Although the protests at Zuccotti Park have subsided since the height of Occupy Wall Street in 2011, it looks like the Occupy movement has a new target: Sundance.
Well, sort of. The Occupy Sundance Film Festival is the brainchild of filmmaker Daniel J. Harris, who in a late November blog post invited the next eight filmmakers who received a Sundance invitation to decline and instead host a renegade Occupy festival.
The truth is that Occupy Sundance will likely be less of an occupation than a literal fringe event like Slamdance started out to be. The organizers plan to set up their alternative festival in Park City, around the official Sundance encampment. Still, in terms of message, the Occupiers are dead on: all of the films to be screened each night from January 21-24 focus on the OWS movement.
There's certainly an irony to Sundance being an Occupy target--it's hard to make the argument that Sundance is "the man," since it was created essentially to celebrate independent American cinema. Perhaps Occupy Hollywood is still in the planning stages--or Occupy Sundance's organizers thought indy Park City would provide better focus more, with media hordes on hand, than Los Angeles.
The following films will screen at the Occupy Sundance Film Festival:
"Occupy Wall Street: The Revolution is Love" by Ian Mackenzie
"Hot Chicks of Occupy Wall Street" by Steven Greenstreet
"That Which We Occupy" by At the Hop Productions
"Where Do We Go From Here" by Ed David
"No One Can Predict the Moment of Revolution" by Iva Radivojevic
"Occupy Wall St: The Revolution Is Inspiring" by Tim Schwartz
