Jan A.P. Kaczmarek was a guest of this year's edition of the Sundance Film Festival in Park City, UT. The Festival, organized by Sundance Institute and founded by Robert Redford, is one of the most important events of American independent cinema. It's worth noting that Sundance Institute has been collaborating with a few of Jan's most notable Polish initiatives for the past few years: Rozbitek Institute, which conducts educational projects for young and gifted screenplay writers, film music composers and directors, as well as the more and more prestigious TRANSATLANTYK International Film and Music Festival, held in Poznan.
The Polish Oscar®-winning composer was invited to take part in the discussion panel „Power of Story: Measure for Measure". He was accompanied by two other distinguished film music composers: Terence Blanchard and Mark Isham. The panel was moderated by Chris Douridas of the KCRW, three-times nominated to Grammy. They discussed the exceptional role of music in a well constructed film story. The guests presented their own experience and views on the subject.
