Sundance screening five festival films via on-demand

By Sean O’Connell
Hollywoodnews.com: Can’t make it to Park City, Utah for the Sundance Film Festival this month? Have no fear. Sundance is bringing a portion of the festival to us.

Sundance Selects, the theatrical and video-on-demand film label, recently announced a partnership with the Sundance Institute to once again sponsor the “Direct from the Sundance Film Festival.” Running concurrently with the 2011 Sundance Film Festival – scheduled for Jan. 20-30 — the initiative will air five films being screened at the fest through on-demand technology.

From the release:

The films include four world premieres recently acquired by Sundance Selects (Brendan Fletcher’s MAD BASTARDS, Michael Tully’s SEPTIEN, Paul Mariano and Kurt Norton’s THESE AMAZING SHADOWS, and Joe Swanberg’s UNCLE KENT) and one U.S. premiere (Gregg Araki’s KABOOM).

The films featured through the Sundance Institute and Sundance Selects partnership will begin screening on video-on-demand at the same time as their premieres at the Sundance Film Festival, and will be available in approximately 40 million homes on most major cable systems including Bright House, Comcast, Cablevision, Cox, and Time Warner Cable.

President of Sundance Selects Jonathan Sehring said, “Working with the Sundance Film Festival and Sundance Institute has been an exceptional collaboration for us. We love being able to, once again, take some of the remarkable films that Sundance Film Festival has to offer this year, directly to the homes of millions of film lovers who won’t be able to make the trek to Sundance.”

“Direct from the Sundance Film Festival” will be available for approximately 30 days on each cable system’s main movies-on-demand channel in a special “Sundance Film Festival” branded section.

Sundance Selects is a sister company to IFC Films.
