Sundance Reveals 2011 Competition List
Paddy Considine made the cut!

The wait is finally over for the Indie filmmakers who have been hanging from tenterhooks wondering if their submission made it into competition at January’s Sundance Film Festival. The annual gathering of directors, actors, producers and critics (and, let’s face it party/distribution purchasing scrum) is one of the best places to launch a movie and this year, the lucky, chosen few include Paddy Considine’s film directing debut Tyrannosaur and Vera Farmiga’s Higher Ground.

Whittled down from more than 10,000 entries to the 115 that made the competition list, the choice is always a tough one to make for those in charge. "The Festival is a challenge to narrowly define. It is all at once exciting, fun, crazy, engaging, visceral, and sometimes even painful. We can explain storylines, we can share what we know of each artist's unique journey, but ultimately what we will experience for 10 days in January is different for each of us,” says Sundance director John Cooper.

Among the entries are Considine and Farmiga’s efforts, alongside Like Crazy, the latest film from Indie favourite Drake Doremus, who last brought the world Douchebag.

Tomorrow will bring another list, the out-of-competition entries, which, according the man himself, and announced by his better half, Jennifer Schwalbach on their new podcast, will include Kevin Smith's Red State. 

We won’t print the competition's entire list here, but you can head on over to the official Sundance site to get a peep at all the competition entries.
