Sundance To Offer An Online Film Festival

Broadband Internet portal StreamSearch has been selected by the organizers of the Sundance Film Festival to create an online site for the Sundance Film Festival that will showcase many of the festival's entries.

Although it was not clear to what extent the entries would be presented online -- a news release seemed to indicate that filmmakers may have to submit their works separately -- once for the actual festival and again for the online festival -- it appeared that the Sundance site would make greater use of them than any other previous film festival.
