Wow… Thanks, ‘Guardian’

Wow... Thanks, 'Guardian'

We were in the middle of a programming meeting tonight, when I saw this article from The Guardian. In Friday’s edition they list “the 10 things film-goers will get all worked up about in 2008.” And, the first one on their list is, well, us. That’s so cool and unexpected and we really appreciate the shout-out, especially from a major publication and one so far away from our homebase. Thanks! From the article:

The film component of the meteorically successful Texas music event South by Southwest, by contrast, is younger, hipper and more laid-back. It’s also “about the movies”, which means the selection is less commercial, and the visitors are mainly unknown filmmakers and studio cool-hunters… Culturally and climatically, SXSW is hot right now…

I will say, though, that I think they are a little unfair regarding the state of Sundance. I love Sundance, its programming and its programmers. We’re just honored to be considered in the same sentence.
