iPOP at the Sundance Film Festival, Volume 4

iPOP at the Sundance Film Festival, Volume 4

by Brian Brooks/indieWIRE

The "Napoleon Dynamite" people were thrilled after their explosive screening at Sundance Sunday morning. Audience members were in hysterics at the Library in Park City throught the entire screening. "Harry and Max" received a mixed welcome Saturday evening. Without giving anything away, the sexual themes were a bit too much for some, while others gave the film a great review. One of the film's oh so cute stars, Cole Williams, joined the party hosted by TLA Releasing later in the evening. Also throwing some bashes Saturday night were HBO & Cinemax as well as Sundance Channel and Court TV. And Sunday morning was the annual Queer Brunch.
