Last quote about Sundance Film Festival

Jon Hamm
I watched Michael Almereyda's movies and I read the script and I thought: I like his movies, I like this script, let's put this chocolate and peanut butter together and see if we can get a Reese's Peanut Butter Cup. I didn't know what the movie would end up being, and then I watched it right before Sundance and I was moved.feedback

Florence Pugh

That was so important in the first couple of scenes to make her something that we could relate to, something quite delicious that we wanted to love and we felt sorry for and with that you follow her and you follow her to the very end even though she'd done so much wrong.feedback

Salma Hayek

It goes beyond the political moment. I think it speaks to the division of perspective in America. You know – two completely different perspectives that are not able to communicate very well right now. And this is what the movie is about.feedback

Dee Rees

I wanted to juxtapose the battle at home versus the battle abroad with the battle at home sometimes being even bloodier than the battle abroad -- to show these two families fighting on the front lines.feedback

Kerry Washington

Sometimes the people who are in charge of those rooms, they want us to feel lucky to be in the room. And we are because we're all really blessed to be doing what we do…but that doesn't mean that I don't get to bring other people with me. Being alone in the room is exhausting…you feel like you have to stand up for the entire gender or race. A woman who shouts out other women? That's just something we all have to do.feedback

Charlie McDowell

We live in a reality TV society. And I think people connected with our new president because it felt normal to them because reality TV is this completely insane, sort of made up world becomes normalized to people.feedback

Jason Segel

It's going to be a scary awakening when you realise this reality show is interactive and he can take your health care.feedback

Charlize Theron

We have to have empathy and compassion. We're gonna become a nation that's so cut off from the rest of the world if we allow him to continue the way he wants to, the way he talks. And I just can't – there's a part of me that will fight until the bitter end to not have that happen.feedback

Mary J. Blige

She was so strong and silent. She never really said a lot, but when she said something it meant something. ... She planted her own food, she killed her own chickens, she killed her own cows. (She) and my grandfather were Hap and Florence. Southern people are really all about love, and that's what I took. I'm born and raised in the Bronx in New York, and as a child I went down South every summer, so I saw my grandmother give love. I was raised with 'yes ma'am' and 'no ma'am.'.feedback

Dee Rees

It's not didactic, it's not preachy. The thing I love about it is it's multiple points of view. Both went away and came back and both didn't quite get what they should have gotten.feedback

Kimberly Steward

(It's) making sure people in society who we've labeled as other have a seat at the table.feedback

Kerry Washington

Sometimes the people who are in charge of those rooms, they want us to feel lucky to be in the room. And we are because we're all really blessed to be doing what we do ... but that doesn't mean that I don't get to bring other people with me. Being alone in the room is exhausting ... you feel like you have to stand up for the entire gender or race. Why do we allow this myth of risk to remain? And if it doesn't work, who cares? So many movies don't work.feedback

Shari Frilot

I thought this is definitely the year to do this because people will be looking for AR.feedback

Daniella Segal

You can take something that may feel very cutting edge and very technological and make it something that every person can find the value in.feedback

Linc Gasking

This really opens up lots of promotional opportunities in entertainment.feedback

Robert Redford

Dig in and dig deep – those two things affected my film-making attitude.feedback

Robert Redford

The news media world has shrunk into more of a sound bite world. Everything's so clipped and short, it gives you no time to digest, no time to contemplate. It's already moving on to the next event.feedback

Martina Costello

The groundswell that we needed before that election is happening now. There's something happening and I feel it.feedback

Ted Sarandos - Netflix

We acquired films ahead of Sundance so that we could really showcase them at the festival.feedback

Ted Sarandos - Netflix

An Oscar would be really great for the filmmakers. We've campaigned four times and it'd be really great to see it through to the finish line.feedback

Amir Bar-Lev - Amazon.com

We showed this film to a number of people and everyone was excited, but the guys from Amazon really understood the film on a level I hadn't really experienced.feedback

Liesl Copland - Amazon.com

Amazon is very much a pro at integrating the theatrical release, Netflix is very much doing things for their large, international subscriber base, and now Hulu is working more like a paid television network.feedback

Robert Redford

Presidents come and go. The pendulum swings back and forth. It always has, it probably always will. So we don't occupy ourselves with politics. We try to stay away from politics per se and we stay focused on what are the stories being told by artists.feedback

Jeff Flake

Somebody said at one point when we burst through it looked like the saloon doors in 'Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid.feedback

Jon Shenk

I think the film will be surprisingly hopeful for people who have been bowled over by Trump's denial.feedback

Jon Shenk

The climate community of environmental activists and people who are concerned about the climate are deeply concerned - of course, how can they not be?feedback

Jeff Orlowski - Sundance

How do you take climate change and make it emotional? How do we make science the hero, make it accessible to people who don't understand this stuff? There's such a compelling story buried within the numbers.feedback

Pierre-Emanuel Fleurantin

The Sundance Festival is a great success story. It is where quality independent movies are screened and we would like to do the same but with independent European films and take them further into cinema screens and on television.feedback

Roy Head

I've had many, many visions of [being] a singer-songwriter/artist/musician, but never really fully understood what talent I actually had until recently.feedback

Roy Head

I'm just really thankful I've had the opportunity to discover myself and also to show the world who I can be before it's too late. I'm 38… and it's important to look at it through the eyes of someone who has struggled a lot. I've done a lot of losing in life; I've done winning in life. To be able to attain that position again where I may have some people behind me that would afford me opportunities to make music again and maybe get it out to a mass audience, I'm very thankful. As a human being I'm really ready for it, where 10 years ago I maybe was not.feedback

Roy Head

I'm just really proud of Billy for coming out as being gay, taking that huge step as a person. I can't imagine how it must have been living before, whenever he was having to keep that a secret. Billy's a beautiful person and he's such a talented singer. I know that he's going to be successful in life, no matter what he does. I'm just honored to have had the opportunity to become friends with him.feedback

Blake Shelton

I really just let everything go and said, Whatever happens, happens. I was really relaxed and just waiting for any outcome, really. That's all I did. I didn't know which way it was gonna go, but I was ready for it either way.feedback

Roy Head

I consider him to be one of the best there is right now, as far as writing songs and delivering on a performance. So if people want to compare me to him, I think I may be doing a few things right.feedback

Roy Head

My dad taught me a lot of things. First of all, it's the same people you meet on the way up that you see on the way down, so it's really important to be polite to everyone and try and build friendships. He also told me a lot of things that he had done wrong in his career, so I try my best not to do those things. [Laughs] It's been incredible living with a mentor everyday.feedback

Trevor Groth

The beauty of independent film is it's not a copycat world, unlike some of the Hollywood stuff where they follow trends. Independent film has always been about originality and choice and something different.feedback

Trevor Groth

You really see a lot of different African-American lives on screen that you don't often see in cinema.feedback

Robert Redford

From the passion and chaos of creativity, independent filmmakers make decisions to harness that energy, break new ground and tell their stories. This year's Festival reflects every step of that journey, and shows how art can engage, provoke and connect people all over the world.feedback

Michelle Williams

The authenticity and the elevation – how he makes things seem so natural and ordinary and then he's able to elevate them to this kind of almost – dare I say – spiritual experience.feedback

Michelle Williams

When I first saw this movie at Sundance, I was really surprised at how frequently people laughed. And then, in between the laughs, you'd hear people sniffling. I love that.feedback

Casey Affleck

I respect him so much and I respect all the decisions he's made in his career. I think he's a beautiful, brilliant model for how we can create meaningful careers and choose meaningful work.feedback

Nate Parker

You're by yourself and all you have in your hand is your script and your dream – whatever that thing is, your voice – and you're surrounded by fear. I've worked very hard to use my art to combat injustices everywhere I see them. That's my voice... and having institutions like Sundance support those things is everything.feedback

James Franco

It's the young Ginsberg. I agree that I wasn't the first person on people's minds when it comes to Ginsberg. Out of all those guys, Kerouac, Ginsberg, Cassidy, out of those guys you would expect me to play Kerouac over Ginsberg.feedback

Robert Redford

We like to provide but we don't do the deciding. That's up to the audience. But the providing is where it's at. I always felt you shouldn't even be in the business if we weren't going to be maintaining a freshness and keeping on the cutting edge of things. To do that you need fresh new blood. You need to reconstitute yourself from time to time.feedback

Alrick Brown

It's our belief that as much as it is important to show the statistics and the death and the horror in Rwanda, you prevent these things, and you prevent war, by showing life and love and by humanizing people, as opposed to dehumanizing them and showing seas of faceless bodies.feedback

Alrick Brown

It was just listening to people and hearing their stories, and not asking them about the tragedy. Actually just asking them about what they thought was interesting, and what happened. And they would tell us stories about love in the midst of all this, or forgiveness in the midst of all this, or something really crazy, and as I heard these things I said 'wow, this is what the world should see,' because we wanted to focus on the hope and the life. Rwandans are kind of over the genocide, they don't want to talk about it, the negativity, anymore. They want to move forward.feedback

Laurine Garaude - Reed Midem

A Sundance producer from the US said to me yesterday that great content is now produced from all around the world. So our catch phrase for this year's MIP 'the quest for original content' couldn't ring more true.feedback
