The Sundance Institute's distribution and marketing arm Artist Services will digitally debut four upcoming independent films. Beginning June 18, titles will be available everywhere from iTunes, Amazon and Microsoft Xbox to SundanceNOW.

The four films are internationally bound documentaries "Miss Gulag" and "High Tech, Low Life" as well as a film from the 2012 Sundance Film Festival: Erin Greenwell's narrative feature "My Best Day" and Detroit firefighter doc "Burn," directed by Tom Putnam and Brenna Sanchez, which came to Artist Services under the auspices of FIND's filmmaker program; it premiered at Tribeca in 2012. More details over at Sundance here.

Since launching in January 2011, Artist Services has been expanding and reshaping itself as an alternative distribution platform by continually making new titles digitally available for audiences and forming partnerships with Cinedigm and non-profit Film Independent, among others (read our TOH analysis from 2011 here).

Right now at Artist Services, you can watch films from the Oscar-nominated doc "Five Broken Cameras" to this year's polarizing indie from Shane Carruth, "Upstream Color."
