Sundance Channel brings the fun, filmmakers and festivities of the Sundance Film Festival from the snowy slopes of Park City into your living room. In Show Five, 'STRANGERS WITH CANDY’s Amy Sedaris helps us hunt down this year’s festival fashion trends and taboos. And we reminisce with Barbara Kopple who comes to Sundance for a special screening of her seminal 1972 documentary 'HARLAN COUNTY U.S.A.' Also we consider the newest festival sensation, the documentary subjects who become popular celebrities on the streets of Park City after their film’s screens. Host Jay Mohr sits down with a round table of festival stars and Alan Cumming gets close and personal with a festival director and actor. 'PUNK’D’s Whitney Cummings penetrates Park City to take the festival’s temperature, while 'MR. SHOW’s Bob Odenkirk gives his own film studies refresher course on the street. Plus profiles of seven filmmakers in this year’s documentary and dramatic film competition.
Jay Mohr, acclaimed actor, comedian and best-selling author, brings his wit and wisdom to Sundance Channel’s coverage of the 2005 Sundance Film Festival as the host of “Festival Dailies,” a daily program produced onsite at the 2005 Sundance Film Festival in Park City, Utah. “Festival Dailies” will report on the films and filmmakers making news at this year’s Sundance Film Festival providing TV viewers with an immediate sense of the Sundance Film Festival experience.
From January 24-29 at 9:00pm, “Festival Dailies” airs as a half-hour program; on January 29th at 9:00pm “Festival Dailies” will be an hour wrap-up that will include an announcement of the 2005 Festival winners. So, be sure to watch "Festival Dailies," Jan 24-Jan 29 at 9.00pm E/P only on the Sundance Channel.
In addition to “Festival Dailies,” all of Sundance Channel’s January programming – including narrative features, documentaries, short films and original series – is devoted to films that have screened at past Sundance Film Festivals.
Under the creative direction of Robert Redford, Sundance Channel brings television viewers daring and engaging feature films, shorts, documentaries, world cinema and animation, shown uncut and with no commercials. Through its original programs, Sundance Channel connects viewers with filmmakers, the creative process, and the world of independent film.
Launched in 1996, Sundance Channel is a venture between NBC Universal, Robert Redford, and Showtime Networks Inc. Sundance Channel operates independently of the non-profit Sundance Institute and the Sundance Film Festival, but shares the overall Sundance mission of supporting independent artists and providing them with wider opportunities to present their work to audiences.
