Experimenter is among the films that will premiere in Sundance Festival, Variety is reporting. Festival director John Cooper noted that while this yearâ€™s 16 Premieres selections will be among the buzziest, most commercial titles in Park City â€œtheyâ€™re not without an independent feel to them, and thatâ€™s what Iâ€™m always looking for. There is a very independent spirit behind these films.â€
