To promote the Sundance Film Festival’s 30th anniversary, Sundance Institute’s #ArtistServices partnered with iTunes to showcase classic Festival films and asked director Justin Simien, debuting his first feature film Dear White People during the 2014 Festival, to pick his five favorites. All titles are available on itunes.com/sundance.
Simien’s favorites include Sin Nombre (2009), How to Survive a Plague (2012), Love & Basketball (2000), and The Squid and the Whale (2005). Read the full post and more about the films here.

You don’t have to get a job that makes others feel comfortable about what they perceive as your success. You don’t have to explain what you plan to do with your life. You don’t have to justify your education by demonstrating its financial rewards. You don’t have to maintain an impeccable credit score.
You have to pay your own electric bill. You have to be kind. You have to find people who love you truly and love them back with the same truth. But that’s all.
