Sundance Says 'No Truth to Rumors of Plans' for a Big Brooklyn Film Festival

Earlier today, Page Six (of all outlets) broke the story that the Sundance Film Festival was in touch with IFP (the Independent Film Project) to produce a festival in Brooklyn's DUMBO neighborhood. 

According to the Page Six story, "Sundance and the IFP are in 'very early conversations' about doing a project together, an IFP rep said. Sources say the possibilities range from a screening series to a full-blown festival."

Indiewire reached out to Sundance, and a representative there said that "There is no truth to rumors of plans for Sundance Institute to host a film festival in Brooklyn in the immediate future. Our current programming includes events in many regions across the country and internationally, and we continue to seek new opportunities. For now, we are focused on the lead up to our 2013 Sundance Film Festival, which kicks off January 17."

Sundance already has a film series at Brooklyn venue BAM and BAM's own BAMcinemaFest is a rising star in the New York festival world.

The news comes a few months after IFP and the city of New York announced that they would work together to build a NYC Media Center in DUMBO.
