iPOP at the Sundance Film Festival, Volume 3

by Brian Brooks/indieWIRE

The first weekend of Sundance ushered in with a surprisingly somewhat mellowish Friday evening with only several parties around Park City, a contrast to the hordes of looky-loos parading up and down Main Street last year. "The Best Thief in the World" held their party at Easy Street (near Main Street) with director Jacob Kornbluth as well as its little superstar, Michael Silverman. Also hanging out at the party, hosted by Premiere Magazine, were Sundance vets Gary Winick and Peter Sollett. PBS had a reception in honor of their doc filmmakers at House of Docs on Main Street. The party ended around 12am, but people still lingered inside socializing and whooping it up.
