For 30 years, the Sundance Film Festival has been a wild ride for both filmmakers and festival-goers. A launch pad for seminal independent films, as well as for some of Hollywood's biggest movie stars, Sundance has always been about exposing films that come from a place of passion. Now, the Sundance Film Festival is going international with events in London and Hong Kong. Festival Director John Cooper (or "Coop" as he's known), and Director of Programming Trevor Groth talk about the festival's grown, films at this year's fest, and the new wave of American independent cinema.
