    Sundance may be over for another year, but as Gordon Gekko mercilessly taught us: money never sleeps.

    'Beasts Of The Southern Wild' Tops The 2012 Sundance Film Festival Awards

    It was a fait accompli pretty much from minute one. No other film at the 2012 Sundance Film Festival got as much buzz as 29-year-old first-time feature-length filmmaker Benh Zeitlin's "Beasts Of The Southern Wild," a mythical film about a 6-year-old girl who lives in a southern Delta ...

    As a documentary fan and critic who discovered so many great nonfiction films at Sundance last year, including some of 2011’s very best, it’s been extremely painful not being in Park City this week. To make things easier I could have tried to ignore the festival, stayed off Twitter, not ...

    Director Nicholas Jarecki Reveals How Being Kicked Off 'The Informers' Helped Fund Sundance Hit 'Arbitrage' & Casting Brit Marling Over Skype

    Last year at Sundance, “Margin Call” premiered to an unprepared audience who were greeted by a fantastic ensemble in a gripping drama that gave an insight to the 2008 financial crisis and resulting recession. That film went on to become something of a sleeper hit, and last week, picked u...

    Sundance: Director Antonio Campos & Stars Of 'Simon Killer' Talk Sociopaths, Sex & Soundtrack To The Film

    This time last year, "Martha Marcy May Marlene" was the toast of Sundance, an impossibly tense drama that, even by the end of 2011, still stood tall as one of the year's best films. Last January, "Afterschool" helmer Antonio Campos was in Park City in his capacity as a produc...

    James Murphy & 'Shut Up And Play The Hits' Filmmakers Say Full 4 Hour Madison Square Concert Will See The Light Of Day

    We can't remember the last time a concert movie caused quite as much excitement as "Shut Up And Play The Hits."

    Sundance 2012: Managing Cynicism - This Year’s Great Crop of Sundance Online Shorts

    Maybe I’m a bit cynical. That’s not true. I’m excessively cynical. I could claim it comes naturally once you’ve seen too many movies, but that doesn’t seem like a good enough excuse. And the 2012 Sundance Film Festival’s online shorts are a perfectly illustrative ...

    Sundance: Buzz Films 'Arbitrage,' 'Liberal Arts,' 'Robot & Frank' & 'V/H/S' All Find Distribution

    As ever, Park City is quieting down again, with many journalists heading home after a week of Sundance madness. We've still got plenty of coverage to come, don't get us wrong, but as is so often the case with festivals, things tend to be a little front-loaded. Except, that is, on the busines...
