The Sundance deals avalanche slowed down as the festival ended over the weekend, with THINKFilm picking up North American rights to David Wain's comedy The Ten in association with City Lights Pictures' joint venture with Warner Music Group division WEA.

THINKFilm plans a summer release for the film, which deploys 10 vignettes to illustrate the lessons of the Ten Commandments. Paul Rudd, Winona Ryder, Liev Schreiber, Gretchen Mol, and Oliver Platt star, among others.

'Our success with The Aristocrats and Strangers With Candy has whetted our appetite, and proven our skills, for this sort of smart, outrageous comedy,' THINKFilm's theatrical chief Mark Urman said. 'With The Ten, we believe we can reach a much, much wider audience.'

Urman and THINKFilm's executive vice president of acquisitions and business affairs Randy Manis negotiated the deal with John Sloss of Cinetic Media.

At time of writing several buyers were circling Jake Paltrow's drama The Good Night and a deal was expected to be announced on Monday. Slamdance entry You Are Here, which like The Good Night is represented by Endeavor, was also expected to sell imminently.

Also in play were A Very British Gangster, The Nines, Protagonist, Chasing Ghosts, The Devil Came On Horseback, Starting Out In The Evening, and Dark Matter.

Meanwhile Christopher Zalla's immigration drama Padre Nuestro won the Grand Jury Prize: Dramatic Competition and Jason Kohn's Brazil-set Manda Bala took corresponding documentary honours.

The festival winners were announced at the festival's closing awards ceremony in Park City, Utah, on Jan 27.

'The films in this year's programme have opened up the possibilities of what independent film can be and will be in the future,' festival director Geoff Gilmore said.

'The 2007 Sundance Film Festival award-winners reflect the talent, diversity, and evolution of independent film and exemplify the artistic power of film to illuminate and explore issues that are prevalent in our global society.'
