Wednesday was Volunteer Appreciation Day at the 2013 Sundance Film Festival -- a day to pay tribute to the army of 1,800 red-vested souls without whom the festival could not function.
Part of that appreciation was a four-minute film, "Heroes Don't Wear Capes," that played before each of the day's screenings.
In the film, three celebrities are each suffering crises during the festival: Alan Cumming can't find his glasses, Rachel Dratch can't find the perfect hat for her red-carpet look, and Edward Burns is grousing that his credentials don't properly identify his many talents. Each of them calls the same person: Fashion designer Kenneth Cole. Cole, in turn, calls in his secret weapon -- a Sundance volunteer.
The volunteer is played by actor Derek Walters, who was the star of last year's Volunteer Appreciation Day video.
The short is directed by Sundance veterans Ricki Stern and Annie Sundberg ("Joan Rivers: A Piece of Work"), and supported by Cole (whose name graces the back of those red vests)..
