Sundance Institute president and founder Robert Redford speaks during a press conference at the 2012 Sundance Film Festival in Park City, Utah.  The 2012 top Sundance prize winner, “Beasts of the Southern Wild,” picked up four Oscar nominations, including best picture, director for first-time filmmaker Benh Zeitlin and actress for 9-year-old Quvenzhane Wallis, who had never acted before. “That's why we're here,” Redford said. “When somebody comes out of nowhere and with our support goes somewhere, that's a real pleasure to me.”
