1. "Blue is the Warmest Color": One of the best films of 2013 (and surely, one of the most controversial), "Blue is the Warmest Color" is now available to watch on SundanceNow and other digital platforms. Directed by Abdellatif Kechiche, "Blue" is about so much more than the NC-17 rated sex scenes. It's first and foremost a coming of age story about a young woman experiencing true love or the first time. Check it out on SundanceNow here.

2. "That Awkward Moment:" To promote "That Awkward Moment," the new comedy featuring Zac Efron, Miles Teller and Michael B. Jordan, Focus Features has teamed up with UBER, the mobile app that connects users with transportation options. If you live in Chicago, NY or LA, you can catch a free ride this weekend if you tweet #UBERAwkward with your city name and details of your awkward moment (do you need a free ride that bad?!). For rules, visit www.SoVeryAwkward.com/UBERAwkward.

3. Sundance Sale: If you've got Sundance on your brain, check out the sale on titles from Sundance 2013 over at iTunes -- you can buy a selection of films which premiered at the 2013 fest for $9.99 in HD, including "The Way Way Back," "Concussion," "Dirty Wars" and many more. Check out the sale here. Also on sale to rent for 99 cents is "The Kings of Summer."

4. Showrunners on Twitter: Our TV editor Alison Willmore created a thoroughly researched list of 15 Showrunners to Follow on Twitter. While they're all TV folks, nowadays, the line between TV and film is so blurred anyway. Whether you're a TV fan or a film fan or a fan of both mediums, check out Willmore's list here.

5. Favorite DPs: As part of our How I Shot That series, Indiewire asked cinematographers with films at this year's Sundance to name their favorite directors of photography (no surprise that Roger Deakins, Harris Savides and Gordon Willis are mentioned quite a bit). Read about the other favorite DPs.
