Sundance Could Expand to Brooklyn
According to a report from New York Post, a rep for the Independent Filmmaker Project— an organization set to manage the New York City’s recently announced Made in New York Media Center—has said they are in “very early conversation” about bringing an East Coast-version of the Sundance Film Festival to the Brooklyn area.
Whether this means a screening series or an official festival is not yet clear. One source claims that a space under the Brooklyn Bridge has been scouted as a potential headquarters for the event.
The Utah-based film festival, which was founded by actor Robert Reford back in the early ’80s and has grown exponentially over the years, is set to kick off next Thursday, with films featuring the likes of Reese Witherspoon, Shia LaBeouf, Amanda Seyfried, Matthew McConaughey and Daniel Radcliffe.
