PARK CITY, UTAH (AP) - As the Sundance Film Festival comes to a close, founder Robert Redford is glad it’s over.

The actor, 74, says it’s “always a relief” when the 10-day event wraps because “it’s really exhausting.”

He’s happy, though, about the success of this year’s festival, with about 45 films being sold _ up about 220 percent from 2010, when only 14 films were sold.

Redford believes the studios are taking an interest in the movies at Sundance because they’re realizing “there are audiences” for independent films.
