Media Society Dinner – A Sundance Film Festival Event

Wednesday, January 15th, 2014

One of my favorite things about living is Park City, Utah is being able to experience the Sundance Film Festival. For over 30 years, Robert Redford and the Sundance Institute have been working to bring risk taking storytellers to the forefront. I have had a lot of fun at the Festival. You can read about past fun here, here and here. Here is an event we designed and executed for Media Society last year.

The Oscars Were Good To the Sundance Film Festival

Friday, February 22nd, 2013

The Oscars are right around the corner. In fact, the awards show is airing live on ABC this Sunday, February 24, at 5 p.m. MST. This year is particularity exciting because 5 films I saw at the 2012 Sundance Film Festival are nominated.

I am especially excited for Beasts of the Southern Wild. This was a film I saw on a whim, not even knowing what it was about. But I had tickets to see the Grand Jury Prize Dramatic Winner and now I’m in love. I’m in love with the protagist, Hushpuppy, played by Quvenzhané Wallis. She is delightful, powerful and enchanting. It is terribly wonderful to see this film nominated for Best Picture and Quvenzhané nominated for Best Actress in Leading Role.

Also, I saw 4 of the 5 films nominated for Best Documentary:
5 Broken Cameras,
The Invisible War,
How to Survive a Plage, and
Searching for Sugar Man

I am hoping that Searching for Sugarman will win but 5 Broken Cameras was a fabulous film and will provide stiff competetion.

I know everyone else will be paying attention mostly to the gowns and celebrities but I truly love movies and I am so proud that films from the Festival had such a great representation.
