Sundance Festival 2012.

Sundance film festival 2012.

As the sun dances –ah, clichés – in Park City, Utah, the Sundance film festival rolls around again where films look for distributors and get them criticised by the critics of the world. Sundance has shown what have been known as classics. In fact, my Memento poster about a foot to my right reads “Official Selection – Sundance Film Festival” so it’s something to boast, to be used as an advertisement. It’s the largest film festival in the United States and it’s for international independent filmmakers in search for recognition, distribution and criticism. It has made the careers of famous directors who you can’t imagine the film world without like Quentin Tarantino (Reservoir Dogs), Steven Soderbergh (sex, lies and videotapes) and Kevin Smith (Clerks). Another interesting turn for the constantly growing Sundance is its first festival outside of the US which will be held in London in late April this year. Now it’s time to analyse the releases of this year’s Sundance.
