I attended the 2015 Cannes Film Festival with my wife, Sarah, and three kids.
But what I didn’t see was how the festival’s Sundance Entertainment wall, the only wall of its kind in the world, was a microcosm of the festival itself.
We were the only audience, and the only people who had the chance to watch, the festival director and other festival officials explained.
As the sun went down, we were told, it would be time to start our day with a toast to all the filmmakers who had put their lives on the line to make the festival possible.
We saw our own Sundance wall, which had been installed last year to honor the 10-year anniversary of the film festival, and we watched as a panel of filmmakers were given a chance to tell their stories, a story of love and loss, hope and fear.
The panel, led by Sundance’s chief executive, Jeffrey Katzenberg, had the same goal as any other festival director, Katzenbauer said.
It was to make Sundance feel alive, as though we had a stake in it.
It’s the same thing you would think an entertainment industry boss would say: The film industry has to be alive.
And Sundance has been alive for the last decade, Katzner said, speaking in his second-floor office overlooking the Sundance Pavilion, a vast green expanse of glass and marble that, according to the festival website, is “the only place in the U.S. where you can truly see the world through the eyes of the filmmakers.”
It’s a sentiment shared by many of the industry’s biggest names: Sundance is alive, Katzensky said.
The only time you hear that, he said, is when someone tries to tell you otherwise.
Katzensays the film industry, like the rest of us, is in the middle of a period of tremendous change.
Its audiences are changing.
Its filmmakers are changing, and it’s trying to figure out how to keep up with that, and keep growing, while still being the festival that it is.
That’s the challenge that Katzen and his team have faced over the last few years: How to keep the festival alive while also helping filmmakers get the financing they need to make their films and to survive.
The film world is changing.
And filmmakers are looking for new ways to keep making films.
Katzenski has seen a lot of this, but he also sees the festival as a key element of that.
A decade ago, he was one of the leading film festivals, with the annual Sundance film festival now in its sixth year.
He founded it in 2010 to honor and promote the work of independent filmmakers, which has grown to include such stars as Spike Lee, Woody Allen, and Sofia Coppola.
Katzler has been an active board member, and has been a longtime advocate for the industry.
In the past year, he has been the chairman of Sundance International, the largest producer of independent films in the United States, and is a director of the International Sundance Foundation, which funds the Sundances festival.
Katzanov has been at Sundance for a little more than a decade.
But he’s always been more interested in the festival than the people who run it.
He says he first started watching films in his teens, watching movies like A Clockwork Orange and A Clockwork Red.
The two films had an impact on him, Katzanovic said.
I saw that they were able to make these movies, and I understood that they had a very strong community behind them.
I was also aware of the fact that I could see how this was a place that was very much a part of the community and that I was able to connect with a lot more people than I would have in any other part of my life.
So I just got into it.
I didn and still don’t have the answers to that question, Katzebsky said, but now that he’s an executive producer, he sees that Sundance can be a critical tool in the future for filmmaking.
He and his wife are now raising their kids in a new house, and he’s exploring a new role at the festival, starting as the director of its digital content.
But Katzen, who says he’s not surprised by what he’s seen in the last year, is still hopeful that the festival can continue to exist.
I think it’s a really exciting thing that people are really excited about, he told me.
And I think that’s going to be a real part of our future.
Katzman says the festival will continue to grow, and that he hopes it will one day be able to host a major international film festival.
That, he hopes, will allow filmmakers to get the funding they need for their films, and to create a community around their work.
“I think it will always be an important part of Sundances life,” he said.
And for the film world,
