It Follows

Nate von Zumwalt

Filmmaker Sean Baker has garnered applause and accolades year-round since premiering Tangerine, his “like-nothing-you’ve-ever-seen” film that channels relentless candor and realism in a refreshingly honest portrayal of transgender sex workers in Los Angeles. To kick off awards season, the film and its team received four Film Independent Spirit Awards nominations in an announcement that also saw Sundance favorites The Diary of a Teenage Girl and It Follows make plenty of noise. Below, we take a look at all of the Sundance-supported films and filmmakers nominated for the 31st Film Independent Spirit Awards. Winners will be announced on February 27 in Santa Monica.

Sundance Institute Piloting Direct Individual Support for Mediamakers Through the Sundance Institute | Humanities Sustainability Fellowship

Long before the COVID-19 pandemic upended life in general, and halted production and distribution for many creatives, the nonfiction field was plagued by issues of sustainability. For several years, sustainability has been an urgent and vigorous topic of study, debate, and organizing, as more and more filmmakers find it difficult, if not impossible, to make a living solely on the basis of their creative work.
