Interviews with NEXT Contestants

We were excited to not only be a Leadership sponsor at Sundance 2012, but to also sponsor the NEXT category of films at the festival. NEXT films stretch limited resources to create impactful art and truly embody the spirit of independent filmmaking.

We got a chance to catch some of the talented directors and producers in the NEXT category during Sundance. Watch the video below to hear their thoughts on what it means to be a NEXT category filmmaker. Congratulations to all of the filmmakers for their nominations, and a special congratulations to the category winner, Mike Birbiglia, for “Sleepwalk with Me.
