What are the best movies of the 2020 Sundance Film Festival?

Every year the Sundance Film Festival holds a ceremony. Groups of celebrities, journalists, filmmakers, and publicists all gathered under one roof. This year it was held in the snowy mountain climes of Park City, Utah. The ceremony is meant to celebrate the latest works from independent cinema's boldest and brightest voices. Not only that, it offers a sneak peek at the movie year head as far as indie-cinema is concerned. For this Sundance Film Festival 2020, there were a lot of fresh faces and returning storytellers. Some have made spectacular debuts and record-breaking distribution deals. Lee Isaac Chung's "Minari" even scored a rare double victory in the awards. Apart from the slate of narrative contributions, Sundance is still renowned as one of the premier spots to discover new documentaries. This year's Sundance Film Festival movies hold a lot of gems. A good example is A24's "Zola" which sparked a viral twitter thread about a wild encounter between two strippers. The director of the 2018 Sundance film "Madeline's Madeline" also marks her return with a biopic about horror author Shirley Jackson. Despite its fair share of big deals, this year's Festival was relatively a low-key affair compared to previous years. Regardless, that did not take away from the excellence of the featured slate. There were so many strong films this year that it seemed almost impossible for one or two titles to break out. With that being said, that's a great testament to the Sundance Film Festival winners for the year 2020. Let's take a look at some of the best movies from the 2020 Sundance Film Festival.
