Sundance Film Festival takes place over 10 days in Park City every January. With 46,731 attendees in 2012, it is one of the largest film festivals in the country. Many famous actors and producers attend from all over the nation to premier their new films.
Princebury’s Greg Fox and I (Jeff) attended the festival during its last weekend. With the San Diego Christian Film Festival only two months earlier, it was a great opportunity to attend a festival as a guest and see it from a different perspective.
Although we saw a few amazing films, one documentary definitely stood out. “The Square” by Jehane Noujaim won the award “Audience Choice” in the “World Documentary” category. The documentary was about the revolution in Egypt, which has been going on for the last two years. For an event with such a large global impact, it has received too little coverage by the media. It was very interesting to see the event through the eyes of the Egyptian revolutionaries themselves.
Overall, it was a great experience and we will definitely be back next year! Princebury is also planning on submitting a documentary to next year’s festival, so be on the look out!
