Robert Redford Announceth: Sundance Hath Returned!

January 15th, 2009 // 2 Comments

Just before the opening of the Sundance Film Festival, the event’s founder Robert Redford held a press conference at the Egyptian Theatre. Lah-dee-dah, media niceties and whatnot.

And then on Thursday, the festival kicked off its 25th year in Park City, Utah. That would mean that it first started in 1985, so if you’re remotely near my age, you should shudder at how OLD THAT MAKES YOU FEEL.

But on to happier thoughts, like how adorably director-like Robert looks in this ensemble. We need more directors wearing berets! And gesturing with riding crops wildly about!

    That means the festival started in 1983.
    If that makes you feel any better . . .
