From The Circuit:

If the Sundance Film Festival can figure out how to pay for internet downloads, why not the AMPTP?

In today’s announcement of the 83 short films accepted for screening
at the 2008 Sundance Film Festival, the organization also noted that
all filmmakers in the shorts program will be paid for Internet
downloads through iTunes, Xbox LIVE and Netflix.

According to Sundance online producer Joe Beyer,
some veterans of the 2007 short films program have seen revenue in the
“tens of thousands of dollars,” even after iTunes and the Sundance
Institute took their fees.
