PARK CITY, Utah (AP) - Just because a film isn't finished doesn't mean it can't get buzz at Sundance.
Director Richard Robbins showed about 10 minutes of his new movie, "Girl Rising," at the independent-film festival Monday, even though he still has a few weeks of post-production work to do on the project.
The film tells the stories of nine girls from different developing countries and shows how access to education would change their lives.
Robbins said he hoped to finish the film in time to compete or premiere at Sundance, but after visiting 10 countries in 12 months gathering footage, he just couldn't make it in time.
The film is set to be released in March and features the voices of Meryl Streep, Salma Hayek, Kerry Washington, Alicia Keys and Selena Gomez, among others.
