This year's Sundance Film Festival promises to set the agenda for independent cinema and to start the Oscars buzz a month before this year's statuettes are awarded.Sundance also features documentaries and, for the first time, is shining a light on a specific theme – climate change – with 14 films and virtual reality projects in its "The New Climate" slate.Sundance received 13,782 submissions including 4,068 feature-length films – more than half from overseas – and 8,985 shorts.In past years, films that have premiered at the festival – there are more than 100 this year – have earned rave reviews, and many directors, including Quentin Tarantino and Steven Soderbergh, built their reputations there.Last year, the crop of movies shown at the festival yielded "Manchester by the Sea," the film which earned Affleck his Globe and which is expected to pick up several Oscar nominations.
