The 2024 Sundance Film Festival Award Winners

As always, the Sundance Film Festival allowed many to discover new filmmakers, performers, and films from well-established artists worldwide, both in-person and online, for their 40th edition. Once again, the cast quality of filmmaking has been entirely on display since the festival began on January 18th. And now, the Competition titles this year have been recognized by the Grand Juries and the audiences of Sundance with their annual awards.
