Sundance Channel picks up raft of Sundance movies

Sundance Channel Global has picked up five Sundance Film Festival movie titles.

It has acquired Computer Chess (pictured), Halley, I Used to be Darker, It Felt Like Love and This is Martin Bonner and will show them throughout Europe and Asia in conjunction with the second annual Sundance London Film & Music Festival in late April.

The news came as AMC Networks, which runs the channel, announced several new carriage deals.

In Hungary, the Sundance Channel is launching as a subtitled linear channel on Magyar Telecom via cable and IPTV services. In Spain, the channel will launch in the coming weeks on cable operator R.

In Asia, Sundance Channel and WE tv recently launched on Sky Philippines and Thai pay TV MeTV.

Robert Redford, founder of Sundance Channel, said: “I’m excited that the strong growth of Sundance Channel is helping independent filmmakers share these stories with even bigger audiences worldwide. Emerging talent will continue to flourish in the mountains of Utah and far beyond.”
