Sundance to Premiere Zach Braff&#8217;s Kickstarter-Assisted <i>Wish I Was Here</i>

Zach Braff’s Garden State follow-up, Wish I Was Here, is now set for a Sundance premiere. The film, which was partially funded this year by a massive Kickstarter campaign, will join 119 feature-length films selected from over 12,000 submissions. Ninety-eight of those films will make their world premiere.

Braff’s Wish I Was Here follows a 30-something actor who is handling the death of his father. It features spots from Kate Hudson, The Book of Mormon‘s Josh Gad and Ashley Green.

Kevin Smith’s Clerks has also joined the festival as a “From the Collection” midnight screening, which will celebrate the film’s 20th anniversary. Clerks originally made its debut at Sundance in 1994, and director Kevin Smith will take part in a screening to celebrate the anniversary.

The 2014 Sundance Festival is set to take place from Jan. 15-26 in Park City, Salt Lake City, Ogden and Sundance, Utah.
