Can a computer pick films that are likely to win at Sundance better than a human can? Deconstructing Sundance analyzed a variety of factors around Sundance films over the past decade to create a computer program that would pick the films which would do best (and worst) at Sundance. Factors considered included specific words used in film reviews. Golden words include: academic, dialogue, girl, focus, journey and sex. Kiss of death words? Africa, emotional, beautiful, inspired, riveting, sexy and subtitles. Also considered were which critics consistently pick winners - or losers. Also, even though Sundance highly promotes digital, films shot on digital only have a 19% chance of winning. We thought it might be fun to see how the computer program stacks up against a real person who has seen many of the films and heard the buzz on the ground, and see who does better.
