TIME Magazine sits down with Robert Redford to discuss Sundance's evolution after 25 years. "...as the festival has increased in notoriety, the merchants came, then celebrities came, then the paparazzi came, then fashion came, and everybody's welcome. But at the core, we program the festival the same way we did the opening year, we program for diversity. So if you look at the festival from the inside, where the filmmakers are, you're going to get one perspective. If you judge it from the party circuit, outside, you might see a different festival. But the truth is we've never changed anything; it's just that the festival's population and exhibition have grown, and all that comes with it."
