What's their reasoning behind their top three choices all being movies from 2018? First Reformed even premiered in 2017.

Sorry! A balky computer intervened while I was using an old template. It should make sense now.

Not only does Sundance not select animated features for main competition, they selected just 15 animated shorts for a 74-film short competition program.
 
That's from a total of 10,397 submissions!
 
Hard to think of a film festival that's more disrespectful to the animation world..........
 
 

We've covered them in the past

(https://cartoonbrew.com/festivals/2018-sundance-slamdance-review-animation-infiltrates-festivals-156511.html)

but at this point, believe the organization has a predatory approach to animation filmmakers

(using us to generate revenue but not giving anything back in return) and we will stop coverage.

Its thoughtless take on a female reporter aside, #RichardJewell is #ClintEastwood's best film in years. Energetic, well-staged, surefooted drama and crafty humor. Behaviorally credible, moving work from #PaulWalterHauser. #SamRockwell is endlessly entertaining w/o seeming fake.

#KristenStewart does quite a credible job of portraying radical, sometimes blundering and rightly paranoid actress Jean #Seberg. History is messed with, but still interestingly depicted. #ClintEastwood, who ironically also has an anti-FBI film opening today, isn't mentioned.

#AdamSandler UncutGems_A24_2019.png gives the performance of his life - and I mean the good performance - as the manic gambling jewel dealer at the swirling center of the #SafdieBrothers' UncutGems_A24_2019.png#UncutGemsUncutGems_A24_2019.png. Newcomer #JuliaFox also impresses as his unpredictable mistress. A very rough diamond, this.
