Robert Redford and George Lucas will take part in an inaugural roster of panel discussions called the Art of Film Weekend at the Sundance Film Festival.
The series, set to run during the final weekend of Sundance in Park City from Jan 29-31, will highlight the role of film-makers across the spectrum of collaborators and covers writers, directors, producers, actors, cinematographers, editors, production designers, art directors, costume designers, casting directors, sound designers and composers.
The series will kick off with Robert Redford and George Lucas discussing their careers and creative process with Leonard Maltin in Power Of Story: Visions Of Independence.
The weekend continues with panels on such topics as artistry in film music, virtual reality, visual design, editing and documentary.
“Exploring cinema, body and soul, Art Of Film Weekend will take aspiring film-makers and film-loving audiences behind the scenes to see the creative, collaborative spirit of artists at every stage of the independent filmmaking process that is so core to our festival,” said Sundance Film Festival director John Cooper.
Composer Harry Gregson-Williams will discuss his creative process in Art Of The Score: A Performance And Discussion featuring film excerpts and a live performance from electric violinist Hugh Marsh.
Other panels include A New Language in Filmmaking: Virtual Reality, Design Inspiration, Cutting Class: An Editor’s Guide To Storytelling and The Doc Art Mix Tape.
The Sundance Film Festival is set to run from January 22-February 1.
