In its 13th year, the Sundance ASCAP Music Cafe did not disappoint as the focal point for music at the festival. Showcasing exceptional talent of emerging and established artists, it was again the place independent filmmakers met and interacted with composers and songwriters to encourage collaboration. This year's program featured eight days of songwriters and composers associated with festival films along with other artists. The event was held from Jan. 21 to Jan. 28.
