The Sundance Institute has announced the 65 films selected to premiere at the 2016 Sundance Film Festival in January 2016. Included in the various casts are stage favorites Michael C. Hall, Tracy Letts, Elisabeth Moss, Daniel Radcliffe, Allison Janney and Tammy Blanchard.

The festival is scheduled to run Jan. 21-31, 2016, in Park City, Salt Lake City, Ogden and Sundance, UT. The event is the centerpiece of the year-round programs and initiatives hosted by the Institute, founded by Robert Redford.

Hedwig's Hall and acclaimed playwright and actor Letts are both featured in Antonio Campos' film "Christine," the real-life-inspired story of a female TV news reporter in 1970's Florida.

Tony nominee Moss is featured in Jason Lew's drama "The Free World," about a man's struggle to keep his newfound freedom following a long stretch in prison for crimes he didn't commit. Fellow nominee and stage and screen star Radcliffe stars in "Swiss Army Man," which follows a lost man's epic journey in the wild.

Janney and Blanchard are both featured in "Tallulah" about a young woman who takes a toddler from a wealthy mother and attempts to pass the baby off as her own. The female-lead cast also features The Wiz Live!'s Uzo Aduba and "Juno" star Ellen Page.

All of the aforementioned films are included in the U.S. "Dramatic Competition," which presents world premieres of narrative feature films. "Their films will soon launch onto the global stage, beginning their journeys through our culture. A new year in independent film will start right here—on the mountain—in January," said Redford in a press statement. For more information on the line-up, visit Sundance.org.
