ROBERT REDFORD IN TALKS TO BRING SUNDANCE TO NEW YORK

Friday, January 11, 2013 - Robert Redford is poised to take on Robert De Niro 's annual New York City film festival by bringing his own Sundance event to the Big Apple.

The Hollywood veteran wants to expand his independent movie showcase, which is held annually in Park City, Utah, to the Brooklyn area, reports New York Post gossip column Page Six.

According to the publication, Redford is in talks to launch a "large-scale New York festival" which would rival the city's yearly Tribeca Film Festival, which De Niro co-founded in 2002 with producer Jane Rosenthal.

A Sundance spokesperson says, "We continue to seek new programmatic opportunities in regions across the country and internationally."

The 2013 Sundance Film Festival will kick off in Utah next Thursday (17Jan13), and will feature movies from Hollywood stars Daniel Radcliffe, Matthew McConaughey, Reese Witherspoon and Amanda Seyfried.
