    TIME: After 25 Years, Redford Reflects on Sundance

    TIME Magazine sits down with Robert Redford to discuss Sundance's evolution after 25 years. "...as the festival has increased in notoriety, the merchants came, then celebrities came, then the paparazzi came, then fashion came, and everybody's welcome.
