2008 SUNDANCE FILM FESTIVAL FIRST WEEKEND WRAP-UP

The vibe in Park City has been an odd one, with last year’s wheeling and dealing being replaced with smaller crowds and colder weather. Still, Film Threat keeps the Sundance coverage rolling, and here’s the highlights of the first four days of the 2008 film festival…

LIVE WEBCAM FROM THE FILM THREAT CONDO
If you haven’t caught the insanity Film Threat talk absolute gibberish live on webcam. Highlights so far include:

  • Jamie’s Spirited Explanation of “Savage Grace”
  • Mark and Zack Chicken-Clucking Various Film Scores
  • Chris Gore Doing Anything
  • Don Making Fun of Rory

The webcam is live and streaming throughout the rest of the fest, so catch the madness before it’s a thing of the past. Also, make sure to click on the cam so that you may enter a chat and talk directly to Team FT as we work away at the condo.

There’s still six days left in the festival, and we’re still watching films and running around Park City, so check in with Film Threat daily for updates and we’ll have another round-up for the festival same time next week.

See you on the webcam!
