Sound City the movie directed by Dave Grohl was originally planned to premiere at Sundance Film Festival 2013.

Sundance Film Festival receives over 10,000 submissions each year and does not have to prove ( based upon a statement made in court this year) it has to actually watch the 10,000 film submissions. Yet they continue to take revenue estimated at millions of dollars from up-coming filmmakers with dreams and aspirations in becoming selected and discovered.

Dave leaned through a youtube video in fact that, Sundance's mission for "discovering independent films" has been questionable as is their procedures and submission process, much of it exposed most recently through the internet.

A fan blog site with a " Sound City" petition is being posted for now, as Dave will decide whether or not to submit to those who pull the strings and keep the film at Sundance, or to remove it as a simple gesture for other filmmakers and artists who are being taken advantage of.

We all hope Dave will stand up for what is right.

This video explains is all very perfectly.

Ugh. You've been trying to flog this pitiful excuse for a "petition" everywhere you can, going so far as to make up accounts to sign your own petition (Johnny Depp? David Gilmour? Please). Dave submitted his film through the proper channels as did everyone else. If you have a beef with Sundance, take it up with them. Or go tell someone who gives a crap.

There a point there.

Sundance should at least disclose that it's more like a lottery, less like a competition.
