Sundance Kids
by Karen Pecota

A new section added to the Sundance 2014 Film Festival for independent film's youngest fans is called Sundance Kids. The two films showcased were in collaboration with Utah's premiere film festival for children and youth known as Tumbleweeds.

Sundance Kids presented two features for the film festival screening program:
A feature length animation Ernest and Celestine. Recommended for ages five and older. The narrative tells of how two unlikely animals form a special friendship while dealing with attitudes of prejudice and complications of varied lifestyles.

A feature length mystery adventure ZIP & ZAP and The Marble Gang. Recommended for ages nine and older. The storyline follows a typical children's mystery adventure interesting enough for adults. Zip and Zap are sent to a reform school to help redirect their obnoxious and demeaning behavior toward others. Through a series of events the two discover a hidden secret logged in the school catacombs. To bring the secret to light the schoolmates need assistance from those to be trusted. Their bond of trust is the success of their discovery and an adventure of a lifetime.
