Redford founded the Sundance Film Festival in 1982, and it has since grown into one of the nation's largest and premier film festivals.
The festival has also been the target of criticism, including earlier this year when the conservative think tank Sutherland Institute called for Utah to sever its ties with Sundance due to the adult content of films that screen there.
During a news conference on the opening day of the 2013 Sundance Film Festival, Redford responded to the Sutherland Institute's statement by saying it is up to individuals to decide what films they do and do not see.
"Sometimes the narrowest mind barks the loudest, and we've, over time, just come to ignore it," Redford said at the time.
On Saturday, Herbert echoed that sentiment, saying that while he does have concerns about the content of today's entertainment options, it is up to him to select which films to view and take his children and grandchildren to see.
"That’s what we need to do as parents," he said. "We need to, in fact, make sure that we make correct and good choices."
