Sundance to screen Linklater’s ‘Slacker’

'From the Collection' marks 20th anniversary of pic

The Sundance Institute has selected Richard Linklater’s “Slacker,” celebrating its 20th anniversary, as the fest’s From the Collection screening.

A newly struck print will screen during the Sundance Festival Jan. 24 at Park City’s Egyptian Theater. Linklater is expected to introduce the film and attend the Q&A, hosted by fest director John Cooper.

“In many ways ‘Slacker’ is the perfect Collection film,” Cooper said. “It launched a brilliant career, inspired an entire generation of filmmakers and paved the way for countless others. People don’t necessarily think about preservation for newer films, and we are working to change that.”

The Sundance Institute has worked with the UCLA Film and Television Archive since 1997 to create the Sundance Collection at UCLA to preserve and restore independent films.

It also announced Thursday a Collector’s Circle fund-raising effort, under which members making a $10,000 annual contribution will help the institute choose films to be added to the collection. The Sundance Collection at UCLA has grown to nearly 1,000 titles.
