I just arrived in Park City today for another round of premiere screenings, panels, and parties at the just started Sundance Film Festival. This is my first year actually covering the festival as press for YOMYOMF, so expect a series of reports in the coming week. Last year, YOMYOMF had a bigger presence because of Offender Justin being on the main jury. You can read our 2012 Sundance coverage here.
Justin has been busy, you know, directing a little film called FAST SIX, so his whole Sundance trip was scrapped this year. However, as an alumnus, he was invited back to participate in a panel discussion called POWER OF STORY, where he will be talking about the film craft with other directors like Mike White, Jane Campion and Richard Linklater. We’ll cover that panel in a future report soon.
Particular films of interest for me, personally, are the new Shane Carruth (who made a wild debut with PRIMER at Sundance 2004 and won the grand prize) film UPSTREAM COLOR:
Park Chan-wook’s American debut with the gothic looking STOKER:
And of course, the world premiere of Evan Jackson Leong’s Jeremy Lin doc, LINSANITY, which premieres this Sunday. Check out the teaser trailer:
There’s some BLT lineage with Evan, since he was with the BLT crew back in the day, and he also directed the doc behind the film. BLT GENESIS, which coincidentally, you can watch for free on our YouTube channel. We’re really proud of Evan and look forward to seeing how his journey, as well as Jeremy’s, moves forward.
So stay tuned for Sundance coverage right here on YOMYOMF.
