“The Sundance Online Film Festival is one of the Sundance Institute’s newest and most exciting programs,” commented John Cooper, Director of Programming, Sundance Film Festival. “With the Internet, we are using technology to bring new and exciting films to as broad an audience as possible. The spirit of independent cinema is embedded in the films, filmmakers and events that comprise the Sundance Film Festival. The Sundance Online Film Festival is the wave of the future.”
The offerings range from a U.S. Short about a Bigfoot expedition gone horribly wrong (BROADCAST 23) to an International Short following sixty years of romance under the Cuban sun in the countryside of Pinar del Rio (LOVE AND LAUNDRY) and everything in between.
