Utah Community Events

It's one of the quickest turnarounds in recent memory for a Grand Jury Prize Winner, but Macon Blair's aptly titled I Don't Feel at Home in this World Anymore comes to Netflix in February. Led by a brilliantly bizarre turn from Melanie Lynskey, Blair's idiosyncratic tale of a woman's search for a sense of purpose after her home is burglarized is full of baffling reroutes – as well as being a true sign of the times, as is its immediate post-Festival digital release.
Also opening this month, Jena Malone and Riley Keough navigate a muddled and fluctuating intimacy in Lovesong, director So Yong Kim's wistful portrait of relationships, neglect, and the fluidity of love. After premiering in U.S. Competition at the 2016 Festival and screening at NEXT FEST in Los Angeles, Lovesong opens in theaters this February alongside other 2016 Festival standouts, including Dark Night and As You Are. Check out all of the Sundance-supported films hitting theaters and digital platforms this month.
