Michel Gondry Edits Our Home Page

YouTube Film

For many film lovers on YouTube, seeing Michel Gondry, the incredibly talented, award-winning filmmaker behind films like Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind and The Science of Sleep, be an active member of our community has been nothing short of amazing. (You've likely seen his Rubik's Cube video and "deblending" techniques.)

So who better to curate the home page during the 2008 Sundance Film Festival than Monsieur Gondry himself? A Sundance veteran, Gondry will head back to Park City, Utah, this year with his latest – and much
anticipated – film, Be Kind Rewind, starring Jack Black and Mos Def.

But, first, he'll program a festival of sorts right here on YouTube. His eclectic selection of picks is currently gracing our home page.
