Wednesday, January 29th, 2014
For the 7th year in a row, @SundanceFest hosted a different Guest Tweeter each day during the first weekend of the Festival. Check out some highlights below and all of their Tweets via Storify:
Rose McGowanwas born in Italy and raised on a steady diet of pasta, European cinema, and classic films. Realizing that her passion lies in filmmaking has been a transformative experience for today's Guest Tweeter, who makes her directorial debut with the short film "Dawn."
Jenny Slate kept us engaged on- and off-screen at this year’s Festival with appearances in the short film Catherine and the NEXT film Obvious Child, while also taking the reigns as today’s Guest Tweeter!
The subject of To Be Takei, Guest Tweeter George Takei proves why his presence in popular culture, from his iconic role as Hikaru Sulu on Star Trek to his public advocacy of marriage equality, remains as fresh and necessary as ever.
