Every January, tired film critics, hungry filmmakers and dedicated film fans all make the trek to one of Utah's sleepiest little ski towns for the chance to review, sell and watch dozens of new films, filling up tiny Park City with a swollen population desperate to catch the next big thing. In existence for less than 30 years (the fest first opened its doors in 1985), the Sundance Film Festival has risen to prominence as America's premier film festival. After all, who wouldn't love a festival that has offered both "An Education" and "Hustle and Flow," or "The Blair Witch Project" and "Thirteen," or even (bogglingly enough) both "The Brave Little Toaster" and "House Party"?
