At a panel discussion on Saturday for the Sundance Film Festival, founder Robert Redford commented on the social and political roles of film in the world today. "I don't know how much films actually impact social movements," he said. But it's definitely worth at least trying to make a statement, he added; "It's not only possible but actually exciting to entertain and inform at the same time." Producer Jeff Skoll feels the same way, having developed campaigns for "North Country", "Syriana", and "Good Night, And Good Luck", each of which was about a related social issue. Sean P.
