Sundance

Thanks to a tip off a while ago from Charlotte's Web I'm spending the next four days as a volunteer at the Sundance London Film and Music Festival. I just completed my training yesterday evening and really looking forward to it.

The Sundance Institute is a nonprofit organisation founded by Robert Redford - read about it here. This is their first film festival in London and it's being held at The O2 - this is the old Millenium Dome which was a ridiculously overblown white elephant (it cost 789 million pounds) the government built to celebrate 2000. Thankfully, commercial interests have since taken over and it's now being put to good use.


Go Sundance!

Charlotte: I do hope there's a Sundance London 2013 - I'm not sure it's been finalised yet - fingers crossed.
