Year five of the Nodance Film Festival kicks off in the now infamous mall on Main Street. Films and festivities takes place January 11th-18th, 2002 and the line-up is an eclectie one at that. Rounding out the competition documentaries is Dan Poole’s “The Making Of The Green Goblin’s Last Stand.” Film Threat readers may remember the amazing Dan Poole interview from last year detailing how his home-made, underground “Spider-Man” movie became a cult hit. The documentary about the film is even more enthralling and will make its premiere to Park City audiences soon. The list of films we received from Nodance festival chief Jim Boyd is preliminary, but should give you a taste of what you can expect at perhaps the best digital festival not only in Park City, but in the United States. Here’s the preliminary line-up:
