Toronto filmmakers to hit Sundance festival
TORONTO - Three hours of writing the film, three days to put it together and $200 to produce -- that was the ticket for two Toronto filmmakers, who will be headed to the Sundance Film Festival in Park City, Utah.
Jason Gossbee and Ben Goldenberg won second prize in the YouTube Project:Direct contest with their five-minute-long short film "White Collar Criminals."
Not only will they be going to Sundance next week, but the swag bags full of goodies for Hollywood's heavy hitters will also contain a DVD copy of the film.
Gossbee and Goldenberg will also split a $2,500 cash prize.
YouTube has set up a page devoted to "White Collar Criminals," which has been viewed by more than 157,000 people, while fans are flooding the two filmmakers with e-mails asking when they'll post their next movie.
This year's Sundance Film Festival runs from January 15th to the 25th.
