The buzz before Sundance 2007 seemed to indicate that the film content was going to be depressing and expectations for sales were low. This was very much in tune with the atmosphere where an unseasonable anti-cyclone squatted over the area a week before the Festival and remained there enveloping Salt Lake City in a yellow brown smog which worsened day by day. But in Park City itself, 3000 feet higher, the sun shone. Huge crowds were out to see some of the 125 dramatic and documentary feature length films chosen from 3,287 submissions or the 71 shorts selected from 4,445.
