Lookout, Netflix. Sundance Now is considered to be a global home for independent films. The new online rental outlet currently features over 300 films available for rent with more titles and features to be added heading in the new year.
If you can't make it to the theater or want to catch up with something you might have missed, you can now find a number of independent films all in one place via this service. Jonathan Sehring, President of IFC Entertainment, described the service as a "digital platform, a global home for independent films. When we set out and got involved with the Sundance Channel, our whole mission was to connect filmmakers with their audiences and this is sort of the next logical step in taking what we do in distributing these independent films to the widest audience possible." It is essentially an alternative to Netflix.
Are you going to use this new Sundance Now service?
