Sundance Channel Launches in Latin America and Will Feature "Jovenes Cineastas"

Sundance Channel the ever champion of independent film has decided to go global. Just a few weeks ago it launched in Latin America. Thanks to a partnership with DirecTV the channel will be available in Argentina, Chile, Colombia, Ecuador, Peru, Uruguay, and Venezuela. And there are talks of starting a separate Portuguese language channel in Brazil.

Let’s hope that it won’t just be another place to watch American indie films with Spanish subtitles. Recent programming includes Kevin Smith’s Clerks (hilariously translated to Vendedores) Adam Leon’s Gimme the Loot (Graffiteros), the celebrity confessional show The Mortified Sessions 101 (Las Sesiones Mortificadas 101), and the Spanish film El juego del ahorcado.
