Sundance 2006.4: One PM Again

Sundance 2006.4: One PM Again

So, Sundance is in full swing. It’s been great running into so many new and old friends around Main Street and beyond. I got a chance to catch Kinky Boots at the Eccles. The film, to be released by Miramax in April, is a true crowd-pleaser, I’m certain the wheels are already in motion to adapt this into a stage musical. If the movie – about an old shoe factory in England making boots for transvestites – makes any money in the U.S., expect a Broadway version in the future. It’s a charmer, and a nice companion piece to The Full Monty.

Anyway, here’s some mPOP:

(Besides a million alternative fests in Park City, some filmmakers take it upon themselves to just advertise as they walk.)

(At the always fun and always crowded Queer Brunch hosted by Outfest, here’s Film Sales Company rep – and fellow blogger – Jared Moshe and Ryan Werner from IFC Films. Jared produced a short doc about a senior prom… you might see it at some festivals soon.)

(IFC TV hosted a very nice dinner at the Hotel Park City over the weekend. Part of it was in honor of their highly anticipated documentary, This Film Is Not Yet Rated. Here are producer Eddie Schmidt and director Kirby Dick, at the dinner. Eddie and Kirby were at SXSW a couple of years ago with The End, so it was great to see them again.)

(During the SF360 Party co-hosted by the SF Film Society and indieWIRE, Wendy ran into Heather Armstrong – aka – and just had to get a photo. Armstrong will be a keynote speaker during SXSW Interactive this March.)

(Also at the SF360 Party are Nashville Film Festival programmer Brian Gordon, left, and Seattle Film Festival programmer Carl Spence.)

(A nice shock at the Discovery party at Zoom was running into Al Gore. He happily gave some photo ops, and I couldn’t resist. Pic by Jonny Leahan.)

(During the Discovery party, Zoom’s upstairs was converted into a tattoo parlor. The folks from TLC show Miami Ink offered up complimentary – and temporary – ink for folks. Some in attendance balked when they learned it wasn’t the real thing. Many more, though, can now be seen walking through Park City with brand-new designs on their skin.)
