And a bit of caution to filmmakers who might consider day-and-date release with Park City without being prepared
Premiering at Sundance and Slamdance provides a film with one of the biggest world stages to launch a film. Savvy filmmakers might consider using the festival to launch a national release of their film.
At this year’s Sundance Film Festival, Linas Phillips, Thomas Woodrow and company are using the fest to launch the release of their film "Bass Ackwards" in conjunction with New Video. Last week three more films announced that they will at least be releasing their VODs day and date at Sundance. While these three films are being released by the Sundance Select series on Rainbow, it is actually run by IFC, which has been pioneering festival/vod day and date.
