2007 Sundace Film Festival Short Films to Premiere on iTunes


Park City, UT – iTunes users are in for a treat as Sundance Institute and Sundance Channel today announced they will offer narrative, documentary and animation shorts from the 2007 Sundance Film Festival for download via iTunes. The announcement highlights Sundance’s stance on using technology to help filmmakers exhibit their work and to bring the Festival to fans all over the world. A wide array of the short films from the 2007 Sundance Film Festival will be available on iTunes for purchase and download priced at $1.99 each beginning Monday, January 22, 2007.
“I have felt, from the earliest days, that if people really care about independent film, they should pay particular attention to short filmmakers, who are the best indicators of what is coming down the creative pike,” said Robert Redford, president and founder of Sundance Institute and founder of Sundance Channel.”
The films available on iTunes are chosen from the 71 short films in the Sundace Film Festival. Free podcasts will also be available that will take listeners behind the scenes of the Sundace Film Festival including interesting panels with filmmakers, journalists and industry representatives direct from Prospector Square and live performances straight from the Music Café in Park City.
Sundance Institute will also continue to stream a number of short films online for free on the Sundance Film Festival website at www.sundance.org. These short films will be posted after they have screened at the Festival, beginning January 18 and continuing for three months to April 18.
