What a busy day today kicking off with Producer's lunch and speakers, then off to Universal party, Skywalker party, Red State screening, Britdoc party.... Met so many cool people today.
Tonight's screening of red State was quite an event! Queues were unbelievable (but then again everything at Sundance seems to have great big long cattle queues). Kevin Smith created quite a stir, offending studios, sales & distributors but going out there to get his film to screens & audiences himself. He said "How can you do all this work, make this film & get it to Sundance for $4,000,000 & then justify selling it to someone who will then spend $20,000,000 just to get it out to the audiences". Good luck Kevin, go for it!
Nice to end the evening in the bitter cold (must be at least -10 tonight!!) outside the Yarrow chatting to the press about all the screenings (including Jenni Miller a fellow Sarah Lawrence graduate!)
