The Sundance Institute has announced the short films to be featured in the 2001 Sundance Film Festival, Jan. 18-28 in Park City, Utah. Sixty-four shorts, chosen from 2,174 entries, will be screened as part of a shorts film program or preceding a feature-length film. A jury will present an award to a short film of outstanding achievement and merit.

“What strikes me about this year’s shorts competition is the diversity of nationalities represented,” fest programmer Trevor Groth said. “A number of these films were created in the United States by filmmakers from such homelands as the Czech Republic, Greece, Korea, Poland, Russia, Taiwan, Thailand and Vietnam, to name a few…. The shorts this year represent what a melting pot we truly are.”
