Sundance, back in the saddle

I’ve never been, but, having applied several times to their annual Screenwriting Workshops, and gotten the kindest rejections, I’m quite partial to the Sundance Film Festival.  And from what I’ve read, looks like things have gotten back to basics, in the best possible way for the quarter-century plus old fest.

The kinds of titles and content which sold quickly (and at somewhat a record pace, at least compared to recent seasons) don’t seem terribly indie, innovative or genuinely unusual.  But the distribution vehicles definitely seem to be evolving, with youtube getting in on the game, along with several new players.  If anyone actually reads my blog, they (I hope) would see I tend toward optimism, so I think all in all, it sounds like it was a good year.
