Sundance Institute will once again partner with local art house cinemas across the country to creat specialized screening programs of Sundance films for local audiences. The Sundance Institute's program pairs the institute with art house theaters in 12 cities as a way for the institute to "pay tribute to art houses committed to building audiences for independent film at the local level." As part of the project, film curators from these theatres are invited to attend the Sundance Film Festival and select the films to bring to their local audiences. This year, the local programs will include a specially-selected series of short films from the 2007 Sundance Film Festival including: "Death to the Tinman" (directed by Ray Tintori), "Peace Talk" (directed by Jennifer Malmqvist), "King" (directed by Caran Hartsfield), "Salt Kiss" (directed by Fellpe Gamarano Barbosa), "God Provides" (directed by Brian Cassidy, Melanie Shatzsky), "Everything Will Be OK" (directed by Don Hertzfeldt) and "Happiness" (directed by Sophie Barthes).
