The 07 Sundance Film Festival will start up here in Park City today.
We'll be overrun with PIBs (People in Black; a local name for the hordes of New Yorkers and LAers.) for the next 10 days or so.
I love Sundance. It's one of the reasons I moved from Manhattan where many of my friends were film makers and actors. (My sisters a Hollywood Agent at AEF and I've set her up a blog at KidAgent.net) The most films I've seen at Sundance in one week... 26. My ass hurt like hell.
I take it easier these days. Last year I opted to see only the award winners during one day at the Eccles Center.
I've compiled a short list of some of the sites I've been reading regarding Sundance. For the most part they're created by indie film makers who are attending the event.
I've always found parallels to indie film making and general entrepreneurship (although the indie guys I know would have a heart attack if I suggested they were actually in business and not just sticking it to the man.)
Sites and blogs where you can feel the agony of the film makers and actors trying desperately to get into a party or meet that special someone (usually a producer).
