We asked filmmakers to share five things about Sundance - whether it be things to know before coming to the festival, their five favorite memories or the top 5 trends at this year's events. Find out what they had to say.
Feeling almost breathless (and it wasn't the altitude) at the end of Man On Wire, only to have Phillipe Petit himself come out for the Q&A. As he deflected one question after another in the most charming way possible, I felt especially lucky to have my job.
Dancing like crazy at the Cinetic party, (maybe to "Come On Eileen"?) only to look over my shoulder and realize that the girl dancing behind me was Hannah from American Teen.The film was a highlight of the fest for me, and seeing her and her fellow "Teens" raging through Park City was pretty great.
Sneaking into a "gifting suite" at the end of a particularly lame film party. I don't think that the poor product shiller ever really knew what hit her, as my friend and I posed as Producer and Star of a Very Important Film. It wasn't a Wii, but it'll do . . .
The wickedest post-Dance cold imaginable. Apparently, seven straight days of not sleeping is a recipe for misery and flu. Maybe I'll remember that next year. But I doubt it.
