The Start of the Festival

Two days ago, I landed in the beautiful but cold Park City, Utah. Since our class arrived, I have been able to explore Main Street a little bit and love the energy and excitement in this small town environment. It has been really neat to explore the Sundance lodges, see celebrities walking around, and getting free food and coffee. I mean what could be better than free coffee? One of the lounges that Devin, Megan, and I visited was the Sundance TV lounge. Not only did we have some tasty food but also received free tickets to go see the premiere of the film, True Story.

I have also started to figure out how the wait list process works for the films. After having anxiety over not getting into a few of the films I wanted, I finally got a number for the film Wild Tales on Saturday night. The film was spilt up into six different short stories that all had the common theme of revenge. I would definitely recommend the film as it was very comical and dramatic. I also stayed for the panel which was interesting because we got hear about how the director came up with the various story lines and how it all came together. The next film that I got on the wait list for was The Overnight which was playing at the Prospect Theater. I didn’t really know what to expect but the film was hilarious. The dialogue between the characters was really entertaining which made it great. Since I have had such a positive experience so far, I am really excited about all the upcoming films on my list!
