My 16th Sundance and I still get anxious

Every year I head to Park City for the Sundance Film Festival. It’s my favorite festival in the world and this is my 16th year.

I always feel anxious beforehand. Maybe because it’s such a cool crowd and there are movies that take your breath away? Maybe because every year without fail something magical happens? I don’t know? There’s just no reason for it.

My first time at Sundance was as a filmmaker with our award-winning film, Bit Players and a year later we were back in Park City with, Outpatient which won Best Picture at Slamdance. Now that I’m the CEO and Co-Founder of our streaming service, IndieFlix, I’ve sponsored the Film Festival Summit with the Ford Foundation, hosted parties with IndieGoGo, had celebrity encounters funny enough for a book and participated on numerous panels too many to count. So why do I get such anxiety? And no its not excitement. I know the difference.

I’ve thought about this for a long time and now I’m making a movie about it and this trip is going to be different for me.

We’re starting production on our new film Angst, a peer-to-peer documentary with stories and experts we believe will help us break the stigma around anxiety. We start filming Monday here in Utah and It comes out in May. My very clever and talented friend, Matt Skerritt is directing. This is going to be a global conversation about anxiety because we believe everyone on the planet has had some kind of touch point with anxiety.

Well, the flight attendant has signaled for me to close my laptop and put my tray table up. It’s time to land. I need to shake off the anxiety because its going to be a great festival just like every other year! #sundance17
