#tbt Not another Cannes post. Just found this 1998 Sundance Film Festival catalog on the shelf. Did Sundance 1998-2018. Just asked to have two clients do the Sundance Film Labs. Here we come Sundance 2019 !!
Most exciting moment at Sundance 1998 was meeting Robert Redford and Native America chiefs from hundreds of tribes throughout the US and Canada. That year the Audience Award “Smoke Signals“, won for client Irene Bedard, directed by Chris Eyre. @irenebedard . @christophereyre What an honor among @goldengoddesshour Sally Fields, @robertredfordofficial Robert Redford and the native community. .
Sundance began in Salt Lake City in August 1978, as the Utah/US Film Festival in an effort to attract more filmmakers to Utah It was founded by Sterling Van Wagenen @vanwagenenn (then head of Wildwood, Robert Redford's company), John Earle, and Cirina Hampton Catania (both serving on the Utah Film Commission at the time). The 1978 festival featured films such as Deliverance, A Streetcar Named Desire, Midnight Cowboy, Mean Streets, and The Sweet Smell of Success. With chairman Robert Redford at the helm, and the help of Utah Governor Scott M. Matheson, the goal of the festival was to showcase strictly American-made films, highlight the potential of independent film, and to increase visibility for filmmaking.
