Slamdance inks deal with Microsoft

Festival to offer four films on-demand on Zune, Xbox

The Slamdance Film Festival, which kicked off Thursday in Park City, has struck a deal with Microsoft to offer four films from the fest as on-demand offerings on the Zune and Xbox platforms.

The one-week program will launch Jan. 27 through the Zune video Marketplace, where the four movies will be available for rental at a price-per-film of 600-800 Microsoft Points.

After that, additional Slamdance films will be added to a year-round program, which will offer video rentals and download-to-own.
