Sundance will rock u with heavy musical line-up for the 2008 Film Festival

Sundance Institute announced today the musical line-up for the 2008 Film Festival. The festival will feature staples such as Music on Main and Music Café, complemented by distinctive live performances, panel discussions, and multimedia presentations. The 2008 Festival line-up will feature numerous films that showcase music and musicians such as CSNY DÉJÀ VU, featuring Crosby, Stills, Nash and Young, U23D, and PATTI SMITH: DREAM OF LIFE. The 2008 Sundance Film Festival runs January 17-27, in Park City, Salt Lake City , Ogden and Sundance, Utah. A complete list of films and events is available at the Sundance Institute website at www.sundance.org/festival.

2008 marks the 10th Anniversary of the Sundance Institute Film Music Program, which sponsors music showcases and roundtables at the Festival as well as labs for film music composers held each summer at Sundance, Utah. The Sundance Institute Film Composers' Lab and the intensive, four-day Documentary Composers' Lab allow filmmakers to work closely with accomplished composers, exploring their works-in-progress in relation to musical score. Fellows are selected from filmmakers receiving support both from the Sundance Filmmakers Lab and the Documentary Fund. This year's Sundance Film Festival continues this commitment by highlighting the interconnectedness of music and film, attracting both music industry veterans and top music media.

This year's Festival will offer a wide range of musical encounters. This year marks the 10th anniversary of the Music Café, produced by ASCAP. Over the last decade, ASCAP has provided stellar programming, presenting artists associated with Festival films along with other notable musical performances throughout the Festival. The 2008 line-up is no exception with John Rzeznik, Meiko, Patti Smith, Peter & Gordon and Sea Wolf among others slated to perform. Music on Main, featuring Gold Streets, Ha Ha Tonka and Meridian West, is an event open to the general public. DJ Spooky will headline at New Frontier on Main along with Sundance Institute Composers Lab alum Shahzad Ali Ismaily, and BMI, a founding sponsor of the Sundance Composers Lab and longtime Festival participant, will present BMI Snowball, featuring The Aggrolites and Nick Urata from DeVotchKa. Festival sponsors Ray Ban, ZonePerfect and Turning Leaf Vineyards will also showcase live music in their own venues.

"The Sundance Institute's commitment to artistic process and expression is by no means limited to film. Music has always been a core program for us and the upcoming Festival highlights this like no other," said Peter Golub, Director, Sundance Institute Film Music Program. " We are passionate about the music panels, films and performances slated for this year. The musicians performing range from emerging talent to legendary artists."

Sundance Institute has from its inception recognized the importance of music to independent filmmaking. The Institute is committed to supporting musicians; from its composers labs, to presenting titles that showcase musical artists, to recognizing films that feature renowned composers and original soundtracks.
