voices.”

From January 19 to 29, the festival will take place in Park City, Utah, and Salt Lake City. Additionally, a few films will be available online.
