The countdown to the 2015 Sundance Film Festival has officially begun. Today, the festival announced its lineup for films in the U.S. Competition, World Competition, and NEXT categories for next month’s fest, and they’re chock-full of promising titles including the post-apocalyptic Z for Zachariah starring Margot Robbie and Chiwetel Ejiofor, the Jack Black comedy The D Train, and much more. Sundance always highlights the best and brightest in independent filmmaking, often serving as the debut for eventual hits like Whiplash and Fruitvale Station. But the real treat of the festival is the discovery aspect of it all.
