From The Festival: Volunteers and Interviews
My first experience with the Sundance Film Festival has allowed me to interact with many different people who have varied views on the festival and independent cinema. One such encounter happened when I was waiting in line, at the Racquet Club Theater, to get into the Shorts IV program. I was at the very front of the line and struck up a conversation with Aurora, a Sundance visitor and volunteer, and we spoke for a long time. Given the opportunity, I decided to record the ‘interview’ and asked Aurora a few questions about her Sundance experience and how it had been for her. I was surprised and amazed at some of the experiences that she had to share, which displayed her enthusiasm for independent cinema and her choice for volunteering at the festival. I hope to meet more individuals who are able to expand my understanding of independent cinema, and the festival, through their knowledge. I have uploaded the interview below and I hope you enjoy watching it!
