Expect A Rollicking Sundance Film Festival

The media is already cranking out articles about the Sundance Film Festival, saying it could be one of the best ever. The festival runs Jan 20-30 in Park City, Salt Lake City and surrounding communities.

There is still time to get involved in the festival. Find information here.

The Park Record newspaper has an article titled: Prepare for a rollicking Sundance: the big-spending corporations might be back. Below are details.

The 2011 festival, which starts Jan. 20, could be a rollicking affair, replete with ambitious new setups from the corporations and the return of some that had been missing for a few years, people with knowledge of the intentions said just after New Year's.

Some of the most ambitious of the newfangled corporate setups -- the Tao nightclub turning part of an Old Town garage into a hot spot for Sundance and Microsoft search engine Bing creating a space in the vacant Claim Jumper building -- have been publicized. Others might not have finalized the plans yet and will seek the proper permits as the festival approaches.

"Companies who hadn't had places recently are spending money again. They're back to spending money," said Christopher Ryan, the Los Angeles-based curator of a compilation of corporate setups and parties during Sundance.
