Sundance 2017: The Good, The Bad, and The Weird [PODCAST]
This episode of Indie Film Weekly brings reports from the ground on the movies, the acquisitions, and the suspected Russian hacking of independent cinema's beating heart.
Co-hosts Jon Fusco, Emily Buder, Oakley Anderson-Moore and yours truly, Liz Nord have been hitting the snowy sidewalks of Park City, Utah, for the past week, to bring you all the most fascinating stories from America's preeminent independent film event, the Sundance Film Festival. We forego our regular show format to share in-depth Sundance coverage, from the lay of the land, to celebrity run-ins, to the most intriguing films and biggest acquisitions. We also cover one of the strangest occurrences in recent festival memory, a cyberattack on the Sundance online ticketing and admin systems. Finally, we bring news of the other biggest event in the film world this past week, the 2017 Academy Award nominations.
