Slamdance is the other film festival gearing up in Park City. Where Sundance, in some ways, has moved away from their indie roots Slamdance clings to the indie ideals and gives a platform to emerging film makers.
San Francisco will be front and center at this year's festival with a documentary submission, 'The Institute.' Spencer McCall, who fills his days teaching at San Francisco State University, attempts to the answer the question, what is the Jejune Institute? At first glance it is the home of a San Francisco-based alternate reality game. Once you join the 'Institute' the lines between gaming and reality become blurred. McCall focuses on the players experience, telling the story from their point of view.
Check back during the festival for a recap of an interview with Spencer McCall and a review of the film. If you have any questions for McCall feel free to email me or drop them into the comment section below.
