A BUZZFEED article by Robert Jardin titled, “Documentary I Am Gary Johnson Gets First-Look During 2018 Sundance Festival” claims that –
“This year’s Festival showcase (sic) 110 independent films from 29 countries and roughly 25 First-Look Premier Trailers scattered among venues up and down Park City’s busy Main Street proper. Among the coveted, First-Look Premier screenings, is politically charged documentary “I Am Gary Johnson”
This film is NOT a Sundance Film Festival film. See:
A similar announcement posted on the Cannabis Sativa inc page, states:
“This year the Festival highlights 110 films from 29 countries and roughly 20 independent First-Look events scattered among venues up and down Park City’s busy Main Street proper. Among the coveted events, “I Am Gary Johnson” . . . In addition to the preview, the celebrity infused, gourmet catered event, hosts a diverse panel of political luminaries including Larry Sharpe, New York Candidate for Governor, Nicholas Sarwark, Libertarian National Committee Chair, and Executive Director of the Freedom for America Super PAC R.J. Lyman. With other high-profile guest announcements coming later this week.”
A FACEBOOK invitation states:
“I Am Gary Johnson Director Brando Eaton is excited to Host the 2018 Sundance Film Festival First-Look at #IAGJ. . . . For Credential Information contact email@example.com”
Tickets to the event, which is being held Tuesday January 23rd in Park City, UT, are available for $100 each ($150 per couple) HERE. Proceeds support the Larry Sharpe for Governor campaign.
The words “Sundance Film” have been removed from an earlier version of this invitation, as has the location, which was initially identified as the MUSIC LODGE. The ticket price has also been lowered from $500 per person to $100.
Governor Romney’s office has not yet confirmed his attendance with IPR. LNC Chair Nick Sarwark confirmed his attendance. (19 JAN 2018 UPDATE: Nick has informed IPR that the panel discussion has been canceled, and he will not be attending.) Larry Sharpe confirmed his attendance stating:
“Join me, LNC Chairman Nicholas Sarwark, Governor Mitt Romney, Director Brando Eaton, R.J. Lyman, Daniel Thompson, Jenn Gray, and many more at the Sundance Film Festival for a VIP look behind the scenes at the most successful Libertarian presidential campaign in history.
