Every year, the annual invasion of Hollywood to Park City leaves behind memories of red-carpet moments and eye-popping scenes that make us forget the exhausting schedule, the January weather, and the endless lines. Here’s a collection of memories from the 2013 version of the festival.

When » Pre-festival interview on Jan. 13

Where » Interview conducted in Tribune newsroom

What happened » Neil Drumming was talking about his Slamdance film “Big Words.” “I’ve been to Park City several times, initially as a journalist covering the festivals for Entertainment Weekly and later simply as a fan,” he said. “I have fond memories of popping Airbornes, chugging a Red Bull and trying to squeeze six movies into one day. I remember seeing ‘Half Nelson,’ being completely blown away and then having the pleasure of interviewing Ryan Fleck and Anna Boden, two brilliant filmmakers. I remember running into Lee Daniels randomly on Main Street and him urging me to go see his movie, ‘Push’ aka ‘Precious.’ When we finally got into the second screening, it was packed with people who had caught the buzz as well.

Where » ChefDance dining room

What happened » Before the 300 dinner guests arrived, I sat down with co-founders Kenny Griswold and Mimi Kim to talk about the 10th anniversary of ChefDance. After our chat, I was able to get a close-up look at the works of iconic photographer Norman Seeff hung throughout the basement dining room. If you don’t know Seeff’s name, you’ll definitely know his most famous work: the black-and-white photo of Apple co-founder Steve Jobs. Seeff loaned Griswold 20 of his most memorable images for the event, including portraits of Ray Charles, Whitney Houston, John Belushi, Johnny Cash, Cher and Mick Jagger. I know ChefDance is supposed to be about the food — and I really did love the white chocolate bread pudding that night — but these photographs were the night’s biggest treat.
