(Leah Hogsten | The Salt Lake Tribune) Robert Redfor thanks the crowd for the tribute. For all his contributions to the state of Utah, Robert Redford was recognized and honored by Governor Gary Herbert at a gala in his honor, "The Governor's Salute to Robert Redford: A Utah Tribute to an American Icon" at the Grand America Hotel, Saturday, November 9, 2013. Redford is an actor, director, producer, philanthropist, businessman, environmentalist, and founder of the Sundance Resort, the Sundance catalog, and the Sundance Institute which hosts the Sundance Film Festival.
Robert Redford among Time’s ‘100 Most Influential People’

Robert Redford has been named as one of 2014’s "100 Most Influential People" in the new issue of Time magazine.

Redford, writes movie mogul Harvey Weinstein, "created a utopia in the middle of conservative Utah for successful filmmakers to interact with young filmmakers, and thus Sundance — the laboratory and festival — was born."

Weinstein also praises Redford’s acting ability, his long-running battle of practical jokes with his late friend Paul Newman, and the fact that when Redford and Weinstein go to lunch, "Bob always gets away without paying the bill."
