    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 ...

    PARK CITY '08 | Swagdance, Brand Dance, and the Struggle to Focus on Film

    "Sundance is weird," Britney Spears infamously quipped five years ago in Park City, quoted by the New York Post's Page Six. "The movies are weird - you actually have to think about them when you watch them." The most surprising part of that moment was the fact that the tabloid and Spears were actually in Park City to cross paths and create such a perfect illustration of the Sundance Film Festival. Recent events will prevent Britney from a trip to Park City this year, but Paris Hilton will again be in town for the festival, likely trailed by a host of paparazzi and gossip hounds. Like Paris, many of the famous festival crashers who travel to P...

    PARK CITY '08 | Buzzing About The Buzz and Managing The Chattering Class as Sundance Approaches

    The Sundance Film Festival, which opens Thursday, is where the new year's buzz starts for independent and specialty movies hoping to become arthouse hits. Last year's Sundance worked for "Waitress," "Once," "No End in Sight," "The Savages" among others, but how does the buzz get started at Sundance? Or, more to the point, how do some films get on festgoers' short list of must-see titles even before the event begins? Such advance buzz can be a leg up for those films since, according to Sundance's press office, 121 feature-length entries are being shown this year. With 87 being world premieres, 14 North American premieres and 12 U.S. premieres,...
