Lights. Cameras. Snow. A total of 29 Bruins will make the trip north to Park City, Utah to attend this year’s Sundance Film Festival and its 12-year, more-indie independent film spin-off, Slamdance, and UCLA at Sundance, our microsite for all things festive, will also be there to report from the shadow of the slopes beginning this Friday, January 18, through the end of the festival next week.
Second-year film directing student Oscar Alvarez, M.F.A. ’09, whose narrative short film Broken English is one of only 10 chosen to be screened in front of a feature film (The Project) at Sundance, will blog about his experiences. Teri Bond, communications director for the School of Theater, Film and Television, amd TFT videographer and web designer Aaron Proctor will report on the festival—including UCLA’s annual party at Café Terigo on Main Street, a standing-room gala that this year is expected to include the producers of last year’s festival sweetheart, Little Miss Sunshine; TFT board member Peter Guber, head of Mandalay Entertainment; and TFT faculty member Brad Silberling, director of such hits as Lemony Snicket’s A Series of Unfortunate Events.
