Sundance 2023 Watchlist

By: Amanda Guarragi

I am so happy that I’ve been given the opportunity to cover Sundance again. This will be my third year covering the festival and it is virtually once again. Thankfully, Sundance has kept the virtual option and it is something that I am very grateful for. I plan on watching 32 films in the next 10 days, so hopefully, I’ll be able to make it through. This year the festival will run from Thursday, January 19th to Sunday, January 29th. You can follow me on all platforms @amxndareviews for social reactions and reviews.
