    New documentary about Tolkein fans...

    An article on today on a documentary about some Tolkein fans.

    After the 2004 Academy Awards, the filmmaking team behind The Lord of the Rings headed out to celebrate. That's no surprise -- they had just won 11 Oscars.

    What was unusual was the party -- it wasn't the one put on by New Line, the studio that invested more than $300 million to produce the Lord of the Rings trilogy. No, director Peter Jackson, cast and crew headed to an event produced by fan site, where they took the stage, hoisted their statues and mixed and mingled.

    Hollywood insiders probably gasped -- the biggest Oscar sweep in history and these guys are partying with geeks! But Jackson and company recognized something essential about the success of The Lord of the Rings: It happened because of its rabid fans.

    At least that's the case made by a new documentary, Ringers: Lord of the Fans, which premiered at the Slamdance Film Festival this week in Park City, Utah.
