Speaking about the new category, Sundance lead programmer Trevor Groth stated, "There's this whole movement of getting back to the low-budget aesthetic in storytelling, to the kind of film we'd see a couple decades ago. That's why we created this new section called Next, which is a direct response to that kind of film that's made for less." In addition to this Next category, there is another new non-competitive section called Spotlight.
