Sundance Diaries: Supporting Local Film Orgs

By now you know: Sundance, like most everything else, has gone virtual. While there are many great things about this new experience, there are certainly things we will miss, such as watching the films in some of our local theaters. During our Sundance Kick-Off Party, the KRCL Sundance team talked with Utah Film Center's executive director, Patrick Hubley, and Salt Lake Film Society's director of public relations, marketing and communications, Barb Guy, about what their organizations will be sponsoring at this year's Sundance.
