Editor, U.S.; Los Angeles, California (@filmbenjamin)
Tomorrow, the Slamdance Film Festival returns to the Treasure Mountain Inn in Park City, Utah for its 22nd edition. Chock full of indie gumption and DIY brass from across the globe, the "For filmmakers by filmmakers" festival features a film lineup this year that looks to be as eclectic as ever.

In anticipation of what's in store, Jeremy O. Harris and I give you our top titles you won't want to miss during your stay in Park City. And for those not in attendance: keep your eyes peeled for these gems as 2016 marches on.

DRIFTWOOD - Narrative Competition

Paul Taylor's debut feature is anything but ordinary. Devoid of dialog, the film is a supremely bizarre and absolutely stark take on playing house, turning the roles we play in family life into something wholly different. Part Grimm's Fairy Tale, part Garden of Eden myth reimaging, with two fine performances from Joslyn Jensen and Paul C. Kelly at its core, Driftwood is social absurism at its most striking. -Ben Umstead
