Sundance Institute Screens Sundance Shorts 2013 in Youtube

Discover remarkable films all year long in The Screening Room youtube channel curated by Sundance Institute. 65 short films were selected from more than 8,000 submissions and among these, 12 will be available for public viewing at Youtube.

Keri Putnam, executive director of the Sundance Institute, says, "Short films have always been a very important part of our programming mix. It's a very exciting opportunity to partner with YouTube to share these films with a much wider audience."

The Sundance Film Festival is held annually in Park City, Utah and will run from Jan. 17 to 27 this year.

Intensely personal, outrageously funny, fantastically abstract...the possibilities within the short film form are limitless. The Screening Room, presented by Sundance Institute, puts exciting talent on display with work that takes risks and explores our world. We strive to find films that tell vibrant tales—vivid fiction, powerful true stories, and inspired animation all have a home here.
The titles available at Youtube follows:
