To mark its 25th anniversary, The Sundance Institute, along with Robert Redford and the Brooklyn Academy of Music (BAM) have teamed up to host what they're labeling, Creative Latitude: Sundance Institute at BAM. The latitude part refers to the fact that Park City, UT and Brooklyn, NY share a 40.6 degree of latitude.

From May 11th through May 20th, 2006, the organization will screen a dozen feature films from the upcoming Sundance Film Festival at BAM, along with an assortment of different programs including script readings, panels, a Sundance theater lab showcase, and an evening of film music. Specifics won't be announced until after the festival, but you can start clearing your schedule now.

For those of you not in New York City, Sundance will also be celebrating the big 25 by going on tour, bringing a little bit of the festival to different parts of the country, while also promoting its Sundance Film Festival Collection DVD box set. So far the only cities mentioned were Nashville, TN, Ann Arbor, MI, and Orlando, FL. More details for the tour will be announced at a press conference on the opening day of the Sundance fest.
