Sundance Today: Swag Beats (Boots?) Snow

The Sundance Film Festival is about, as the name implies, films. But there’s another secret agenda at the heart of the Park City weeks-long event: swaaaag, man!

If you’ve been keeping up with the MTV Movies team’s escapades in our Sundance Today blogs, then you know that yours truly has been having some difficult time walking bootless through the snowy slush of Utah. That is no longer the case. I’ve got my Sorel-branded boots tied tight, some sunglasses from the lovely folks at Solstice Sunglass Boutique shielding my eyes, and a big dopey grin on my face.

You see movies at Sundance, and that is awesome. But when you get free high-end swag at Sundance, you know you’ve arrived. And folks, let me tell you: I have arrived.

Anyway, enough bragging — about swag, at least. There’s more movies, more actors, more filmmakers in our immediate future. Today, we’re going one-on-one with “John Dies at the End” actors Clancy Brown and Paul Giamatti, “Luv” actors Common, Charles S. Dutton and Michael K. Williams, “Parks & Rec” favorite (and “Safety Not Guaranteed” actress) Aubrey Plaza, “Red Hook Summer” director Spike Lee, and many more. If you’ve got questions for any of those guys, we want to hear ’em. Tweet them our way at @mtvmoviesblog and we’ll do our best to get you the scoops you crave.

In the mean time, if you need me, you can find me stomping all over Park City in my new Sorels. No. Big. Deal.

The 2012 Sundance Film Festival is officially under way, and the MTV Movies team is on the ground reporting on the hottest stars and the movies everyone will be talking about in the year to come. Keep it locked with MTV Movies for everything there is to know about Sundance.
