Tiffany & Co. bags lined the chairs at the Sundance Institute’s 3rd annual L.A. fundraiser, at The Lot on Wednesday. Independent film was the theme and the object was to raise funds for Robert Redford’s Utah-based Institute and its year-round artist-support programs.
Robert Redford presented the Vanguard Leadership Award in Memoriam to beloved journalist and film critic Roger Ebert, who passed away in April 2013, in recognition of his lifetime advocacy of independent cinema. His wife, Chaz Ebert, was there to accept.
Who: 2013 Celebration Host Committee, Sundance Institute Board of Trustees, and Alumni Advisory Board. Also Kerry Washington, writer Drake Doremus (Like Crazy), Rory Kennedy, Jason Reitman, Homeira Goldstein, Norman Lear & Lyn Lear, Moby, Dermot Mulroney, and Shiva Rose McDermott (who has no relation to Dermot Mulroney).
