Sundance unveils doc premiere section

Fest will announce 2011 lineup on Dec. 1-2

The Sundance Film Festival is launching a documentary premiere section at the upcoming event, which runs for 11 days starting on Jan. 20.

Sundance Institute founder Robert Redford made the announcement Tuesday on the Sundance website, asserting that the section would represent “a nod to the continued evolution of nonfiction film.”

Redford gave no other details. Sundance will unveil its lineup on Dec. 1 and 2.

Several documentaries generated interest at Sundance this year, including “The Tillman Story,” “Catfish” and “Waiting for Superman,” which resulted in the first deal of the festival. Paramount and Participant Media inked the deal in the days leading up to the fest, but waited to announce the news until they arrived in Park City.

This year’s festival was attended by more than 40,000 visitors.
