Sundance Institute and YouTube will make 12 short films from the festival available in the YouTube Screening Room, running from January 6 to February 3.

“We are thrilled to be able to share a selection of short films free online on the YouTube Screening Room with the broader public,” Trevor Groth, Sundance’s director of programming, said. “The Screening Room will offer just a sample of the diversity and originality of the 2011 Sundance Film Festival Shorts Program, as well as a taste of Institute history.”

Titles include By Modern Measure by Matthew Lessner, Little Farm by Calvin Reeder, Countertransference by Madeleine Olnek and Choices by Rashaad Ernesto Green.
