Do critics still matter? Maybe the better question is, what factors contribute to their perceived relevance? What have blogging and "critic-proof" marketing changed? Do they still have the power to help films? And forgetting the box office for two seconds, what about the culture where films are received? So do critics still matter? Ask them. Owen Gleiberman (Entertainment Weekly), Mark Bell (Film Threat), Eugene Hernandez (IndieWire), Sean Means (Salt Lake Tribune). Scott Foundas (LA Weekly ) moderates.
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.
