Dave Grohl of Nirvana-Foo Fighters, has turned a corner in his very illustrious music career. Grohl successfully submitted his film documentary, 'Sound City,' to the prestigious Sundance Film Festival. The festival was founded in 1978, in connection with Actor-Director, Robert Redford's company 'Wildwood.' Sundance features short films from around the globe.
The 2013 festival had 4,000 feature films submitted, and 119 were selected to be featured. The festival included films from 51 first-time filmmakers, from 32 countries. Grohl is included in the group, as a first-time director.
Jan. 27, during Grohl's recent BBC interview, Grohl talked about his passion for music, life and his gratefulness for his career success. Grohl said he enjoyed being a director, as a creative outlet, but music is his passion. In reflection, Grohl shared memories of former band mate, Nirvana front man, Kurt Cobain. Nirvana's debut album was recorded in Sound City studios.
According to the BBC, "Grohl credits the late Kurt Cobain, his former Nirvana band mate, as his inspiration." 'When Kurt died, I realized that every day should be celebrated in some way and we're so lucky to have what we have. No matter whether it's the worst day or the greatest day of your life, just to experience it is enough.'

The film will be made available for a global download on Feb. 1, 2013, to reach viewers outside of the movie theater areas. The DVD of the film will be released on March 12, 2013
