As I had predicted here, names such as Cutter Hodierne, Kat Candler, Maya Forbes, Mona Fastvold and Damien Chazelle would be among the invited guests at the ’14 edition of the Sundance Film Festival. It was such a strong year that even some items that I thought would be dark horse/long shots and might be looking at a fest berth from the sidelines are considered definite dramatic comp material, while some that was fully expecting to break the line-up have been passed up.
Horror “labeled” directors Carter Smith (Jamie Marks Is Dead) and Jim Mickle (Cold in July) broke into the line-up that is usually reserved for the newbie type of director and are coming in with perhaps different genre material. We’re glad to see Justin Simien’s Dear White People break into the 16 – it also acts as the long awaited return of Duly Noted producer Effie Brown. Actor »

Nicholas would play Kristen’s lover in the film, so Jen better »

If the Sundance Film Festival has always been the place to discover tomorrow’s biggest stars in front of and behind the camera during the past 30 years, it seems to have become even more fruitful in recent years. From young filmmakers like Ryan Coogler (Fruitvale Station), Benh Zeitlin (Beasts of the Southern Wild), and Jeff Nichols (Take Shelter, Mud) to ready-to-launch superstars like Jennifer Lawrence (Winter’s Bone) and Dane DeHaan (Kill Your Darlings), Hollywood has quickly found its future in the snowy peaks of Park City. “One of the biggest changes in the last 30 years is how independent film »

In some respects, the 30th annual Sundance Film Festival offers a snapshot of the ways in which the independent film scene has dramatically shifted over the past three decades, said fest director John Cooper, from an ever-widening talent pool to an increasingly sophisticated range of technologies available to filmmakers and distributors. In particular, the slate of 117 features (96 of them world premieres) set to unspool Jan. 16-26 in Park City, Utah, culled from a healthy 12,218 submissions, showcase the form at a new level of maturity — more diverse and welcoming to new filmmakers than ever, but also more exacting in terms of quality.
“Independent film in general has been absorbed and embraced as a vital part of the cultural landscape,” Cooper said. “It’s no longer an outsider sport. It really is part of an American art form.”
“I think the completeness of vision is different now from when I first started 20 years ago, »

Sometimes, things don't work out the way you hoped. It happens to the best of us, and celebrities are no exception. This year was fraught with splits, from Britney Spears and Jason Trawick calling it quits to George Clooney and Stacy Keibler throwing in the towel. We were floored when Miranda Kerr and Orlando Bloom broke the news of their breakup and equally saddened when Nina Dobrev and Ian Somerhalder ended their two-year romance. And let's not forget Liam Hemsworth and Miley Cyrus, who called off their engagement, and Kristen Stewart and Robert Pattinson, who had us rooting for them more than once.
