Previously held exclusively in person with an attendance of mostly film industry insiders, the Sundance Film Festival is opening its screenings to the public through online streaming this year. Founded in 1978, the event is one of the world’s most prestigious celebrations of independent film. It includes 10 days of screenings, awards, and competitions, and ample opportunities for newly released independent films to secure distribution deals. The festival has been known to launch the careers of prominent directors and actors, with renowned films like “American Psycho,” “The Blair Witch Project,” “Little Miss Sunshine,” and “Reservoir Dogs” finding their beginnings there.

The opportunity to be the “first viewer” of these kinds of films is something cord-cutters don’t want to miss out on. Here’s all the information you need to stream some of the best films of the 2024 Sundance Film Festival from the comfort of your home.

Ninety-three-year-old Los Angeles granny, Thelma Post (June Squibb), becomes an unlikely action hero after a phone scammer poses as her grandson, convincing her to transfer a big chunk of her life savings. Realizing she’s been had, Thelma mounts her motor-scooter and takes off on a treacherous quest across the city to confront the scammer and get back what’s hers. Meeting a colorful cast along the way, Thelma gets closer to the real person behind the scam who has targeted elderly victims for years. While she may have some mobility barriers, she comes to realize that her age, including all her life experience and street smarts, is actually an advantage when you’re out to con some cons.

With 94-year-old Squibb performing most of her own stunts and a supporting cast that includes recently passed Richard Roundtree (best known as Shaft) and Fred Hechinger from “The White Lotus,” “Thelma” is a hilarious and empowering testament to living life to the fullest at any age.

‘Krazy House’

Screening during the Midnight program of the festival — a notorious category known for reaction-provoking future cult films, including over-the-top comedies, gory horror, surreal drama, and explicit animation — “Krazy House” follows the absurd antics of a ‘90s sitcom family. Bernie (Nick Frost) and his family’s lives are turned upside down when a group of Russian construction workers arrives to renovate their home. Little do they know, the seemingly innocent workers are wanted criminals on the run. Getting suspicious of the hushed conversations, weapons, and hidden stashes of cash, Bernie decides to take matters into his own hands to protect his family. In true sitcom fashion, things get a little out of hand.

The film marks the English-language debut of Dutch filmmakers Steffen Haars and Flip van der Kuil, featuring a noteworthy American and British cast that includes Alicia Silverstone and Kevin Connolly.

In the early 2000s, 15-year-old Doris (Nico Parker) and her family relocate to the small Florida town of Suncoast to seek specialized care for her brother who suffers from a rare condition. Caught between her brother’s illness and all of the drama and challenges of adolescence, she finds herself drawn to a charismatic activist protesting a medical case that has divided the nation. Joining him in the world of activism, they work tirelessly to get their message out about the need for ethical medical practices and informed consent, forcing Lily to confront her fears of challenging the status quo. Their efforts finally make an impact, sparking legal action in the case and helping them realize that no voice is too small to make a difference.

Starring critically acclaimed actors Woody Harrelson and Laura Linney, filmmaker Laura Chinn’s semi-autobiographical coming-of-age story is a snapshot of friendship, the pursuit of justice, self-discovery, and the idealism and strength that comes along with youth.

‘Exhibiting Forgiveness’

Up-and-coming Black artist Tarrell (André Holland of “Selma” and “Moonlight” fame) is on the cusp of achieving his long-awaited dream of a solo exhibition at a prestigious gallery in New York City. Just when everything seems perfect, a disruption arrives in the form of Marcus’ estranged father (G.L. McQueary), a recovering addict desperate to rekindle their relationship. Still bearing the scars left by his father’s actions, Tarrell comes face to face with the lingering resentment and past demons still reflected in his art. As his exhibition draws closer, he begins to realize that he won’t be able to fully move forward until he lets the past go. Allowing his art to say all the things he was never able to, he exposes his vulnerabilities to the world and his father, who begins to realize exactly what he has done.

Emotional, artful, and relatable, “Exhibiting Forgiveness” will be screening as part of the U.S. Dramatic Competition.

‘Love Me’

In a post-apocalyptic world where humanity has vanished, a lonely buoy encounters a satellite floating aimlessly in space. Despite being worlds apart, they manage to forge a connection through a network of old satellites that still function. Virtual conversations become a love affair as the buoy dreams of leaving her tether on the ocean floor and the satellite longs for physical connection in the vast expanse. When a solar storm threatens to disrupt the network of satellites and sever their connection forever, the pair devise a plan to physically meet using the solar storm’s energy to propel the buoy into orbit.

The unlikely but universal lovers are inhabited in various forms by Kristen Stewart and Steven Yeun (“Nope” and “Okja”) in this unconventionally beautiful love story that has already received Sundance’s Alfred P. Sloan Feature Film Prize.
