2019 Sundance Film Festival Predictions: #65. Michael Tyburski – Palimpsest

Based on the 2013 Sundance short that would win a Special Jury Award, Michael Tyburski‘s feature version of the Palimpsest has been receiving a supporting hand via IFP’s Emerging Storyteller’s Program, the Alfred P. Sloan Foundation’s Screenplay Award, was a Rooftop Filmmakers’ Fund Grantee, took part in the Sundance Institute’s Film Music and Sound Design Lab, and finally, was the first ever recipient of Dolby Atmos Fellowship via the San Francisco Film Society. Expect this to be an aural cinematic experience.
