Former Vice President Al Gore said that while he wouldn't divulge specifics about his December conversation with Donald Trump, it wasn't “the last conversation.” Speaking to a packed auditorium in Park City following the premiere of the climate change documentary “An Inconvenient Sequel: Truth to Power,'' which kicked off the 33rd Sundance Film Festival Thursday, Gore said that he's seen a lot of people who started out as climate deniers change over time. “Whether he will or not remains to be seen,” Gore said of Trump, whose inauguration as president was Friday. Trump has decried climate change as a hoax. Gore also noted that “two days after that meeting he appointed someone to the EPA who I don't think should be heading the EPA.” “But this story has many chapters to unfold here,” Gore said. Gore remains hopeful “An Inconvenient Sequel,” which comes 10 years after “An Inconvenient Truth,” follows Gore through a year in his life as he tries to effect change through education — whether it's private individuals or world leaders.

"We've campaigned four times and it'd be really great to see it through to the finish line." Netflix and Amazon both plan to increase 2017 spending to create and market original movies and series and are being watched closely this year at Sundance, the premiere U.S. independent film festival. Liesl Copland, partner and finance and distribution agent at talent agency William Morris Endeavor, which sold Manchester to Amazon, said each streaming platform offers filmmakers very different models. "Amazon is very much a pro at integrating the theatrical release, Netflix is very much doing things for their large, international subscriber base, and now Hulu is working more like a paid television network," Copland said. Amazon acquired its first Sundance film, music documentary Long Strange Trip, on Wednesday, and plans to release it to U.S. and U.K. Prime subscribers in May.
