What’s the most casual, intimate, stimulating, and surprising setting to have a conversation with the people behind the films of the 2011 Sundance Film Festival? Each morning at 10:00 a.m. at Filmmakers Lodge, Cinema Café Presented by Chase Sapphire gathers up a couple of interesting folks to chat about interesting things. The discussion opens up to audience questions so you can ask what’s been burning a hole in your mind since watching the film, reading the book, following that actor. You’ll laugh. You’ll cry. You’ll drink too much coffee.
Here’s this year’s lineup of Cinema Café participants. Oh and it’s FREE and open to the public as space permits–so get there early to grab a seat and morning yummies.
