Between its world-class cinema, creative spirit and fur-clad celebrity sightings, the Sundance Film Festival is a visual and artistic feast for filmmakers, fans and dealmakers alike. For 32 years, Sundance has brought groundbreaking storytelling to Utah, encouraged homegrown talent and cultivated a sophisticated and enthusiastic local audience for indie films.
The Tribune’s Jennifer Napier-Pearce led a panel discussion with filmmakers Jared and Jerusha Hess (“Napoleon Dynamite,” “Austenland“), Salt Lake Film Society executive director Tori Baker and Tribune movie critic Sean P. Means, who has covered the festival for the past 23 years.
This special live event will air on Friday, January 15th at 10 AM and 8 PM.
