Sundance Film Festival Announces 2011 Shorts Program
More than 6,000 submissions from around the world were whittled down to 81 short films that will screen in Park City next month.
The Sundance Institute announced Monday the 81 short films that it has selected to screen at the Sundance Film Festival in January. A total of 6,467 shorts were submitted from U.S. and international filmmakers.
The short film programming team is led by Kim Yutani and includes Todd Luoto, Emily Doe, Ernesto Foronda, Jon Korn, Katie Metcalfe, Hebe Tabachnik and Lisa Ogdie.
”It’s a marvel to discover the creativity in this year’s shorts program,” said programming director Trevor Groth. "These filmmakers are charged with telling compelling stories, nurturing breakout performances and engaging the audience, all in a fraction of the time allocated to features, and each one delivers, For 2011, we are pleased to be able to shine a light on indigenous filmmakers working around the world in the short-form medium, and to provide festival goers with a window into native storytelling.”
