Every Sundance, Twitter transforms into Park City’s Town Square, a democratic forum for celebrities, filmmakers and audiences to share thoughts on the festival’s programming. If you visited Sundance this year vicariously through Twitter, you may have noticed a few overarching themes (not least of them being the ubiquity of the Duplass brothers). The tweets below showcase the major sentiments from the festival, from celebrity sightings to breakout actors and movies.
The Madness Begins
#Sundance Day 2. Pro tip: don’t forget to tweet about every thing you’re doing or else know one will know how important you’re trying to be

Just chatted with projectionists – this is the first year #Sundance no longer has any 35mm projectors at any venue. One 16mm but that’s it.

General Festival Buzz
I’ve never seen so much money spent throwing parties for indie films. Why can’t they just finance us? They should rename this #Snowchella

If it wasn’t for rampant documentation via twitter, there’d be no proof one year from now that 70% of these Sundance movies ever existed.

It’s not every year that a husband and wife director each have a new film premiering at Sundance. Congrats to Joe and @krisswanberg.

Sundance, AKA Duplass Disneyland
I’ve been told that it’s not #Sundance until you’ve seen a Duplass brother. Mission accomplished.

I’m not saying people at #Sundance are panicking about snow, but someone just ate a Duplass brother.

THE WITCH is an absolute stunner: period horror with a Kubrickian/Stroheimian attention to detail, and really friggin’ scary. #Sundance
— Scott Foundas (@foundasonfilm) January 30, 2015
Jason Segal gives brilliant awards worthy performance as David Foster Wallace in daringly talky road movie The End of the Tour. #sundance

ME AND EARL AND THE DYING GIRL is the real deal. Don’t know how you can see this film and not have it hit you in the heart.
— Steven Weintraub (@colliderfrosty) January 26, 2015
There are many great coming of age boy movies. Diary of a Teenage Girl is that and more from a female perspective. Exceptional. #Sundance

Yes, the new Lady Gaga joint (written by Diane Warren) for THE HUNTING GROUND was pretty stirring. #Sundance.
— Josh Lincoln Dickey (@NotoriousJLD) January 24, 2015
Christopher Abbott makes a big leap in wrenching James White. Will be very interesting to see what roles follow. #sundance
— Logan Hill (@loganhill33) January 24, 2015
Avan Jogia is fantastic in smaller but key roles in “Ten Thousand Saints” and “I Am Michael”. He’s going to be huge. #Sundance2015
— Katie Walsh (@katiewalshstx) January 24, 2015
Bel Powley’s a star — and she looks exactly like a Phoebe Gloeckner drawing. Expect probable ratings controversy, tho. #DiaryOfATeenageGirl
— Ty Burr (@tyburr) January 25, 2015
Jason Schwartzman’s pants python in “The Overnight” is the biggest thing at #Sundance2015 and I do mean biggest. All hail King Schlong.

Also I’m standing in line next to a guy named Robert Altman, according to his sponsor credential. That’s some name to have at #Sundance.

I’m sitting at a table and Keanu Reeves just sat down next to me, put his head on the table, and is now taking a nap.
