Sundance Film Festival 2020

February 5, 2020

Wavelength had the pleasure to return to Park City, Utah for the 2020 Sundance Film Festival. We celebrated the world premieres of four feature-length films: Farewell Amor by writer-director Ekwa Msangi, Feels Good Man by director Arthur Jones, Softie by writer-director Sam Soko and Spaceship Earth by director Matt Wolf.

We couldn’t be happier to share the accolades these films received. Farewell Amor’s producer Huriyyah Muhammad Wright earned the Sundance Institute and Amazon Studios Producer’s Award; Feels Good Man director Arthur Jones earned the Special Jury Award for Emerging Filmmaker in the category of U.S. Documentary; Sofite received the World Cinema Documentary Special Jury Award for Editing; and in light of the film’s success, Spaceship Earth was recently acquired by Neon.

More exciting news: Wavelength has chosen our first WAVE Grant recipient! Eliana Pipes’ has been selected along with her animated narrative short, NAILS, which follows Catalina, a wide-eyed 15-year-old Latina taking dance classes to prepare for her Quinceañera. When Catalina develops an unexpected crush on a girl in her class, her fingernails suddenly begin to grow at a superhuman pace – a blessing for a Latina, but a curse for a lesbian. We can’t wait to see it!
