    Keep things in perspective. I'm not artistic at all, but I can appreciate that Redford puts on a festival where those that are new in the artistic industry and don't have mega bucks can showcase their skills. It's kind of like American Idol if you think about it. What's wrong with that? I think it's great that Utah has this and I really don't think politics has a place in this conversation.

    Dear Andre - I disagree. I think many of the films are great. Have you viewed the whole program to know what is or is not "watchable"? If you mean the films aren't like "The Mummy," then you are right. I would love a list of films you consider great.

    I've never listened to Rush, or Shawn or the others. But still, you miss the point. Of course we cannot all go to Haiti. But many people do what they can. Our point is that we are tired of ego-maniacs and now, I guess those who defend them.

    Try to understand what is said before you jump to critize those saying it. Or can only liberals have an oppinion?

  • gO to.blank yeah Go to HAITI

    "Go to Haiti " comments. Wonder how many of you guys will be going to Haiti ? Very few I would wager. Might interfere with listening to Rush, Sean, Glenn and the others that do your thinking for you . Odd how all those "liberals " in California seem to elect Ronald Reagan , SI Hiakawa, Pete Wilson etc etc . Typical Utah Conservative yap . Big on yap . Little in the brain dept.

  • Either way dont like the place

    Stay home & Dont Go
    to any of the programs or shows That Utah Offers..

  • Who Cares?

    Stars? Real stars are real people who do real good. These are a bunch inflated egos. Yes, bring your money and improve our economy, but please do not elevate yourselves above those who do real good in the world.

    If you want to applaud someone, give a hand to all of the volunteers who are in Haiti helping.

  • your comments are Boring..

    Is there anyone who really cares if a bunch of spoiled ego freaks come to Utah and pretend they are real! Redford is the biggest hypocrite and joke of them all. I can't believe that with all that is going on in the world right now, that the media would give this bunch time or space at all.

  • geeezzDoesnt ever Go to shows
    Jan. 18, 2010 1:22 p.m.

    Maybe YOU should be in Haiti lending a hand of sort instead of making a fool of yourself trying to sound like your idol, Rush Limbaugh on these blogs.

  • Why?
    Jan. 18, 2010 12:36 p.m.

    do we want celebrities to come here? This is a conservative state. Celebrities are liberal, why not go to liberal states? We certainly dont share the same sentiments. I, find it strange that liberals seem to frequent conservative states while pressing their liberals views upon us. I am completely fine with segregating liberals and conservatives alike. Pile the liberals all in California, they can have that state, and us conservatives stay here in Utah. agree?

  • who cares what is said..

    I find many if not most “stars” (horrible choice of adjectives) pathetic and would not spend .10 cents to support their craft. Stay home! Could careless also for Sundance Film Festival.

  • yes sir..A lot who Live there
    Jan. 18, 2010 10:22 a.m.

    Or those that are some way Affiliated...

    Gotta love their environmental hypocrisy. Their "big" homes and flying in their jets waste and pollute more resources than their measly efforts in driving their "green" hybrids.

    An indy film festival sounds great, but it turns out there is a reason most of these guys are independents and don't have studio contracts: all but 2 or 3 of the films are unwatchable. They really stink. It's putting a camera in the hands of recent film school graduates with no real world experience, skewed values, limited perspective and no stories to tell.

    Way to try to big note yourself while at the same time you little note the state. How would you know how celebrities view Utah?

    The Sundance Film Festival is nice, but not a significant "star" event. Celebrities look at Utah more as a novelty rather than a great destination...

    I thought Utah was being boycott because of Prop 18? Where is their conviction?

    Maybe all the Stars coming to Sundance Film Festival could go to Haiti instead. Maybe they could walk from the airport to the city. Maybe that way, the crush of Hollywood star worshipers who would be following them could clear a path for water, food and medical teams to get through.

    Redford is the man! Makes me proud to be a Utahn--a true artist and talent.
