Sundance

The movie will premiere at Sundance Film Festival, which will be a mostly digital event this year:
https://www.sltrib.com/artsliving/2020/ ... ure-films/
The Sundance Institute announced Tuesday the titles of the 72 feature films that will screen at the festival Jan. 28-Feb. 3. That’s fewer than the 120 or so feature films that debut in Park City every January — as concerns over the COVID-19 pandemic prompted Jackson and her team to repurpose the usual 11-day in-person festival into seven days of screenings, mostly online.
Premiering on Sundance makes the odds better that I will get to see this, and it seems like a really interesting and intense movie.

:woot :wheee :hands

FEATURE: MASS
https://fpg.festival.sundance.org/film- ... 2e175decfb
Imagine the most dreaded, tense, and emotionally draining interaction you could find yourself in and multiply it by 10. That is exactly what two sets of parents—Richard (Reed Birney), Linda (Ann Dowd), Jay (Jason Isaacs), and Gail (Martha Plimpton)—are facing. Years after a tragedy caused by Richard and Linda’s son tore all their lives apart, Jay and Gail are finally ready to talk in an attempt to move forward.

In his impressive screenwriting and directorial debut, acclaimed actor Fran Kranz ponders ways in which people process grief, look for answers, and find the strength to persevere. Kranz uses the formal confines of this chamber piece to his advantage, creating tension and ambience filled with awkwardness from the outset. Much of this film’s emotional impact lies in its rigor, impeccable direction, and stunning performances from all members of the cast. Mass is a thoughtful, beautifully executed ode to humanity—in all its flawed and messy glory.

PREMIERE
JAN. 30 - 3:00PM

SECOND SCREENING
FEB. 1 - 10:00AM

If you want to watch the premiere, register online. Put the screening on 'My Schedule'. You will be given a PIN to watch on your Apple TV,etc.

But..it looks like if you want to also attend the Premiere with the Live Q&A with the cast, you may have to buy a ticket. It is $15 for a single movie and it will go on sale on Jan 7.

Thanks for the info, Char. Are the times you listed Eastern Daylight Savings?

I signed up. I hope I get to buy the single ticket to view Mass. Not holding out any hope with my slow computer. But. I will try.

If there's a Q&A afterwards, do we need Zoom to participate?

Don't think so. It is a 3 hr program which should include the Q&A

Ask the filmmakers and talent questions at the live Q&A.

Not sure how they are going to make it interactive yet.
