Pass the Remote: Six Bay Area-connected films you’ll want to stream during Sundance

Even though San Francisco won’t be whipping up a cherry-picked platter of Sundance FilmFestival goodies like it did last year via the Roxie, cinephiles needn’t grumble nor grouse. You can still sample from the entire 2022 program even if no Bay Area drive-in will be screening them. And the good news is that you won’t even need to budge from the comfy couch to do so throughout the fest’s run, Jan. 20 through Jan. 30. Best not dilly-dally, though. Jump onto the Sundance Film Festival website on Jan. 13, when individual tickets go up for sale for virtual screenings of the 82 features and episodic series. Surprisingly, even virtual screenings have capacity limits.
