A group of actors, industry veterans, and filmmakers will decide who wins big at Sundance this year.
Today, the Sundance Institute announced the festival’s 2017 jury members, a diverse group that includes actors, such as Game of Thrones‘ Peter Dinklage, who also stars in Sundance 2017 premiere Rememory; industry heavyweights, such as Jacqueline Lyanga, the director of AFI Fest; and filmmakers, such as Julie Goldman, who produced last year’s Sundance award-winning Weiner.
In previous years, Lena Dunham, Jon Hamm, Shane Carruth, Cary Fukunaga, Jonathan Nolan, and Taika Waititi served on Sundance juries.
Each jury will award one film the top prize, announced at the closing night ceremony hosted by Jessica Williams. Audiences decide which five films will receive an Audience Award.
