What better place for the Occupy Movement to gain further publicity than the liberal-minded, media-inundated ski slopes of Park City, Utah during the Sundance Film Festival? Long a haven for films with potent social causes and political agendas--see "An Inconvenient Truth," "Super Size Me," and a slate of important docs in 2012--this year's Sundance will play host to a group calling itself Occupy Park City, which has been encamped since November, according to ParkRecord.com.
Last November, Occupy Park City staged its first public event, rallying against corporate America and marching on a Park Avenue bank, "a showing that did not draw the large crowds seen elsewhere but one that organizers said was significant nonetheless," it was reported previously at ParkRecord.com.
With the help of hundreds of sympathetic filmmakers and celebrities, the local movement could very well be in store for a big boost in mid-January.
