TwoOhSix Picks - 2018 Slamdance Film Festival


Hello, everyone! This is the first edition of TwoOhSix picks for the Slamdance Film Festival and my first festival coverage for 2018.

Out of this big pile of awesomeness, I have compiled my list of the 10 films (narrative, documentary, and shorts) that stood out from the pack as ones I do not want to miss.
