Getting ready for the festival
For just over a week, we’ve been watching classics from the history of American Independent Cinema — from Stranger than Paradise and She’s Gotta Have It to Personal Velocity.
I couldn’t ask for a better group of students - they have insightful things to say about each film, and are truly excited to head for the mountains and watch the latest films and meet their makers.
They’re also posting reviews of other independent classics, along with what they’re learning about the nature and importance of the independent film movement that centered on the growing importance of the Sundance Film Festival. Come back here to see what they have to say.
I’m posting updates on Creative Loafing Tampa’s website. Here’s my first post, outlining all of the new films I’m most excited to see: http://cltampa.com/artbreaker/archives/2014/01/13/the-2014-sundance-film-festivals-13-must-see-movies#.UtRQVWRDvV0
