Recall my post from in January announcing a new distribution initiative from Sundance, offering new streaming distribution options for all Sundance-stamped films, giving life to buried works that may otherwise go unseen?

At the time, the Sundance Institute announced the first set of 10 films supported by the Institute that will enjoy the privilege of being, for the very first time, available to rent, download and stream on iTunes, Amazon Instant Video, Hulu, SundanceNOW and YouTube.

It was said that the titles would become available on Netflix on March 1.

Well... it's March 1.

Films available today include at least one I can immediately identify, given that we've covered it on S&A: Zack Godshall's tragi-comedy Lord Byron, the 2011 Sundance selection.

Here are all the 10 films currently available on Netflix streaming today, courtesy of this new initiative from the Sundance Institute:
