Sundance Shorts Set

Sundance Shorts Set

by Mark Rabinowitz and Eugene Hernandez

The 1998 Sundance Film Festival's short film lineup has been set. In
an interview with indieWIRE on Wednesday, Associate Director of Film
Festival Programming John Cooper spoke about the makeup of the list.
While the number of films selected (68 as of this writing, with
the list subject to grow) only rose slightly, the number of films
submitted, around 1,500, was up a couple of hundred from last year. Cooper
also commented on the large number of women in the shorts program, with
over one third of the films selected coming from women directors.

John Cooper explained that nearly half of the films will screen in one of the
shorts programs (while others will screen before features). Additionally, there
will be a midnight shorts program, made up of films similar in tone to the
fest's traditional midnight feature length offerings. Finally, Cooper said that
one section -- Shorts Program III -- will be a combination of documentary and
documentary-like films, a style not often found in shorts.
