The Sundance Film Festival mattered a great deal for 26 or 27 years, which is a long time when you think about how Robert Redford, Jeff Gilmore and John Cooper spearheaded the mythology of indie Hollywood and changed the game so much between the early '90s and the mid teens, and how influential it all was. Nobody can take away those glory years. I was there for 25 or 26 of them ('94 to '19, something like that) and I loved every chapter, every surprise, every breakthrough, every film that made a mark, every adventure and wild party. It's all over now, but that's the way of things. Sooner or later, every good idea or initiative or inspirational course of action comes to an end.
