Collect Them All!: Our 2015 Sundance “Trading Cards” Series Checklist

It’s Day 1 at the 2015 Sundance Film Festival, which can only mean that it’s time for IONCINEMA.com to break out our 2015 Sundance Trading Cards Series. Last year we found out that these American independent film people profiles were a hit, so this year we return again, with more profiles, but we’ve sharpen our focus on the folks behind the films selected in the NEXT and U.S Dramatic Comp section.

The class of ’15 naturally includes the filmmakers and players in front of the camera, but also the creative folk behind it. Like the traditional sports cards, the back of the card gives you “stats” (here we focus on the filmography/other creative endeavors) and since we are still in the midst of a new year, we like to look back at each individual’s 2014 discoveries (from old film/book/music classics, sculptors, latest video games, television series, locations on the map, current events, phone apps – you name it. We still have some other Honus Wagners coming in, but for the most part, this list of 55 47 gives you an overview of those participating at this year’s fest. Enjoy the series, we’ll be releasing them to you daily, and collect the entire set!
