Freedom Cinema Festival Hits Park City Again
PARK CITY, Utah–Freedom Cinema Festival provides a unique, alternative forum for leading grassroots artists addressing socially and politically relevant themes. It runs concurrently with the 2005 Sundance Film Festival.
The second annual Freedom Film Festival features 64 provocative films from around the world, including U.S. premieres. The Festival also includes live music events, panel discussions of activist media, stand-up comedy, and graphic arts/cartooning.
‘‘While other festivals have done a good job of including important political work in their program, the films with the big stars and the big corporate money behind them will continue to get the most attention at these festivals,’’ said Andrew Jon Thomson, the festival’s founder and executive director.
''If there was a prize for 'Best Vibe' the Freedom Cinema Festival would surely have won.’’ said Mark Achbar, director of The Corporation, a 2004 Sundance Audience Award-winner. ‘‘There was a consciousness in all the organizers' choices that did not pervade the larger festival down the street.”
