The 2015 Sundance Film Festival kicks off tomorrow and we've been chatting with some of this year's filmmakers about their work, career and influences that inspired them along the way. Many of these filmmakers attribute their love and pursuit of film to the most successful Sundance alumni like Quentin Tarantino, Steven Soderbergh, and Kevin Smith yet so many were inspired by the brilliant smaller films from Jennie Livingston, Tom McCarthy and Todd Field. During the festival, we'll share our interviews with these filmmakers but first, let's take a look back at a timeline and clip gallery from some significant Miramax films that came from the festival over the past twenty years.
