Sundance is less than four months away! As usual, I couldn't be more excited.
Unfortunately, this year, where I am going to stay is still up in the air. My friend Matt doesn't have a timeshare squared away yet, and his name IS still on the waiting list, I'm not going to take any chances.
With the help of my friend Chris and the friendly folks at the Queer Lounge, I've been made aware of some sweet discounts from a housing sponsor they've secured. Tomorrow I shall begin researching these options.
Of course I'm already pondering what movies will be slated for screening at the festival. The one I'm crossing my fingers will be included is The Ballad of Bettie Page. It's directed by Mary Harron (I Shot Andy Warhol) and stars the most talented actress of our time -- Lili Taylor.
Anyone who knows me knows that my Lili appreciation goes back five years. I'll unabashedly call myself her #1 fan. Yet she hasn't made an appearance at Sundance even once in my five years there! It's time for the Indie Queen to reclaim her title and show up at the country's premier indie film festival, don't you think?
Before I finish up my first entry in anticipation of the 2005 festival, I have to admit with great regret that I did let this blog go last year. Too many sleepless nights lead to me just not being able to get to it. I'll be making a much more concerted effort this time around. I promise!
