“Indie Game: The Movie,” “The Woods” and “Enemies of the People” are among the ten titles recently added to the Sundance Institute’s Artist Services program. The initiative is designed to help indie films made by Sundance alumni find digital distribution through iTunes, Amazon Instant Video, Microsoft Xbox, Sony Entertainment Network, SundanceNOW, VUDU, YouTube and the like.

New Video is the exclusive aggregation partner for distribution across these Artist Services portals, which will also include Hulu, Netflix and SnagFilms in the coming weeks.

"The films available today represent a sampling of the broad spectrum of independent films we have supported at the Sundance Film Festival or through our Labs,” said Sundance Institute executive director Keri Putnam. “For audiences, these offer a window into the legacy of independent film, spanning nearly 20 years and leading up to exciting, more recent work by these unique storytellers."
