Sundance: Film fans invited to “Life In a Day” world premiere
By Sean O’Connell
Hollywoodnews.com: The most exciting aspect of this year’s Sundance Film Festival – aside from Kevin Smith’s self-generated publicity circus — has been the innovative initiatives made to bring Park City, Utah to the four corners of film nation.
Even those who were unable to travel to Sundance this year have been able to access such films as Gregg Araki’s “Kaboom” via On Demand. And now, film fans are getting ready to witness the world premiere of another project at Sundance via the magic of the World Wide Web.
“Life In a Day,” the film that was produced by Ridley Scott, directed by Kevin Macdonald, and created with the help of thousands of YouTube users across the world, will premiere Thursday, Jan. 27 as part of the Sundance Film Festival, and everyone is invited to attend. The evening – from the red carpet arrivals to the feature film and the interactive Q&A — will all be streamed live on YouTube.
Here are the details, courtesy of a press release:
World premiere of “Life in a Day,” Thursday, January 27 8:15 p.m. ET/6:15p.m. MT/5:15 p.m. PT

“Life in a Day” is a user-generated feature-length documentary film, shot on a single day, July 24, 2010. Supported by YouTube, it enlisted the global community to capture a moment of their lives on camera. “Life in a Day” brings together the most compelling footage into a 90-minute film, crafted by Macdonald, Executive Producer Ridley Scott and their team, to offer a unique experience that shows, in beautiful and, at moments, harrowing honesty, what it is like to be alive on Earth today.
See you, and “Life,” online.
