Not heading out to Park City, Utah this week? Bummed about missing yet another Sundance Film Festival? Well, thankfully there is something we all know as YouTube, and they are helping to calm down that pain.
The festival has teamed with the streaming giant, and have added a cavalcade of short films to their Screening Room page, 12 to be exact, all of which are available for free to stream right now.
I myself haven’t seen any of these at this moment, but I’ve heard really great things about a few of them, particularly Black Metal, from director Kat Candler. As a huge fan of these types of festivals and the short films that are programmed for them, this is something that is really intriguing. The short programs at these festivals, particularly ones like Sundance and the ever thrilling SXSW shorts lineups, so the idea of giving a few of these the spotlight of something like YouTube is really fantastic. Just looking through this series and a few jump out like The Event, so hopefully these will be up for a good deal of time to let people really dig through this intriguing lineup.
