iTunes will offer some Sundance 07 short films

About half of the short films that are part of the 2007 Sundance Film Festival (32 of 71 films, to be exact) will be on sale on iTunes starting on January 22nd, according to The Hollywood Reporter. But 46 shorts will be available for free on Sundance's own site, starting January 18th (the opening day of the festival.) From the piece:

    Just how successful the trial partnership between Sundance Institute and Apple will be is a big question mark, partly because all of the downloadable titles (and 14 additional shorts) will be streamed free of charge on Sundance's Web site through April 18. They will be available for purchase on iTunes for three years beginning January 22 alongside free podcasts featuring filmmaker panels and music performances from the fest.
