So we may be playing favorites a little here, but "Linsanity," the critical lauded documentary from this year's Sundance, was directed by Evan Jackson Leong, a former MTV News staffer. That's pretty cool. It was one thing to have a colleague's movie go to Sundance, but it's another thing to have the movie be great by all accounts.

After impressive runs at Sundance and SXSW, according to Variety, "Linsanity" is now scheduled for a limited run to start on October 4 in over a dozen major cities.

"Linsanity" follows Asian-American basketball superstar Jeremy Lin as he starts his character in the NBA. Leong followed Lin for months, even before he came off the bench of the New York Knicks to become a surprise star.

Every year, we get excited to send a team out to Park City, Utah to cover the biggest festival in indie film, but this year's Sundance was especially sweet thanks to one premiere from a former member of the MTV News family.

"Linsanity," the new documentary chronicling the rise of NBA star Jeremy Lin, comes from director Evan Jackson Leong, a former producer for MTV News.

The documentary won over critics in Park City, and now you have an opportunity to watch three exclusive clips from the doc to see what all the fuss was about.
