Regarding the lawsuit against Sundance (2012 Abbinante vs. Sundance H12S00037) The lawsuit alleges that Sundance is committing fraud by not returning submission fees to filmmakers whose films were not screened and evaluated by Sundance.
However this case is closed as of 2 weeks ago and no one including Indiewire, Film Threat, Filmmaker Magazine, has reported anything about this case.

The judge stated "if you can not prove Sundance is not watching at least 30 seconds of each and every film submitted, then you can not prove fraud."

Adam Montgomery and Sundance has basically went on record to state that "They don't have any legal obligation to watch the 12,000 submissions each year, ( totals app. 600,000.00 $) and filmmakers are not aware of this and no one reports this?

Something is seriously wrong here? All filmmakers are encouraged to go to
