As we continue into the awards season in early 2017, more guilds are announcing their nominees/awards for the outstanding films of 2016. Next up is the Directors Guild of America, one of the heavy weights and usually strong indicators of what's to come. The DGA announced nominees for the Outstanding Directorial Achievement in Feature Film 2016, and they've chosen a very unique set of nominees this year. The biggest upset seems to be Garth Davis sneaking in a nomination for Lion, but I've seen Lion and it's a great film, though not one of my favorites. I'm very happy to see Dan Trachtenberg of 10 Cloverfield Lane getting a nomination, as well as Damien Chazelle, Denis Villeneuve & Barry Jenkins. Congrats to all! Full list below. The nominees for Outstanding Directorial Achievement in Feature Film 2016 (alphabetically): › Damien Chazelle for La La Land › Garth Davis for Lion › Barry Jenkins for Moonlight › Kenneth Lonergan »

If you’re wondering where the next Damien Chazelle will come from, look no further than the 2017 Sundance Film Festival short film lineup.
Sundance has a long history of discovering the next generation of acclaimed filmmakers by first championing their short films. Chazelle made his first big splash by winning the 2013 Grand Jury Prize for “Whiplash” (the short). Last year, Jim Cummings won that prize for “Thunder Road,” and he’s back this year with a new short. Also generating a lot of pre-festival buzz is Kristen Stewart, making her writing/directing debut with the short “Come Swim.”
Before the Sundance Film Festival commences on January 19, 2017, here’s a briefing on Cummings’ “The Robbery,” Stewart’s “Come Swim” and eight other buzzworthy shorts (two of which are viewable online).
IndieWire reached out to the filmmakers to ask about their inspiration, production challenges and future projects. Check out our list below, »
