Sundance announced today the films that were selected for the U.S. and World Cinema Dramatic and Documentary Competitions for its 2012 festival. The festival will take place Jan. 19 through Jan. 29 at Park City, Salt Lake City, Ogden and Sundance, Utah.

For the upcoming festival, 110 feature-length films were selected. The films came from 31 countries and 46 first-time filmmakers — 26 of which were competing. The films were selected from almost 4,000 feature-length submissions. Films were released in the categories of U.S. Dramatic, U.S. Documentary, World Cinema Dramatic and World Cinema Documentary.

“We are all excited to unveil and experience their selections for the 2012 Sundance Film Festival,” said Keri Putnam, Executive Director of Sundance Institute. “On behalf of my colleagues at the Sundance Institute we are pleased to introduce new storytellers to our audience, welcome new and returning filmmakers to the Festival and kick off a lively cultural dialogue for 2012.”
