Personal Quote:

[on showing his film American Hardcore (2006) at the Sundance film festival rather than at Slamdance] "No, I haven't sold out. It's more punk for me to bring this film to Sundance. The obvious audience is Slamdance; the less obvious audience, is bringing 'American Hardcore' to Sundance. Preaching to the unconverted." See more »


Was a co-founder of the Slamdance Fesival in Park City, Utah, which he helped organize as an edgier alternative to the Sundance Film Fesitval. See more »
