2019 Sundance Film Festival Predictions: #22. Andrew Ahn – Driveways

After the critically acclaimed Spa Night, (2016 Sundance Film Fest selection) Andrew Ahn moved into the television sphere with a half dozen episodes of This Close, but without fanfare, he switched coasts, teamed with producer heavyweight James Schamus, shot in NYC this past July for his sophomore film Driveways. The filmmaker’s rapport with the fest is great — Spa Night participated in the Sundance Screenwriters Lab, the Film Independent Screenwriting Lab, and the Film Independent Directing Lab and he received a Sundance Institute Cinereach Feature Film Fellow grant. His short Dol (First Birthday) was a  2012 selection.
