Rivalry with Robert De Niro

I've saved the strongest argument here for last. Because, if you think about it, creating some kind of feud between Sundance and De Niro's pet project, the Tribeca Film Festival, makes total sense. Not only would it generate tons of extra publicity for both projects (and thus, maybe some for up and coming filmmakers), but it would pull Bobby (as we New York insiders call him) out of his old-age comfort zone and into a real, balls-out public battle. The man has been reduced to text-fighting with Jay-Z. Give him — and us — something to truly care about, Sundance.
