2016 Sundance Film Festival Predictions: Bernal/Kashyap/Khan/Silva/Sono/Wasikowska’s Madly

Not your run-of-the-mill future film festival selection, filmmakers Gael García Bernal (Déficit), Anurag Kashyap (Gangs of Wasseypur), Sebastián Silva (Nasty Baby), Shion Sono (Suicide Club), Natasha Khan and actress Mia Wasikowska each supplied a short supply with one overriding thematic that was commissioned by MTV World. While Madly doesn’t “scream” Sundance, we can’t help but think that the curious mix of filmmakers (including Park City habituals Silva and Bernal) adds enough clout to warrant a possible inclusion.

Gist: This is a global anthology film featuring innovative love stories from the some of the world’s most visionary directors.

Production Co./Producers: Eric Mahoney. Executive producer: Nusrat Durrani.

Prediction: World Dramatic Comp.

U.S. Distributor: Rights Available. TBD (domestic). TBD (international)
