Keeping It Weird: 10 Sundance Movies That Came Out of Austin, Texas

Keeping It Weird: 10 Sundance Movies That Came Out of Austin, Texas

The Sundance Film Festival may call Park City, Utah, its home, but there’s another city that’s always been well-represented at the annual movie-geek get-together: Austin, Texas. Not only is Austin known as a hotbed for up-and-coming filmmakers, but the city’s creative vibe jibes well with Sundance’s commitment to discovering talented artists and giving exposure to offbeat voices. Austin means a DIY aesthetic and a laid-back attitude, plus a love of music, the outdoors, beer, and against-the-grain philosophies. Not coincidentally, you can also find all of those qualities in abundance at the Sundance Film Festival.
