This was the year film fests discovered iPhone apps; Seattle had one (pictured) and now Sundance has one too. It's featured at Apple’s iTunes site and App Store. The app delivers real-time info to attendees:

Users are able to search films and events, watch videos and trailers, interact with Twitter and Facebook, upload photos, find venues using location-based services and maps and much more. Sundance Institute will update the schedule, add content and add new events in real-time. Fans will access the Sundance Film Festival film guide and schedule, read about special panels and events, access top stories, meet the participating artists, search films, and watch videos. It is available online now for $4.99.

I have a BlackBerry, alas.

    Shameless plug time: Anne, you're in luck -- Blackberry (and all mobile users, in fact) can point their phones to http://sundance.bside.com, which will detect mobile browsers and display the streamlined mobile version of the site. The mobile version allows for most of the functionality of the main site, including personal calendar creation and viewing trailers (if your phone supports the video format).

    In addition, you can use the main site's "download schedule" tools to download your personal calendar or the full Sundance schedule to Outlook or any other calendar program, and from there to your Blackberry calendar.

    The development team at B-Side worked closely with the Quickmobile team and we're proud to support the work they've done on a standalone iPhone application for the Sundance Film Festival. We're also mindful of the fact that the iPhone is just one of many smartphone choices, so we work in earnest to support other mobile users in their quest for on-the-go schedule information.
