SFFL 2017: Independent Film Trumps Reality

Independent Film Trumps Reality - Re-evaluating films in the current political climate and where filmmaking will go from here...

This year's Sundance Film Festival straddled one of the most important shifts in modern American and world history, with the Festival kicking off under an Obama presidency and closing under President Trump. Understandably, Trump talk was unavoidable in Park City and whilst the films screening were developed and made before the election, many have gained a new level of currency in the age of Trump.

Panelists: John Cooper, Director of the Sundance Film Festival; Miguel Arteta, Director of Beatriz at Dinner; Jeff Orlowski, Director of Chasing Coral; Cary Murnion and Jonathan Milott, Directors of Bushwick Wendy Mitchell, Film Programme Manager, British Council and Contributing Editor, Screen International.
