Barclay Butera Debuts Annual ‘Independent Party’ at the Sundance Film Festival; Egyptian Theatre Co. is ’05 Beneficiary and Co-Sponsors Include New Independent Film Website indieIN.com

January 13, 2005

Renowned Hollywood interior designer and retailer Barclay Butera, ASID - whose clients include Sharon Stone, Chris O’Donnell, and Renee Zellwegger - and who owns a showroom and home in Park City, is proud to launch an annual event during – but independent from - the Sundance Film Festival. Dubbed The Independent Party, it is a ‘thank you’ to the residents of the area for their patronage as well as an alternative party for Sundance attendees. This benefit is presented by The Barclay Butera Foundation, established to benefit a variety of community-based philanthropies. The event is Sat., January 22, 7-10pm at the Barclay Butera showroom, 255 Heber Ave. (across from the Sundance Main Ticketing Center) in Park City. (RSVP: 323-932-0800/outside of UT, 435-649-9371/UT.) (www.barclaybutera.com)

This inaugural year’s beneficiary is the Egyptian Theatre Company (ETC). The Egyptian Theatre, named so in 1926 for its new exotic Egyptian décor (very popular at the time), has featured films and live theatre ever since and continues to be a regular Sundance Film Festival venue.

“I believe it is important for businesses to give back to their communities,” says Butera. “I enjoy Park City, its people and its arts scene throughout the year. And my hope is that by hosting this event during Sundance, the exposure for ETC will, of course, be wonderful locally, but will increase the out-of-town awareness for the theatre.”

The party’s co-sponsor is artist/actor Aaron Foster. His New York Times-acclaimed folk art based on vintage license plates is carried by Butera, who consistently discovers and promotes artists with a certain edge and artistry that compliments his design vision. Foster has appeared on ABC’s “Extreme Makeover: The Home Edition” and will host a soon-to-be-announced home design show.

Continuing the ‘independent’ theme, Mr. Butera invited indieIN.com to participate. indieIN.com is a new online marketing strategy destined to change the face of the independent film industry by increasing the audience for independent film through awareness, community building and strategic partnerships. The site will increase the accessibility to independent films playing around the country by providing effective and affordable marketing and advertising for filmmakers and distributors; building a community of filmmakers and filmgoers eager to connect with others; and obtaining invaluable market research about who, why and where people go to see independent films. indieIN.com launches this month and computers will be on-hand at the party to peruse the site.

Finally, Modern Luxury’s Angeleno and Absolut Vodka are proud co-sponsors.

Barclay Butera, Inc. (BBI), Butera’s 12-year old corporation, is based in Newport Beach, CA, and entails the Barclay Butera retail/to-the-trade showrooms in Newport Beach and Los Angeles, CA, and Park City, UT. Barclay Butera Home, Inc. (BBH) is home to both the Barclay Butera Home line which is distributed in over 300 retailers nationwide, and to Barclay Butera Home wholesale showrooms. Butera designs and manufactures his products in Los Angeles, CA.
