Sundance Film Festival – January 19-29, 2006
Today marks the beginning of the Sundance Film Festival, one of the most well known celebrations of American and international independent film. The Sundance Institute was founded by Robert Redford in 1981 in Park City, Utah. To learn more about the institute and the festival, check out their website.
