Go Behind the Scenes at Sundance Online
It's official. Starting with yesterday's opening night kickoff, the Sundance Film Festival is officially underway, slated to run through the end of the month.
Sundance may have evolved into a festival for "indie" elites and Hollywood types, but that doesn't mean you, the average viewer, can't enjoy highlights of the festival from the comfort of your own home.
The festival staff have posted (and are continuing to post) a huge collection of videos relating to the festival, with filmmaker profiles, discussions, and behind-the-scenes glimpses at the festival itself.
In the video below, "The Digital Divide," filmmakers Mark Duplass (Baghead) and Jeff Lipsky (Once More With Feeling) debate the merits of low-cost digital filmmaking and "homespun" aesthetics. It's smart, thoughtful content, and it's an example of the best of what film festivals have to offer: a chance for strangers to meet and engage around the topic of cinema.
