Sundance is adding to it’s already crowded slate of films premiering next month in Park City, Utah. The institute announced Monday that three additional films will make their world premieres at the festival: Gurinder Chadha’s "It’s a Wonderful Afterlife," Lisa Cholodenko’s "The Kids are Alright" and Galt Niederhoffer’s "The Romantics." These films won’t be eligible for any awards, however. They’ll be screening out of competition.

“When the opportunity to screen the latest films from three extremely innovative storytellers presented itself, we knew we could not deny our audiences,” John Cooper, director of the Sundance Film Festival, said in a statement. "As an added bonus, all three are alumni of the festival, so we are thrilled to be able to support them returning to Sundance with their newest work."
