iW NEWS | Sundance Institute Expands Local Cinema Partnership

Sundance Institute announced the expansion of Sundance Institute Art House Project, a partnership with art house cinemas nationwide to build audiences and develop a supportive community of theatre owners committed to independent film. This year’s Art House Project includes a specially-selected series of short films from the 2008 Sundance Film Festival, a film tour of Margaret Brown‘s “The Order of Myths,” and a convergence of art house theatres from across the nation to be held January 13-15, 2009 in Salt Lake City, Utah. “We created the Art House project to go to the heart of where independent spirit lives all year,” said John Cooper, Director of Programming, Sundance Film Festival, in a statement. “Our organizing principle is to increase the market for film exhibition by expanding the number and effectiveness of community-based, mission-driven theatres in local communities, large and small, nationwide.” [Peter Knegt]
