Every January the creative forces of Hollywood migrate to Park City, Utah for the annual Sundance Film Festival. Over the past decades the festival has introduced audiences to some of the most ground-breaking films, and with its popularity increasing every year, it now attracts over 45,000 guests during its ten day run.
Originally, the focus of the Utah/US Film Festival was to conduct a competition for independent American Films, later the Festival was re-named into Sundance and now also showcases International films.
2013 is a successful year for German and Austrian filmmakers, with several movies selected for the prestigious festival. From Germany, “Houston” by director Bastian Günther and from Austria, “Soldate Jeannette” – a European Film Conspiracy by Daniel Hoesl. Furthermore the German co-productions “Circles” by Srdan Golubovic and “The Future” by Alicia Scherson will be showcased, as well as the documentary “The Machine which makes everything disappear” by Tinatin Gurchiani.
Up-and-coming Austrian cinematographer Matthias Grunsky will attend the festival with his latest movie “Computer Chess”, by filmmaker Andrew Bujalski. Mr. Grunsky says: “I am thrilled to go to Sundance for our premiere and to mingle with inspiring filmmakers. As the cinematographer I am especially excited to find out how our unconventional visual choices will be received by the festival audience.”
We wish everyone good luck at the festival!
