NEW CASTLE — ABC News has released a video recapping the Sundance Film Festival. The clip includes highlights from the festival.

Also, film critic Peter Travers discusses the big winners at the festival, including "Fruitvale", which won BOTH the U.S. Grand Jury Prize for dramatic film and the Audience Award for dramatic film. I can't wait to see "Fruitvale."

For the Sundance recap, CLICK HERE.

The Cleveland International Film Festival will recognize Kurt Kuenne with its Director's Spotlight Award. In 2001, he released the documentary, "Drive-In Movie Memories," which is of personal interest to me. If you also love the drive-in, check out the trailer to this documentary and consider viewing the full film at the festival in April.

For “Drive-In Movie Memories,” CLICK HERE.

Paramount Pictures celebrated its 100th anniversary in 2012. Did you know it offers studio tours? I would love to tour Paramount!

The 85th annual Academy Awards will take place on Feb. 24. Barbra Streisand will perform at the ceremony for the first time in 36 years! Many of the nominees are similar to the Golden Globes. Check out the list.
