Final Days, Final Parties

With the end-of-fest in everyone's sights, filmmakers got in their last few drinks and conversations across town. 

Always well repped at Sundance, the Texas filmmaking community assembled at a private home in Deer Valley, the same house where Lovers of Hate was set.  Cinetic's John Sloss and longtime friend and client Richard Linklater drank Lone Star beer and ate barbeque.  Sloss has had a busy festival, repping such films as the Banksy doc Exit Through the Gift Shop and Lisa Cholodenko's The Kids Are All Right, which sold to Focus.  "Everyone wanted it," said Sloss who is extremely happy with where it landed.

Later, at the hugely popular Late Night Lounge, Sundance director of programming Trevor Groth mourned the fest's final days with stunt coordinator Nash Edgerton (Hesher) and Boy director Taika Waititi

Meanwhile, on the dance floor, Satan entered the bodies of several revelers.
