This undated publicity photo released by the Sundance Institute shows director, Lake Bell, whose film, "In a World...," is included in the U.S. Dramatic Competition at the 2013 Sundance Film Festival in Park City, Utah. The festival has 50-50 parity in directors, with eight women, eight men, among the 16 films in the competition, a record that female filmmakers consider a hopeful sign that they are making progress toward equal time with males.
