ScreenCrave is off to the Sundance Film Festival for the first time ever. The festival begins tomorrow night and I’m currently sitting at the airport waiting for my plane (hopefully it won’t be too delayed due to the weather) to take me out to the cold land of indie (well that’s debatable) movies. Brendan Walsh will be joining me at the festival in a couple of days to help me cover the event while I’m here, and after I leave on the 28th.

We will be bringing you reviews of some of the most anticipated Sundance films from filmmakers that you’ve never even heard of before. And assuming that everything goes according to plan, we’ll be bringing you interviews with Mark Duplass, Robert Duvall, Bill Murrary, John C. Reilly, Edie Falco and a whole lot more!

I was a bit disappointed with this year’s line up, mainly because it’s hard to find a film without any A-listers involved. I hardly think that a movie with names like “Ben Affleck” or “Kristen Stewart” attached will have that much trouble finding distribution. Although we’ll be covering many of the bigger films here, the point of the film festival is for the little guys who can’t get distribution because they don’t have any money or “names” involved. They’ve made quality films that deserve some attention.

Living in the digital age, $5 million is hardly cheap. Quality movies can and have been made for under $100k. I’ll be keeping an eye out for films that have had to fight for their spot into the festival and some fresh blood directors who haven’t appeared on the public’s radar. That being said, I have yet to find too many of those films and plan on hitting up and reporting back to you on the following movies…

  • Douchebag
  • The Company Men
  • Get Low
  • Waiting for Superman
  • Cyrus
