Great article from Eugene Hernandez at indieWIRE today for all those filmmakers who are positively giddy about getting into Sundance (or tearing their hair out because they didn't).

Perhaps the most important statement is about the lack of deals expected:
So, let's be upfront... To those who are hoping to make a sale after your Sundance premiere, it's important to know that most folks I've spoken with agree that this year's market in Park City will be like no other in that it probably won't be as robust for big on-site acquisitions. Larger companies seem to be shying away from theatrical acquisitions and right now there are simply fewer large, established distribution entities to turn to.

It's going to be an interesting Festival, that's for sure.
