Sundance Film Festival 2008

Continuing its commitment to short film, Sundance has expanded its short film section - so we've split our coverage. This year's selection of 41 films are split into dramatic, documentary, animation and a new experiemental category. They "reinforce the genre as one which represents creativity and technological innovation".
