It was announced earlier today the official line-up for the next year’s edition of the Sundance Festival and, to our incredible joy, ‘Ironbark’ is one of the movies to have its first world premiere there. Variety reported the line-up with only the official synopsis so it’s still unknown the exact day that the premiere will take place or which of the cast/crew members will be in attendance, but we’ll keep an eye on the updates that are about to come. Read the official synopsis below:
