During the interterm, some of our students had the unique opportunity to visit the Sundance Film Festival in Park City, UT. For about a week, they were able to experience this prestigious festival, and get a taste of what industry life is like.

Kendall Goldberg (BFA/Film Production ’17) wrote a bullet pointed journal of her time there, and was kind enough to share it with us. Let’s take a look at what she did!

  • After we landed, our first stop on the way to our condos was Whole Foods. As I was going down the aisle, I ran right into my absolute favorite director, Joe Swanberg. He knew who I was! What a fantastic way to start this experience!
  • Opening Night Party – This social gathering was a really fun way to start off Sundance. It was cool to recognize faces from the films I love, and to be able to go up and talk to whoever I wanted. The most memorable part of this night was dancing with Travis, Sorrel, and Ciara…they really know their moves.
