Sundance Channel clips available on YouTube
Sundance Channel today announced an agreement with YouTube that will make excerpts from Sundance Channel content available on YouTube this year.
The arrangement will kick off with content produced by Sundance Channel from the 2007 Sundance Film Festival and will continue with clips from Sundance Channel’s original series, films and documentaries. The announcement was made today by Christopher Barry, vice president, digital media and business strategy, Sundance Channel.
Sundance Channel’s coverage of the 2007 Sundance Film Festival will include a Sundance Channel-branded area on YouTube (www.youtube.com/sundancechannel) that will host a range of video clips including Festival Dailies (Sundance Channel’s daily wrap-up show from the Festival), profiles of filmmakers in competition at the Festival, archival video clips from past Festivals and in-depth coverage of the Festival by YouTube users Arin Crumley and Susan Buice. New content will be published each day of the Sundance Film Festival and will be featured prominently on YouTube.
The content will also be featured on Sundance Channel’s Web site in a revamped minisite dedicated to the Sundance Film Festival (www.sundancechannel.com/festival).
