The best testament to the buying madness of Sundance 2011 may be the vertigo that results from trying to tally all the sales.

This is by no means a complete chart -- there are yet more deals ongoing and this assessment doesn't detail exactly which rights were purchased. However, to keep the number of asterisks to a minimum, we've tried to break down the distributors by their North American buyers.

On the jump, you'll find the list broken down by sales agent; note that some films were represented by more than one agency.

If you have corrections or additions, we'd love to hear them: editors@indiewire.com.
