2007 SUNDANCE FILM FESTIVAL WINNERS!



So, after a long and competitive festival,
The Sundance Film Festival of 07
breaks records with sales to the motion picture industry.

Why?

Because there were so many excellent entries.

And, because I have this long complicated theory as to how the internet and streaming video sites like You Tube, Revver, Greenimation etc. have created a climate that's receptive to indie films as having commercial potential. But more on that some other time.

I was up late last night watching the Dailies on the Sundance Channel as they ended the 10 day event and had the good fortune to get glimpses of many, if not all of the following award winning entries.

It's really a banner year.
