2010 Sundance Film Festival

PARK CITY, Utah —The 26th Sundance Film Festival wrapped with new Festival Director,  John Cooper,  painting a positive spin on a year without a true break-out hit.  “Great films make for a great festival.  This year it was as if I could feel a shift in the DNA of the film community—the reaction to the films was inspiring” opined Cooper. New Festival Director of Programming, Trevor Groth, added that hopefully the festival and its awards program “will allow the films to connect with a wider audience hungry for choice.”

Once again, Sundance went off without a hitch despite over 50 inches of snowfall during the 10 day festival.  Sarah Pearce, Director of Operations, told an audience at the 2009 IFFS that Sundance 2010 was produced for nine million dollars instead of last year’s 11 million, but I defy you to clearly see any noticeable difference in the logisitics of what is clearly America’s most important and best -run film festival. There were many excellent films, and,  as is our tradition, we nominate the following films for our Top 10 at Sundance 2010. Our Top 10 was compiled from films in all Competition categories  and from the new Next Category that encourages low-budget voices.
