destination: park city, utah

All right, good people. I'm off to spend the weekend in Park City, Utah. That's right—the Sundance Film Festival (and Slamdance too) is going on right now, and I'm joining in on the fun. It looks to be a good time of films, friends, parties and cold cold cold weather. This year, Asian American are representin' in full force: Asian Pacific Film Experience in Park City 2007. There are a number of events planned for the festival, including the annual Filmmakers Reception, the Asian Pacific American Filmmakers Lounge, and a panel discussion featuring Sung Kang (Finishing the Game), Yul Kwon (Survivor: Cook Islands), Grace Lee (American Zombie), Justin Lin (Finishing the Game), Suzy Nakamura (American Zombie), Dustin Nguyen (Finishing the Game), Janet Yang (Dark Matter, Year of the Fish).
