Wonders: Sundance Film Festival

"So that increased for me so that I became an advocate".

"It's beyond any scale that we're used to thinking about", Gore said of climate change in remarks following the premiere.

"Those people who weren't interested or figured 'who cares?' are now going to realize that they are going to be directly affected and they are going to step up", Redford said.

Redford, in his opening remarks, noted that his Sundance Institute got some of its seed funding from the National Endowment for the Arts - a federal agency that, according to reports Thursday, the Trump administration wants to eliminate, along with the National Endowment for the Humanities. "Maybe we would have thought, 'We did it, we pushed through that glass ceiling.' So the groundswell that we needed before that election is happening now". "I think that's very, very healthy".

Madame Tussauds Unveils Updated Trump Wax Figures
Unlike the Barack Obama figure revealed in 2009, who was depicted smiling, Trump appears resolute and quite serious. This is, says Tussauds, the only place in the world where visitors can "meet" figures of all past presidents.

As for looking ahead, Putnam said the Sundance Film Festival is a time to celebrate the festival's founding values, including freedom of expression from all sides of the issues, especially when it comes to documentary film. "It has a chance to really tell the story so the public can really digest it and see how they feel about it".

The march was one of hundreds around the world held the day after Trump's inauguration to advocate for women's rights, including a massive gathering in Washington, D.C. "That's a conversation that a lot of artists will be thinking about".

In 2013, Park City Municipality and Sundance organizers reached a long-term deal to keep Sundance in Park City until at least 2026, as previously reported in The Park Record. "Pretty soon, the only way to grow is up".

Every year in January, the who's who of indie filmmaking descend upon Park City, Utah for the Sundance Film Festival. "We have a wonderful relationship with this city and the Mayor (Jack Johnson). If we didn't know that before, we know that now".
