Douze films européens en compétition à Sundance 2021
Hive de Blerta Basholli

Cet article est disponible en anglais.

Six European co-productions are playing in the World Cinema Dramatic Competition at the 2021 Sundance Film Festival, while a further six European co-productions will appear in the World Cinema Documentary Competition, as 2021 begins with the coronavirus mutating and spreading quickly throughout the world.

Consequently, the Sundance Film Festival will take place digitally via a feature-rich, Sundance-built online platform and in person at satellite screens across the United States (public health conditions permitting) from 28 January-3 February 2021. Additionally, festival attendees will be able to gather in virtual waiting rooms, participate in live Q&As and congregate in new, inspired online environments to interact in a range of ways both new and familiar.
