ICYDK, Sundance Film Festival added a Filipino short film for the first time to its 2021 lineup.
Titled “Excuse Me, Miss, Miss, Miss,” the short film is a satirical look at the plight of contractual workers, with the movie centered on a saleslady trying to get regularized. If the movie sounds familiar to you, that’s because it was also a Cinemalaya 2020 entry.
The film is now streaming at Sundance which, for the first time, is doing a virtual stage aside from its physical one because of COVID-19. It’ll be running from Jan. 28 to Feb. 3 in the U.S. (We’re about a day ahead, so take note of that if you want to catch the movie.) You can check out the festival’s website to buy tickets and access the screening.
Sundance was founded by “Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid” actor Robert Redford and is the largest U.S. film festival. It’s been the setting stage for many influential filmmakers among them Jim Jarmusch, Quentin Tarantino, and Kevin Smith, and now-classic hits “Get Out,” “Napoleon Dynamite,” and “The Blair Witch Project,” among others.
