WATCH LIVE STREAMING FROM 2012 SUNDANCE
Wednesday and Thursday were days seven and eight at Sundance, and it winds down on January 29. Premieres are few and far between now. I’ve read more than a few articles about the cautious behavior of distributors, the dearth of breakout films this year, and the apparent success story of day and date distribution. More on that later as I find out more about it myself!
Writer-director Ava DuVernay’s much-lauded film Middle of Nowhere has been picked up by Jeff Skoll’s Participant Media and the African-American Film Festival Releasing Movement for distribution. Read the story here on Reuters. This is big news, people!!!!
Days 7 & 8
Among the films by women screened at Sundance on days seven and eight were the following titles. Many of the films previously listed here on Her Film also screened, but as they’ve been mentioned before, they will not be listed along with other titles which are premiering. Titles previously mentioned which screened on days seven and eight include directors Heidi Ewing and Rachel Grady’s Detropia, director Lise Birk Pedersen’s Putin’s Kiss, writer-director Alice Rohrwacher’s Corpo Celeste and more.
