Sundance Film Festival Announces 2020 Lineup, Films Featuring Taylor Swift, Angelina Jolie, Benedict Cumberbatch And More

The Sundance Film Festival announced its 2020 lineup on Wednesday, unveiling a jam-packed lineup of 118 films featuring some big stars.

While festival founder Robert Redford announced earlier this year he’d be stepping away from Sundance, he’ll be there in 2020 for the premiere of his upcoming film “Omniboat: A Fast Boat Fantasia”.

One of the most anticipated films to premiere at Sundance is “Taylor Swift: Miss Americana”, a new Netflix documentary that’s described as “a raw and emotionally revealing look at one of the most iconic artists of our time during a transformational period in her life as she learns to embrace her role not only as a songwriter and performer, but as a woman harnessing the full power of her voice.”

In addition, other stars expected to attend include Riley Keough, Lena Waite, Daniel Dae Kim, Steven Yeun, Zazie Beetz, Tony Hale, Meek Mill, Michael Caine, Sienna Miller, Diego Luna, Tessa Thompson, Eva Longoria, Elisabeth Moss, Toni Collette, Damian Lewis, Andy Samberg and  J.K. Simmons.

“Independent artists create and enrich global culture,” said Redford in a statement. “Their art, which we’re proud to present, can entertain — and much more: it can, illuminate, agitate, and empower. This year’s Festival is full of films that showcase myriad ways for stories to drive change, across hearts, minds, and societies.”

“The program this year, my last as director, is a celebration: of art and artists, yes, but also of the community that makes the annual pilgrimage to Park City to see the most exciting new work being made today,” added festival director John Cooper, who will be stepping down after the 2020 edition of the festival. “Watching this group expand and thrive over the years has been exhilarating and wildly rewarding. Our 2020 festival’s lively and visionary crop of artists has a contagious passion, and I can’t wait to watch the world meet their work.”

Next year’s festival will take place from Jan. 23-Feb. 2, and is expected to be attended by more than 120,000 people and 1,300 accredited press.
