JP and I have a lovely tradition of attending the Sundance Film Festival every year we've been together (that's 5 years now FYI, crazy!).
And not "lets-go-see-how-many-celebs-we-can-spot" attend,
(although I would be up for that as well, JP will have none of it haha)
no, we actually go to the films! And we honestly look forward to it all year. We've been to lots of movies at the festival and have watched them premier right along side the actors, producers, and director.
There is something pretty incredible about witnessing someone's artistic vision come to life with them right in the same room.
Of course, attending films at the Sundance Film Festival is always risky -- you might not always get into a showing, which is so disappointing, and none of the films are rated so you're always taking a chance when it comes to the scale of appropriateness haha.
But we love it. We love movies -- well-made, thought-provoking movies that widen or even change your perspective. So the Sundance Film Festival is sort of right up our alley haha.
This year we headed up on the first day and were really looking forward to seeing "Camp X-Ray" but unfortunately due to some traffic re-routing and other unforeseen issues we missed the deadline by 1 minute! 1!
Just a heads up - They are freakishly strict when it comes to the film scheduling, whoa.
Anyways, we decided to not let the day be a total loss and took advantage of the beautiful weather by walking around Park City and having brunch at our favorite bagel shop up there.
Not a bad way to spend a morning! And we're going back up later this week! Anyone seen or heard of one that's a must-see? I have a list but it can always be added to :)
