Thirteen titles from the Sundance archive have signed deals with New Video and are to be available on digital distribution platfroms on March 1st, and some of the Sundance 2012 class may not be too far behind. The New York Times reported on a new distribution plan initiated by the Sundance Institute and digital distributor New Video. This new deal allows all Sundance Festival titles afilliated with the institute’s lab that have not signed away their digital distribution rights, to sign the deal with New Video. Sundance Institute head Keri Putnam, has a three point strategy for helping the affiliated filmmakers navigate the business world. The second goal is to help filmmakers crowdsource for funds, and thirdly, to provide extra marketing and promotional support.
