Sundance Regular Mark Duplass Explains How the Festival Changed His Life And What to Expect From Him This Year

Sundance Regular Mark Duplass Explains How the Festival Changed His Life And What to Expect From Him This Year

Back in January 2005, Mark Duplass and his brother Jay Duplass debuted their first feature length film, THE PUFFY CHAIR, at the Sundance Film Festival. That fateful night in Park City would spark a career that has seen the duo flourish into two of the most influential names in American independent film. Writing and directing studio projects CYRUS (2010) and JEFF, WHO LIVES AT HOME (2011) as well as executive producing the films of other budding filmmakers, the Duplass Brothers have become a staple at Sundance. Mark has also blossomed into a bona fide leading man in the indie world, starring in recent Sundance hits YOUR SISTER’S SISTER and SAFETY NOT GUARANTEED. Adding to his ubiquity is a starring role in FX comedy The League and his upcoming HBO series Togetherness, which he created with his brother.
