How Dan Mirvish Started Slamdance Film Festival
Learn all you can about Slamdance — the coolest festival this side of Cannes — straight from the horse’s mouth.
Last year in Park City, we had the opportunity to talk to Dan Mirvish, a co-founder of the Slamdance Film Festival and accomplished filmmaker in his own right. We dive deep into the story of how Slamdance was born and how its reputation has blossomed and aided in Sundance’s credibility over the years. We touch on the byzantine confusion of downtown Park City, the myriad filmmakers committed to Slamdance (including Steven Soderbergh’s unique relationship to the festival.
Mirvish also shares his approach to directing and producing his own films.
It was a pleasure to speak to the man — we hope you learn from and enjoy it as much as we did.
