The Sundance Film Festival's Movies are Streaming on Amazon Prime

Amazon will be bringing this year's 2017 Sundance Film Festival selections to Amazon Prime, enabling consumers to stream the esteemed films through the service.

Although the service is appealing to the average consumer, this deal positions itself as an artist-first move, offering art cinema the opportunity to gain a wider viewer base after film festivals, as often, these films don't receive theatrical distribution deals. This deal will bring high-quality cinema to the accessible streaming service, catering to 'cinephiles,' while providing a wide demographic of people with the opportunity to enjoy movies they may not typically watch.

Some of the official selections include 'Manifesto' staring Cate Blanchett, Marjorie Prime and the winner of the Special Jury Award for Cinematic Vision, Free and Easy.
