Adobe will be at the Sundance Film Festival again this year in support of emerging independent filmmakers and great new cinema.
Adobe will present a special filmmakers panel Friday, January 17th from 3-4:30pm MST at the New Frontiers Microcinema: Engaging Story, Brilliant Visuals, Low Budget – the changing face of independent film. Presenters on the panel include filmmakers Kyle Alvarez, HaZ Dullul, and Jim Mickle. This event will be available as a live webcast for anyone around the world who wants to learn more about how emerging filmmakers are making higher quality films on small, or even micro-budgets.
During the festival, the Adobe Creative Cloud products can be seen at the HP booth at Sundance House. There student filmmakers will be hard at work on short films using the Creative Cloud video applications on HP workstations. Visitors can try out the Creative Cloud tools themselves, including Adobe Premiere Pro CC and After Effects CC on demo machines, and artist and animator Dustin Grella will present a Sundance Animation Hotline using crowd-sourced voicemail messages and Adobe Creative Cloud to create unique interpretive animations.
Throughout the Sundance Film Festival, Meagan Keane and the Adobe TV crew will be covering events and interviewing filmmakers. You can view these videos on the Sundance channel on Adobe TV .
More information about Adobe’s Sundance Film Festival activities and information on Creative Cloud for filmmakers can be found on the Adobe at Sundance Film Festival mobile app . You can also enter to win a free HP ZBook 15” mobile workstation with a DreamColor display and Thunderbolt™ and a one-year Adobe Creative Cloud membership.
Creative Cloud offers a complete creative toolset with regular updates for a low monthly membership. Increasing numbers of filmmakers are relying on Creative Cloud for cost-effective production applications – as well as other creative tools to present and promote their work. We are excited that the majority of films at the 2014 Sundance Film Festival used Adobe software for part or all of their post-production work (133 out of the 187 accepted films). Adobe congratulates all the Sundance 2014 filmmakers!

The changing face of independent film
With today’s technologies, low budget no longer means low-quality for independent filmmakers. On January 17, 2014 Adobe will present a special panel discussion at the 2014 Sundance Film Festival where filmmakers will discuss their work, their workflows and why they believe that awe-inspiring storytelling and high production value are possible, on modest, or even micro budgets.
The panel will feature Jim Mickle, Kyle Alvarez, and HaZ Dulull. Director Jim Mickle has been earning critical acclaim for his gothic horror film We Are What We Are, which screened at Sundance in 2013 before seeing theatrical release. Writer and director Kyle Alvarez premiered his second feature at Sundance 2013. C.O.G. was released in theaters in September. Visual effects artist and director Hasraf ‘HaZ’ Dulull earned acclaim with his sci-fi short Project Kronos and now has a Hollywood feature film project in development.
