Sundance Film Festival

Made In Utah


ADVENTURES OF POWER in Utah

Park City, UT — While many of the festival’s films were developed at the Sundance Labs (like Alex Rivera’s THE SLEEP DEALER) in Sundance, UT, other films are even more local, having been shot in the state or made by locals. Salt Lake City Tribune’s article “Sundance: Utah under the lens” [www.sltrib.com] highlights the local films at this year’s festival. Parts of Ari Gold’s “Park City at Midnight” adventure ADVENTURES OF POWER [www.adventuresofpower.com] were shot in various Utah towns. And then there are a variety of local heroes who hail from the state. The most obvious is Amy Redford – here with her debut feature THE GUITAR – who grew up in the state her father made famous. And the Shorts section includes three locals Jed Cowley (THE LOSS OF A WRESTLING MATCH), University of Utah’s Alex Haworth (THE DEEP), and Salt Lack City local Randy Krallman (FORCE 1 TD).
