The awards season is all go, 2015 is in review and Leo GIFs are flying round the internet (that shadey look though). Meanwhile, Sundance Film Festival 2016 has started to set the agenda for big box office hits and Oscar nominees for the year ahead, so pay attention!

This year Sundance is set to be the perfect combination of new and old talent! Here’s who to look out for...
