Inspiring for new filmmakers
13 March 2000 | by (Bogotá, D.C., Colombia, South America) – See all my reviews

I bought this video from amazon, and thought it was a sample of trailers of Sundance Film Festival, but I was surprised to find a more interesting documentary, with interviews to newcomers as to independent big names. I saw all kind of filmmakers, and that is important, because each of them talked about their work and their points of view about the festival. That gives you an idea of what it means to go to a festival, what it takes, what you leave. The video was shot in 1997, when the Digital Revolution had not begun yet, and the production of a film was very expensive for independents.

I suggest to director Marina Zenovich, to produce Independent´s Day 2, so, we can see the difference the Digital Revolution has made.
