This undated publicity photo released by the Sundance Institute shows director, Liz Garcia, whose film, "The Lifeguard," 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.
