Sundance Invites Three Super Deluxe Projects
To Premiere at the 2017 Film Festival

The Sundance Film Festival has accepted three Super Deluxe projects in its first year submitting to the festival. Turner's emerging entertainment studio will bring a distinct lineup that matches the unpredictable spirit of the 12-month-old start-up: The Chances (Shoshannah Stern and Josh Feldman), Bayard & Me (Matt Wolf) and Deer Squad (Pipus Larsen, Kenneth Gug and Scott J. Ross). The two short docs, Bayard & Me and Deer Squad, will run on Super Deluxe’s branded social media channels, while The Chances will be developed for television. Complete details on all three projects is included below.

The Sundance Film Festival takes place January 19-29 with screenings in Park City, Salt Lake City and at Sundance Mountain Resort, Utah. Notable alumni who started their careers with short films here are Wes Anderson, Louis C.K., Todd Haynes, Spike Jonze,  Paul Thomas Anderson, David O. Russell, Trey Parker and Matt Stone, Tamara Jenkins, Jason Reitman,  Adam Shankman and David Wain. The Sundance Film Festival has also introduced global audiences to some of the most groundbreaking films of the past three decades, including Boyhood, Beasts of the Southern Wild, Fruitvale Station, Whiplash, The End of the Tour, Little Miss Sunshine, Reservoir Dogs, An Inconvenient Truth, Precious and Napoleon Dynamite.
