This week we’re offering up a small sample of our great New Frontier section of the Sundance Film Festival. With media installations, multimedia performances, transmedia experiences, panels, films, and more, New Frontier highlights work that celebrates experimentation and the expansion of cinema culture through the convergence of film, art, and new media technology. In the New Frontier shorts, we get into exploring with repurposed nitrate film (Light Is Calling), looking at a health crisis in an unusual and thoughtful way (Last Address), hilarious animation with a political tinge (Because Washington Is Hollywood For Ugly People), and the new world of indie video games (McDonald’s The Game).

Of particular note is the visceral, trippy short that invents a new pair of eyes to look at America’s most colorful playground: site specific_LAS VEGAS 05.
