I had a great time at Sundance. Had a lot of fun. Made some great contacts. Saw some fantastic films. Disagree thoroughly (as do many others I spoke with) with Daily Variety that the features were stronger than the docs. The docs were consistently my favorite films, though I did miss a few features I wanted to see. 26 films and I still have about 14 more I want to see. Here's hoping many more get distributed this year.



Fave docs:



The Corporation

Metallica: Some Kind of Monster

Citizen King

Overnight



There were a couple of good docs at Slamdance, too:



Faster

Orwell Rolls in His Grave



More that I liked Sundance:



(sort of a hybrid)

The Five Obstructions (very inspirational)



(features)

Primer (very stoked that this, my favorite feature, won the top prize!)

One Point O

Good Bye, Lenin!

Mon Idole

September Tapes

Zatoichi

November

Haute Tension



Missed/Hope to catch later:



The Woodsman

Super-Size Me

Napoleon Dynamite

Edge of America

Employee of the Month

Motorcycle Diaries

The Machinist

The Dreamers

The Yes Men

Brother to Brother

Chrystal

Maria Full of Grace

We Don't Live Here Anymore

The Control Room

Word Wars

Remember Me

Nina's Tragedies



There's a handful of others I'd add, but they're not as high on my list, and this post is becoming too long for casual reading, so...

Only films that will be on Sundance Channel are the ones that it pays for.



Many of the films I listed were acquired. It was a busy market this year. Look to see a majority of them in theaters (major markets) this year, and video before too long.

i'm glad that you had a good time and made some good connections. networking usually sucks for me (i'm good at it, but i don't like it), but it has it's purpose, right?

It's not for everyone, but its target audience loved it and wanted to see another "episode." Learned a lot.

So epski, when a GIRL asks to see one of your films you'll give them a link, eh?



Anyway, I watched it, good stuff.

Uh, I don't remember anyone of either gender asking before, but maybe I'm just forgetting. Weirdo.

Yep, just completely ignore them and then block it from your memory....



Heh. I was just referring to a few months ago when I PMed you and asked what stuff you had done or are doing, and you basically told me it was "too long of a story." That's ok though, it's all good, yo.

Ah, well that's true. Someone wanted to see a film, so I linked it. That's a lot easier.
