Park City, Day 2: Prep Work

Park City, Day 2: Prep Work

Since the festival doesnt officially start for another day, tonight was spent in front of the TV for a sneak peak at a couple of Sundance films. Screeners are a real asset when planning for some of our early fest coverage. Sure its a film festival, but with so many conflicting events, meetings, and movies, it can be a challenge to catch everything thats on my must-see list. Tonight’s films are a mixed bag. One in particular will be a huge crowd pleaser, but more on that later…

Meanwhile, we realized today that its impossible to ease into Sundance mode. And its so hard to walk into a film without expectations. Some publicists are madly hyping new films, innundating writers with pitches and talking up their projects hoping to book interviews before we have even had a chance to see the actual movies. But as I was just saying there is so much going on that the competition for attention is fierce.
