It's Sundance time again!

Park City's favorite local radio station, KPCW, is once again in the middle of all the action, emotion and filmmaking of the 2017 Sundance Film Festival, running January 19th through January 29th. Once again, our veteran news team brings fresh interviews every morning with filmmakers, industry professionals and film festival insiders.

Times, dates and interviews names are subject to change.

FRIDAY, JANUARY 20, 2017

KPCW News Director Leslie Thatcher finishes up the week and The Sundance Reel today, with guest co-host, Friday Film Reviewer and Park City Attorney Mark Harrington. Guests Sean Means from The Salt Lake Tribune and Virginia Pearce from the Sundance Institute join them.

KPCW kicks off coverage of the 2016 Sundance Film Festival's filmmakers with a two-hour special edition of The Sundance Reel. For 51 weeks of the year, Chris Cherniak and Nell Larson are the hosts of KPCW's This Green Earth, our local program on sustainability, green living and the science behind environmental trends. This week, however, they do double duty and take on the filmmakers of the Sundance Film Festival.

Today on The Sundance Reel, Leslie Thatcher invites KPCW film and book reviewer Barb Bretz to talk movies. Barb has taken on the unenviable goal of watching 35 films this festival and has already knocked out 25. That averages more than four films a day, but keeps them straight by reviewing each one immediately on her blog.
