Cinevegas 2004 Movie Review (3758 words)
While CineVegas is smaller in scale than Sundance, it is no less grand in terms of quality.
In fact, CineVegas is still young, but it’s attracted some major movie talent including new chairman Dennis Hopper (he received an award a couple of years back and instantly fell in love with the fest).
I must confess that I wasn't familiar with this film (it was quite good), but it sure was a thrill to listen to veteran actor Dean Stockwell (he was on hand to receive an award) discuss the making of the movie and give insight into his lengthy film career.
Serious Cinema in Sin City: CineVegas Raises Its Profile (1537 words)
CineVegas 2004, based at the Palms Casino and Resort, was described by one attendee as "Cannes on Viagra." Photo by Wendy Mitchell/indieWIRE.
In town for CineVegas 2004 honors were Jack Nicholson, Sean Penn, Robin Wright Penn, Holly Hunter, David Lynch, Julian Schnabel, Dean Stockwell, writer James Ellroy, and experimental legend Bruce Conner.
Several filmmakers also told me that they had some distributor interest during or after CineVegas, and were happy to see so many influential indie film buyers in attendance.
