Every year movie (and party) lovers from all over the world flock to Park City, Utah for the Sundance Film Festival. It's the world's largest independent film festival and includes 10 days of non-stop films, celebrities, parties, mingling, and networking. And Talent Resources has certainly returned to Sundance 2012 with a bang! Their gifting suites have been jam-packed with celebrities swooping up gifts from sponsors such as Rachel Roy, Sean John, Cream of Wheat, The Teaologist, DL1961 Premium Denim, Prasad Medical Skincare, and more!
Everyone from William H. Macy to Mary J. Blige has shown up to get their hands on free goodies. But it wasn't all about receiving; celebs also gave back by signing custom silver Cream of Wheat thermoses that are to be donated to the Ronald McDonald House charity.
To be with Elizabeth Olsen is to be at once starstruck and nostalgic. Her face, strikingly similar to billionaire sisters Mary Kate and Ashley, brings to mind so many memories of "Full House" episodes and "Brother For Sale" singalongs.
But for someone who has barely arrived on the big screen, she carries herself...well, like a movie star. The easy smile, the gentle complexion, and the trademark Olsen figure (slender, though at 5-foot-seven she towers over her sisters) give her an air of glamor beyond her 22 years.

The mastermind behind showcasing their times and trials, Michael Rapaport, has over twenty years of notable film credit, which include True Romance and Mighty Aphrodite, along with appearances in the TV programs My Name Is Earl, Prison Break and Friends.

A new The Doors documentary has been sweeping the film festivals and leaving people speechless, including the remaining members of The Doors. What continues to impress the satisfied viewers is that When You're Strange: A Flim About the Doors uses only original footage, shot between 1966 and 1971. Ray Manzarek commented on the footage by saying, "You know who plays Jim in this movie? Jim."
When it comes to Spike Jonze, how else can you describe the man but other than original? His resume touches on all aspects of creativity with directing music videos, (Beastie Boys - Sabotage and Bjork) unbelievable feature films like Being John Malkovich, Adaptation, and creating the MTV show Jackass (and staring in it at times).
Recently Jonze completed a short film with Kanye West titled We Were Once a Fairytale. This was Jonze's second time working with Kanye after he co-directed the video Flashing Lights.
