2008 SUNDANCE FILM FESTIVAL SECOND WEEKEND WRAP-UP

The 2008 Sundance Film Festival is officially over, but the Film Threat coverage continues. If you’ve lost track, or you need a refresher prior to the remaining coverage, we’ve compiled all the reviews, interviews, videos and blogs we’ve completed thus far for your reading pleasure…

LIVE WEBCAM FROM THE FILM THREAT CONDO
The webcam has been retired for now (as Team Film Threat is out of the condo and Park City), but it was a success of gibberish proportions. Highlights included:

  • Jamie’s Spirited Explanation of “Savage Grace”
  • Mark and Zack Chicken-Clucking Various Film Scores
  • Chris Gore Doing Anything
  • Don Making Fun of Rory
  • Mark’s Various Odes to Heath Ledger; or Pete’s “Why So Deceased?”
  • Jeff Goldsmith Unhinged

The webcam will be making a repeat appearance at the upcoming 2008 SXSW Film Festival, but with a few tweaks to allow for more streaming fun out and about the streets of Austin, TX.

We survived another year!
