ATLANTA, GA--Digital Projection International (DPI), an Emmy Award-winning manufacturer of high performance projection systems was recently chosen as Official Provider of Video Projection for the 2010 Sundance Film Festival.

The Sundance Film Festival is the world’s largest and most influential festival for independent films. This year’s festival is under the guidance of new director John Cooper. Having served the festival for over 20 years in various capacities, John replaces long time festival director Geoffrey Gilmore.

This year’s Sundance is once again proving that video content continues to change and dominate the landscape of this “film festival.” Digital Projection International’s precision displays are in 17 of the festival’s 18 venues. Digital Projection LIGHTNING and TITAN projectors will work for over two weeks, 19 hours per day, projecting 117 movies. And, for the first time, video projection has expanded beyond the confines of Park City and Salt Lake City. A TITAN 1080p 700 is permanently installed at the Peery’s Egyptian Theater in Ogden, Utah.

As their Official Provider of Video Projection for the past 12 years, the Sundance Institute has relied on Digital Projection International to present the era’s most important independently produced movies, documentaries and shorts. This year’s highly-anticipated opening movie was “Howl,” the story of the obscenity trial of famed beat poet Allen Ginsberg. As in previous years, the opening night movie was once again projected from DPI’s flagship LIGHTNING 40-1080p.

The 2010 festival follows a theme of rebirth, renewal and rebellion against the establishment of the expected.
