Sundance Film Festival
The curtains to the 2011 Sundance Film Festival have fallen, but you bet your golden tickets that the planning for 2012 is rolling at speeds more than quadrupole the speed of the projectors that highlight some of the most noted films.
It is far out until next years festival, but it's never too late to start thinking about yourself being one of the first to see a screening to a movie that will be premiered by some of the top filmmakers.
Sundace has the reputation behind it. Reasons being it is the largest independent film festival in the United States. It has been the break out for people like Quentin Tarantino and films like Little Miss Sunshine, Super Troopers, Garden State and Napoleon Dynamite.
And it all started in 1978 in Salt Lake City Utah, headed by a company owned by Robert Redford. The majority of the festival was later moved to Park City Utah and now takes place annually in January, an ideal time for the cool weather and slick slopes.
Well thanks to this kid, and his crew Park City sparkles as one of the brightest cities.
This year brought 200 films in 10 days and throngs of anxious fans, producers, actors and cinematographers all over the main street of Park City.
I'll see you at the box office!
And one more thing...if you ever have the million dollar question of where the name Sundance originated from, don't assume the Sundance Mountain. If you want the buzzer to make money fall...the answer is after Robert Redford's character, "The Sundance Kid."
