INDEPENDENT'S DAY gets behind the scenes at Sundance Slam dance and even the Slum dance film festivals in Park City Utah to reveal the amusing and engaging stories of the maverick filmmakers who launched their careers there.

Steven Soderbergh (sex lies and videotape) Tom DiCillo (Living in Oblivion) Greg Mottola (The Day trippers) and Neil LaBute (In the Company of Men) are just a few of the filmmakers who speak candidly about the Cinderalla story that is Sundance as well as the darker realities of independent filmmaking.
