The Problem and the Promise of Sundance

user
Thursday, January 18----I will freely admit it….I’ve got a little bit of a problem with Sundance. First, there is the location. As a New York City boy, I have always been more impressed with film festivals that happen in real cities, as opposed to the rarified environment of beach resorts (Cannes, Deauville), mountain retreats (Sundance, Telluride) or country wilds (The Hamptons). For me, there is no replacing the mixed vitality of a first class festival that is part of the fabric of a di...

Experiencing The Sundance Film Festival Online

user
Wednesday, January 17-----If you are still thinking of attending the Sundance Film Festival but don't already have your air ticket to Salt Lake City, your Park City hotel reservation, or any film screening tickets....you pretty much better stay home. The small resort town of Park City, with a usual population of 5,000, will swell to quadruple its size starting tomorrow, as the Sundance Film Festival begins a 10-day extravaganza of world premieres, information seminars, extravagant parties and ...

The Gay Edge At Sundance

user
Tuesday, January 16-----As one of the world’s most cutting-edge film festivals, Sundance has been a welcoming environment for gay and lesbian filmmakers and their unique perspectives. Whether immersed in gay subject matter, or adding a particular gay spin to a genre film (hard to describe, but you know it when you see it), there is a definite gay edge at Sundance, evidenced by films with GLBT interest (that’s Gay, Lesbian, Bisexual and Transgender for you sexual innocents) and a slew of in...

The Comic Touch of Mike White

user
Monday, January 15----Mike White, whose off-kilter humor and perceptive writing made such films as CHUCK AND BUCK and THE GOOD GIRL major Sundance discoveries of the past few years, is back in Park City with an auspicious directorial debut, YEAR OF THE DOG. In this richly crafted tale of self-discovery, White invests his characters and their comedic confusion with a poignant and compassionate touch that has pundits dubbing the film as next season's LITTLE MISS SUNSHINE. Not only has White c...

Anthony Hopkins Makes His Directorial Debut

user
Friday, January 12----What do you do when you have won every acting accolade there is, including the coveted Oscar for an iconic role (that people will still be talking about 100 years from now)....direct an independent feature, of course. That is the decision made by Anthony Hopkins, whose Oscar-winning turn as Hannibal Lecter in Jonathan Demme's THE SILENCE OF THE LAMBS, is the stuff of legend. After more than 100 feature and television films in a 40 year career, Hopkins (at the ripe young a...

The Return of Hal Hartley

user
Thursday, January 11-----One of the highlights of the upcoming Sundance Film Festival (at least for me) is the opportunity to see the latest film from Hal Hartley, who really put independent film on the map back in the day when it was still a small community of individual risktakers. With such films as THE UNBELIEVABLE TRUTH (1989), TRUST (1990), SIMPLE MEN (1992) and AMATEUR (1992), Hartley stood at the nexus of European film artistry and American independent virtuosity. His last few films h...

Film In Focus: KING OF CALIFORNIA

user

The film is the directorial debut of writer/director Mike Cahill.

The Bizarre World of Park City At Midnight

user
Monday, January 8----The Sundance Film Festival will keep alive the bizarre spirit of the “midnight movie” with its series PARK CITY AT MIDNIGHT. The program contains eight films that are likely to shock the bleary-eyed viewer and offer a lively last stop in the nightly film-going circuit. This year’s midnight madness continues a tradition that saw the breakout of such recent landmark films as THE BLAIR WITCH PROJECT, SAW, OLD BOY, and AMERICAN HARDCORE. Cultists, you have found your Su...

Five Directors Compete for Sundance Travel Package

user
Friday, January 5----Pity the poor independent filmmaker who is trying to go to the Sundance Film Festival on the cheap. The Festival has become an industry must, so film distributors, production executives, talent agents and other professionals (all with expense accounts) tend to gobble up almost all the available hotel and condo space, the best tables at restaurants, and the other amenities that exist in crowded Park City. Filmmakers on a budget need to be creative, and this year, official ...

Sixteen American Indie Documentaries Compete At Sundance

user
Thursday, December 28----With documentary films experiencing a commercial and critical peak, the stakes have never been higher (and the rewards greater) for the sixteen American Independent documentary features competing at this year's Sundance Film Festival. Considering the box office clout of such films as AN INCONVENIENT TRUTH and THE MARCH OF THE PENGUINS in the past year, one can expect some of the most ferocious bidding wars will be unleashed for distribution rights to many of these fil...

Sundance Dramatic Film Competition

user
Tuesday, December 26----The Sundance Film Festival will see sixteen World Premieres compete in the Festival's prestigious Independent Dramatic Feature Film Competition. It is further evidence of the Festival's critical role as a festival of discovery that all the films in this sixteen-film competition are world premieres, unseen by all but a few close associates and the Festival's programming committee. The anticipation is high, as are the stakes for film distributors in the weeks leading up to...

CHICAGO 10: A Sundance History Lesson

user
Thursday, December 21----If another indication of the growing influence of non-fiction film was needed, the prestigious Sundance Film Festival has decided to open its ten-day celebration of indie and international cinema with a documentary film. CHICAGO 10, a factual and fanciful look at the infamous trial of organizers of the demonstrations at the Democratic National Convention in Chicago in the summer of 1968, a turning point in America’s evaluation of the Vietnam War, will open the Festiv...
