Submission + - Sundance movies to be available on iTunes Store

BeerCat writes: "The BBC is reporting that "The Sundance Film Festival has struck a deal with Apple to allow festival films to be sold through its iTunes store" The film festival, starting 18 January, will allow several (currently 33) of the 71 short films to be made available on the (US) iTunes Store, for the price currently being charged for TV shows and short films ($1.99). This will be in addition to them being available on the Sundance site for streaming. However, it is not intended to allow any of the feature films to be sold this way, as, according to John Cooper of the Sundance Institute, "What Sundance is really known for is as a platform for people to sell their films, and that's mainly the feature film. We didn't want to really interfere with that yet."

Wonder if Apple will make the films available on other iTunes Stores sites other than the US one."
