iPOP at the 2004 CineVegas Film Festival

by Wendy Mitchell/indieWIRE

One slogan for the 2004 CineVegas was "nine days of movies, nine nights of Vegas" -- and the festival certainly provided plenty of Sin City entertainment with activities every night. (Not to mention slot machines within steps of the movie theater). With their sixth festival, CineVegas attracted loads of filmmakers industry execs, no doubt helped by Dennis Hopper's chairing the festival. Some of the bigger names -- Jack Nicholson, Sean Penn, David Lynch -- arrived for the second half of the festival but there were still plenty of folks partying it up during the first few days of the festival, when indieWIRE was in attendance.




CineVegas staffers still look pumped-up halfway through the festival. Left to right: director of programming Trevor Groth, director of operations Jen Jurgens, programmer Mike Plante, creative producer Ruthanna Hopper, and volunteer coordinator Jarom Rowland.
