Sundance Film Festival 2013: Your L.A. Connection

Didn’t score a ticket this year? Don’t fret. We’ve got you covered on some of the buzzworthiest entries.

Right now and for the next week, the capital of Utah is Park City. The 2013 Sundance Film Festival, which kicks off with a gala premiere tonight, takes over the rustic town and popular ski destination for the next 11 days. Don’t have the time or money to fly out there? Here’s a rundown of the shorts, docs, features, and video installations that give Southern California a shoutout… sort of. Some of these are a bit of stretch, and unsurprisingly a number of them are music documentaries. But we love the shag carpeting of famed Van Nuys recording studio Sound City as long as it’s Dave Grohl showing us around.
