Sundance Film Festival 2016
Home-Based Businesses Steal The Show At Sundance 2016 #IndieLounge
Home Business Magazine catches up with actor Gilbert Gottfried at Sundance 2016 #IndieLounge.
Sundance 2016 buzzed with red carpet celebrity gifting events and soirees, but #IndieLounge was the one suite no one wanted to miss. From exhilarating DJ sets to in-house Sundance film screenings, to exclusive invite-only parties, #IndieLounge stole the show as the ultimate hotspot for festival attendees. Home Business Magazine scored a coveted invite to #IndieLounge and was able to see why it is always a true must-attend event for both Hollywood big names like Gilbert Gottfried and home-based businesses.
This year, top actors like Danielle Radcliffe, Justin Long, Don Cheadle, and Missi Pyle attended #IndieLounge and received gifts from a variety of unique home businesses and other startups. First off, everyone loved Tatterdemalion‘s eco-friendly and chic accessories, Stemulation‘s revolutionary skincare that uses the power of stem cells, andJoggo‘s socially conscious and stylish bags. Guests also loved the comfy handmade rope sandals and beer holders from Nomadic State of Mind, a company that started out of founder Chris Anderson’s VW van (which served as his summer home for a while).
Nomadic State Of Mind gave away handmade rope sandals and beer holders at Sundance 2016 #IndieLounge.
All of the stars also adored Olympia Luggage‘s fashion-forward rolling luggage, organic body mousse from Simply Eden, and the incredibly scented hand-poured candles from KNA Boutique, a home-based startup by sisters Kira “N” April. Other popular gifts were nourishing gold-infused skincare from 24K Donna Bella Cosmetics and delectable coconut peanut butter from North Shore Goodies.
Hand-poured candles by KNA were very popular at #IndieLounge.
While browsing the many gifts available, guests indulged in sweet and savory waffles fromSaturday’s Waffles, ABK Beer, and cocktails/mocktails. In the gifting area, actor Gilbert Gottfried stopped by to chat about his experience at #IndieLounge. When asked about his favorite gifts, he happily shared some jokes:
“I like the rifle, as they said it’s easy for kids to learn. (laughs) I also like the explosive devices and the new glue that you can sniff out of the tube,” he jokingly said.
And what else was the talented actor/comedian up to for Sundance 2016?
“I don’t know!” he said. “I think I have more press to do and I’ll basically go wherever someone grabs me and takes me.” (laughs)
Throughout the first weekend of Sundance 2016, #IndieLounge also put on live music shows, the exclusive see-and-be-seen Life & Style/Svedka Cocktail Party, and screenings for Sundance 2016 films like The Green Fairy and Horses & Heroes.
In all, it was a captivating experience that was the perfect way for entrepreneurs to get their products and services in the hands of Sundance stars and generate mass publicity about their brands. If you are looking for a way to tie your home business to Sundance 2017, make sure to put next year’s #IndieLounge at the top of your event sponsorship list.

Sundance’s Indie Lounge was all about the chill scene — think massages and coffee blended with healthy fats. The bar was serving up libations in keeping with that, including Rock N Roll tequila and ABK Hell beer. Among the goodies offered up to celebrities in the VIP suite were KNA candles made by sisters Kira and April Antuna in the kitchen of their Los Angeles home, Nomadic State of Mind Grateful Dead dancing bear shoes, Olympia backpacks and suitcases, and handcrafted Ramp snowboards and skis.
KNA Official Launch Boutique Party
posted in Street
I definitely saved the date and enjoyed myself at KNA official launch party located at Sal’s Resturaunt in Los Angeles, California. The blue tinted room was filled with positive vibes and as I walked in, I was greeted with champagne. The shoppers were entertained with great live entertainment by Trey Cameron and the event was amazing! KNA boutique is self named after the founders who are sisters, Kira and April. ( I absolutely love the letter “N” connecting their initials.) KNA boutique consists of trendy clothing, accessories, and beauty products. They are definitely N and I recommend all of my N-siders to visit and buy their products.
I had the opportunity to meet the owners, and they confidently explained to me that their beauty products such as their soap and candles are naturally made by them; isn’t that amazing?! I always seem to buy products and can barely understand most of the ingredients listed, however I am familiar with every natural herb that was mentioned. Although the sisters are different, Kira is fashion forward while April is into the arts, they allow their customers to get the best of both worlds. Their motto is to “be safe, be healthy, and be happy.” I traveled to Los Angeles, California from Jersey City, NJ and their event made me feel all two; I would say healthy but that would be a lie. (I’ve been eating too many In-N- Out burgers lol.) Congratulation ladies, and I look forward to keeping you guys N-tuned with future updates as these two sisters continue on their new journey.
