MUMBAI: Sundance is collaborating with YouTube on three titles from the new Next strand set to receive their world premieres in Park City.

Linas Phillips‘ road movie Bass Ackwards, Todd Barnes and Brad Barnes‘ romance Homewrecker, and Michal Mohan‘s friendship drama One Too Many Mornings will screen.

Commencing on January 22, these films will be showcased on the YouTube homepage after which they will also be available till 31 January at YouTube Movies.
The Cove and Children Of Invention, will also be made available for rental.

Said Sundance Film Festival director John Cooper, "It has been our goal this year to find opportunities for our film-makers by linking them to our technology partners and YouTube has been a great sponsor and partner." 

"The YouTube commitment to independent film is aligned with ours at Sundance. This begins a new age of connecting our artists directly to audiences," Cooper added.

The films will be available for rental from 22 to 31 January and will be priced at $3.99 that includes an unlimited number of views during a 48-hour period with the exception of The Cove which will be a 24-hour window.

Filmmakers of these films will receive majority of the revenue share and none of the participating filmmakers opted to have a cap on streams. This means that there will be no limit to how many rentals can be purchased during the 10-day period.

After 31 January, the films will no longer be available under their current deal with YouTube.
