Many Austin filmmakers, including Spark writer/director Annie Silverstein, are now making their way to Park City, UT, to screen their films at this year’s Sundance Film Festival or the rival Slamdance Film Festival. Spark is about a boy who must wait in his car while his father spends some alone time with his girlfriend. Bored and frustrated, the boy and the daughter of his father's girlfriend decide to let off some steam with a fistful of fireworks. Spark marks the first narrative work by the University of Texas student. It will screen Jan. 20 and Jan. 21 during the Slamdance Film Festival.
