For John Cooper, new director of the Sundance Film Festival, it's all about moving into the future and maintaining tradition. Something old, something new... In addition to giving us the inside scoop on what's in store for Park City audiences this year (January 21-31), Cooper talks about the festival's selection process, the new ‘Next' category and what it's like to work with Robert Redford. He also gives us a preview of Sundance Film Festival USA, which will take eight films and their filmmakers on tour to eight US cities.
