    PARK CITY '08 | Redford Talking Change as Sundance Opens; Fest Touts New Frontier

    Exactly one year before the inauguration of a new U.S. president, Democratic candidates have been talking a lot about the word 'change' in their primary campaigns. Sundance Institute founder Robert Redford immediately picked up on the term in Thursday's opening remarks during a welcome press conference that kicked off the 2008 Sundance Film Festival. "The word 'change' has become big in this past year," Redford noted. "One of the things that Sundance was structured to do is to adapt and to change, we are adaptable in that sense," he continued, "We adapt to the change that comes from the filmmakers themselves as they document the world around ...
