Sundance Report – Le Fin

Posted on: January 30th, 2011 by wmapother 6 Comments

What a difference a week makes.  Brit Marling and Mike Cahill have rocketed off in the indie film world, and Another Earth has been shown nothing but love up at Sundance.

We premiered on Monday in a 1200-seat theatre to a standing ovation (very rare at Sundance, I’m told), and to the right is my (blurry) view from stage during the post-Q&A.

Then within the next few days, Fox Searchlight bought the film and will release it theatrically both in the U.S. and internationally.  To the right is the poster that was used at the fest…

Finally, last night at the awards ceremony, Another Earth was given both the Sloan Prize for Science and a Special Jury Prize for Drama.

And all from such humble beginnings…

Many great reviews are all over the web, so I’ll just include one, from the NYT, here.

Finally, one of my final memories:  snow and a (relatively) early hour produce the unusual sight of somewhat empty streets at this year’s festival..

    Hey, I was your welcoming committee for your interview with The Music Scene that was conducted up in The Film Maker's Lounge in the Caledonian Hotel at Sundance. I have to say that you have been the friendliest, coolest, and most down to earth celebrity I have ever met. You were all smiles and all charm, and you left a great lasting impression with this young guy. It's good to know that there are sane celebrities out there amidst all the scandal and sensational media. Keep beein' awesome!
