Sony Pictures Classics' Tom Bernard on the History of Sundance

Sony Pictures Classics co-president and co-founder Tom Bernard remembers when the Sundance Film Festival was just an idea at a meeting.

According to Bernard, who attended his first Sundance Film Festival in 1985, a gathering of “futuristic characters,” including Robert Redford, met to find a way to help people make films, thus laying the groundwork for the festival that it is today.

“Back then, all these people wanted to have a story to tell, and they had lots of money, but they had no idea how to make the movies.” he said.

What followed was movie camp, a gathering of top cinematographers and actors, and the festival grew from there.
