Viewers can attend Sundance Festival via their TVs

The Sundance Film Festival is available on your TV on demand.If you're not cool enough (or smug enough) to head to Utah for the Sundance Film Festival this month, you can now watch key moments of the event via your TV on demand through the new video on demand service, Sundance Selects.

You can put on your overpriced, ugly ski boots and over-sized sunglasses while you pet your matchbox-sized dog -- pretending you're the up and coming star of a pretentious art house flick without leaving your living room. Sundance Selects is all set to send films from the 2010 Sundance Film Festival to a national audience for the first time.

You'll also get a first hand look at some of the live events that take place during the fest, as the on demand service "gives film lovers coast-to-coast the opportunity to experience a major film festival as it happens."

As part of the channel's "Direct From the Sundance Film Festival" initiative, a select group of three films will screen at the festival while simultaneously available on television for the 40 million plus homes with the Sundance Selects service.

According to a service press release, "The films in the partnership represent the broad range of cinematic expression found in this year's festival, from a highly anticipated documentary, to a thrilling Park City at Midnight title, to a critically acclaimed American independent film. All of the directors will be attending the 2010 Festival and will be available for interviews prior to the start or on-the-ground in Sundance."

But, it's a safe bet none of the films you'll sit through will put you in the mood for a bucket of popcorn and Twizzlers.
