It's Sundance time again!

Park City's favorite local radio station, KPCW, is once again in the middle of all the glam, emotion and filmmaking of the 2016 Sundance Film Festival, running January 21 through 31. Once again, our veteran news team brings fresh interviews every morning with filmmakers, industry professionals and film festival muckety-mucks.

If the most ridiculous question during the film festival is, "Do you know who I am?" then the smartest counterpart comes from our team of interviewers.
