    Lawsuits have been filed in the circuit courts against Sundance, anyone who has ever submitted a film and has been rejected may be involved with a 'class action' lawsuit against Sundance for theft, fraud, see Scam Fest the Movie

    Letting you know you have a little error in here.

    "The Short Film Audience Award will be announced on (could you add the info about the closing awards?)."

    Great post thank you for announcing this! I love the Sundance shorts and seek them out every year
