I have been a resident of Park City for over 38 years. Shortly after moving here in 1979 from New York City, the Sundance Film Festival was formed. The festival had been a struggling venue called the Utah/US Film Festival when it was taken over by Sundance.
In the early years, it was a small showing highlighting the work of regional filmmakers creating independent low budget films. Easily accessed by the general public, one could purchase a ticket at the theater. As it grew into one of the most important festivals in the world, a number of women were at the helm.Read More
Film and music go hand in hand. The essence and mood of a scene in a film can be made with music (think the two terrifying notes in JAWS, Rocky’s pump-up music during his famous workout montage, or the simple image of John Cusack in Say Anything holding up a boombox blaring ‘In Your Eyes’ by Peter Gabriel). The music in these scenes made them iconic, and will forever be associated with these films.
That being said, the Sundance Film Festival does not ignore the importance of music. The Festival offers an array creative experiences throughout the 10 day event, many of them being performances. Every year the music scene is quality, and one company makes the scene especially interesting by bringing in the sound of Nashville alternative music into the mix. An array of artists, musicians and songwriters will showcase their talents, and this year, local Summit County musicians are also given an opportunity to get involved.Read More
