Sundance Beats American Negativity
Posted by Jon Littman on February 1, 2012 in Articles, Innovation, Performance, Stories, Storytelling

Last week I was flown to the Sundance Film Festival to offer my thoughts on a documentary and discovered anew what I love about America.

Robert Redford starred during my childhood in the classic American flick, Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid, and went on to found the wonderful Sundance Film Festival. Sundance, like its rebellious, thoughtful creator, is an innovation lab for what really matters in film, independent storytelling. Redford prizes the environment (natural and human) and understands that creativity — not money or big “stars” — is what matters most in film and life.
