The Sundance Film Festival is underway in Park City, Utah and we have the list of films that will make it onto your radar.

IT’S THE MOST WONDERFUL TIME OF THE YEAR! No, no, no. THAT time has come and gone but if you are a movie buff like I am , the beginning of the new year brings us award season and the start of the film festival circuits around the world. While half of Hollywood hung around for the SAG (Screen Actors Guild) Awards last weekend, the other half took to the slopes of Park City, Utah for what is said to be an unforgettable line-up at the Sundance Film Festival.

The star- studded week-long festival is drawing to a close on February 1st and has screened almost 120 films. Among the genres that were presented, the LGBT category seemed to grow in strength from the previous year.

Below are some lesbian and bisexual titles that I suggest you keep a look-out for as they make their way through the 2015 film festival circuit.
