1998 Sundance Film Festival

The shape of the 1998 Sundance Film Festival changed considerably as the Festival headquarters moved from the center of town to the Shadow Ridge Lodge, and a new 1,300 seat theater, the Eccles, opened its doors. 1998 also saw the rise of the actor/director, as such figures as Timothy Hutton, Sara Gilbert, Vincent Gallo, Greg German and Saul Rubinek moved behind the camera. PI testified again to the power of imaginative filmmaking, and little Christina Ricci grew up with very adult performances in THE OPPOSITE OF SEX and BUFFALO 66. Piper-Heidsieck Tribute to Independent Vision was awarded to Frances McDormand.

As you use our Online Archives, please understand that the information presented from Festivals, Labs, and other activities is taken directly from official publications from each year. While this information is limited and doesn't necessarily represent the full list of participants (e.g. actors and crew), it is the list given to us by the main film/play/project contact at the time, based on the space restrictions of our publications. Each entry in the Online Archives is meant as a historical record of a particular film, play, or project at the time of its involvement with Sundance Institute. For this reason, we can only amend an entry if a name is misspelled, or if the entry does not correctly reflect the original publication.
