Backstage at the Sundance Film Festival awards ceremony a few minutes ago, “Push” director Lee Daniels, winner of three awards, celebrates with Cinetic’s John Sloss. Cinetic was stoking a sale of the film as the ceremony began tonight, having already stirred the support of Oprah Winfrey and Tyler Perry, according to insiders. Expect Sloss and Cinetic to slow things down a bit now as they bask in the glow of the triple win tonight (and probably try to raise the price amidst a market that has been rather slow at Sundance). The complete winners story is at indieWIRE.com.
