MSN movies reports that under a new deal, iTunes will sell many of the short films premiering at the Sundance Film Festival. The films will also be available via streaming at the Sundance website. The article says this deal is nonexclusive so filmmakers will be able to make their own deals with distributors.
I tend to find Sundance shorts tedious and a bit self indulgent, but there are always some gems to be found among them. Unfortunately, this deal does not include the full length features from the festival. The festival takes place between the 18th and 28th of this month in Park City, Utah.
