iPOP at the Sundance Film Festival, Volume 9

iPOP at the Sundance Film Festival, Volume 9

by Brian Brooks/indieWIRE

David Arquette stopped by a Fox Searchlight party mid week for Ernest Dickerson's "Never Die Alone," which screens in the Premieres section at Sundance. The movie also stars rapper DMX as a drug dealer who returns to his home turf. Director John Sayles joined the anti-Bush crowd in MoveOn.org's "Bush in 30 Seconds," a program of 30 second spots commenting on the legacy of Dubya. World cinema directors were also in town promoting their films, including French director Guillaume Canet and "Stander" director Bronwen Hughes. The Maui Film Festival folks brought a little taste of the Islands to Main Street, including fresh leis. "Riding Giants" subject and surfing star Laird Hamilton stopped by to get his and some quick photos.

Hanging out at the massive Gen Art "FCUK Hollywood" party at a plush lodge way up (and we do mean way way up) in the mountains for a bash that included a concert by The Roots. The South by Southwest (SXSW) crew including Matt Dentler, Melissa Balin, and Jarod Neece make their way toward the gift bags at the end of the night. Inside the bags were FCUK Hollywood long-sleeved T-shirts and FCUK Safely condoms.
