Despite there remaining a few more reviews to come in, and an interview or video still pending, it’s time to hand in our final Sundance 2007 coverage. If you follow a link and the review doesn’t appear, don’t worry, it will within the next day or two. If it’s not listed at this point, we didn’t see it. But before we get there, I’d like to take this time to say thank you to all the Film Threat writers who came on and rocked the house this year. We couldn’t have done any of this without you:
Sally Foster – You tackled as many films as you could before sickness intervened, so thank you.
Chris Gore – You’re the man who made all this FT nonsense possible, so we’re forever indebted to you.
Zack Haddad – Rookie showed he’s got the passion and power to survive the roughest festival experience we’ll face this year, so we’re taking suggestions for new nicknames since “Rookie” doesn’t apply anymore.
Phil Hall – You weren’t in PC, but you covered many of the online shorts, making sure the Film Threat love extended to all manner of filmmaking, as it should.
Don Lewis – Thank you for being on top of the distribution deals for what turned out to be one of the most frenzied deal-making festivals I’ve ever been a part of. You brought the coverage full circle, my friend.
Jeremy Mathews – You rocked the festival before it even got started, and managed to keep up the intensity and flick watching throughout. You’re an MVP, thank you for all the coverage.
Jamie Tipps – I know the workload was surprising, but you handled it with class and covered some of the best (and worst, sadly) of the festival.
Felix Vasquez Jr. – Teamed with Phil for the online shorts, you kept up daily as if you were in PC with the rest of us and if the shorts filmmakers aren’t singing your praises, they very damn well should be.
Pete Vonder Haar – What festival goes by without a taste of Vonder Threat? Thanks for the editorial back-up and for handling those extra films that wound up being the difference between us watching 4 films a day rather than 5 films.

CHRIS GORE’S 2007 SUNDANCE COVERAGE FOR G4
Chris Gore saw films, interviewed filmmakers and wore an awesome hat during his Sundance 2007 coverage for G4’s Attack of the Show
Not quite feature stories, this is the place to go for the candid feelings of the Film Threat writers as they experienced Sundance 2007.
1st Day of Sundance Down
Sundance REALLY starts today…
Something I’ve noticed…
Crispin Glover’s sequel to “What Is It?” made me faint…
I dislike Nick Cannon even more now
I thought Sundays were supposed to be days of rest…
Another day done…and Matisyahu
Wherein the Yarrow continues to own my soul…
Three days ’til the END!!!
Rookie vents, and it’s all good…
Running on empty…
Wasting away on the thin ice of the parking lot of the Marriott…
My first big trip has come and gone.
There you go, if this doesn’t whet your appetite for all things Sundance 2007, I can’t help you anymore. Thank you to all the readers that make this work and coverage worth it, and thank you to all the filmmakers that keep making films. Keep pushing the envelope, keep making the good s**t and we’ll be there to cheer you on!
