Sundance Film Festival filmmakers are taking their craft and presenting it to Park City's teens.
For several years during the Sundance Film Festival, Park City High School has been an important stop for various filmmakers. Taking time from their busy schedules, directors, producers, screenwriters and publicists participate in the Filmmakers in the Classroom Program—which has been jointly coordinated by the Park City Performing Arts Foundation and Sundance Institute.
The program is meant to provide student-oriented presentations on how the film industry works and give students opportunities to discuss current issues that are often portrayed in films at Sundance.
"These films and filmmakers truly bring the world to the classroom," said Jaimie Atlas, PCPAF's student outreach coordinator. "The Sundance staff has done an excellent job of finding films and filmmakers that not only present unusual and fascinating topics to their audience, but also delve into the art of filmmaking."
The classroom presentations are not open to the public, and run through Jan. 25.
