Retracing Ryan Coogler's Sundance Institute Journey

Feature Film Program Founding Director Michelle Satter recalls Sundance Institute's journey with and suppport of Ryan Coogler and his feature directorial debut "Fruitvale Station," which opens in theaters Friday, July 12. Click here for screening times and locations.

I met Ryan Coogler in the fall of 2011 when he came in to have a conversation about his script, Fruitvale Station. As I listened to Ryan speak about why he needed to tell this story, his deep, personal commitment to the project became evident. Between his script, a great short film, (Fig), and this meeting, our interest in supporting Ryan was immediate and unflagging. 

Soon after, we brought Ryan to our 2012 January Screenwriters Lab where he worked closely with Creative Advisors Tyger Williams, Jessie Nelson and Zach Sklar on further developing his script. I remember so clearly that Ryan couldn't be at the Lab for the first evening. This is the moment that the group begins their journey forward as they find a common bond and focus-- I was a bit worried about him coming in late. Ryan arrived the next morning and my concerns were quickly diminished. By lunch he had been embraced by the group. Ryan's beautiful soul and honest charisma were infectious. The Advisors felt his passion to learn and all of the Fellows were joined together as a family who cared deeply about each other's work moving forward.

Enter Place by Design! SXSW Eco's Public Space Design Competition

SXSW Eco Light Garden by Aaron Rogosin SXSW Eco Light Garden by Aaron RogosinThere's still almost two weeks to enter Place by Design, the first ever design competition for SXSW Eco. Place by Design will highlight projects that transform public space through tactical urbanism, creative placemaking, urban hacking, permanent architecture, digital apps and more. These (sometimes) citizen-spurred and (sometimes) government-enacted initiatives are critical steps to making cities more livable and, as a result, more likely to be maintained.

Kickstart I Am Not a Hipster

Destin Daniel Cretton is the writer and director of "I Am Not a Hipster," which premiered in the NEXT category at the 2012 Sundance Film Festival. He is using Kickstarter to help raise funds for the film's release. Click here to help the film reach its goal.

At the beginning of last year, Ron Najor (producer) sat me down and said these words (I'm paraphrasing): "I want to make a movie with you. I don't care if it sucks, I just want to make something." Im not sure if he realized this at the time, but that statement was the most freeing thing he could have said to me. I felt free to take chances, to try something I haven't tried before, to write a story without boundaries or fears. 

When I started writing, I had no idea it would end up where it did. I initially thought I was just going to tell a fun story about San Diego's indie music and art scene, a community I fell in love with while living there for 10 years.

Shorts Break: Medieval Humor and the First-Ever IMAX Short

We are proud to share one of the more celebrated shorts of recent times - More, directed by Mark Osborne. This lovingly animated stop-motion tale of an inventor's search for bliss and meaning in a dehumanizing universe of mass consumption won the Jury Prize in Short Filmmaking at the 1999 Sundance Film Festival. Going beyond a great animation style, the short has an incredible level of humanism and the ability to take you into the story. More took more than nine months to film and was the first short ever shot in the IMAX format. And yes, that is music by New Order that you hear in the film. Though a popular fixture online in the early days of short film websites, the time has come to bring this powerful story back today, where it's still so strikingly relevant.

And here is our own iron man. Jake Mahaffy has been carving out a niche on the fringe of filmmaking for some time now, with the excellent character treatise

Twice Is Nice: Gina Rodriguez on Filly Brown's Second Sundance Premiere

We're launching our coverage of the Sundance Film Festival's journey across the pond at Sundance London with a series of on-the-ground interviews with filmmakers and musicians participating in the celebration of film and music. Filly Brown premiered at Day 2 of Sundance London.

Gina Rodriguez, who dazzles as the strong-willed hip-hop artist in Filly Brown, couldn't help but manage her expectations for the film's Sundance London premiere on Friday.

"The Park City reception we had was so wonderful, and you can't just expect that all the time," she said. "You really have to come down to the ground."

And exporting a story so deeply rooted in Latin culture to a London audience seemed ambitious. But true to her unwavering tendencies as the lead in Filly Brown, the Chicago born actress approached Friday's premiere with a stanch optimism, trusting that the film was as much a tale of human struggle as it was a story of second-generation strife. And wouldn't you know, the Sundance London crowd agreed.
