Sundance: IFC jumps the gun; Spike Jonze short not going to the channel

Posted on

Perhaps it was the altitude. Whatever the reason, IFC’s earlier confirmation that they would be premiering Spike Jonze’s Sundance short I’m Here on their television channel is not correct. The company has not made a deal with Jonze and his backers from Absolut Vodka to air the short. Rather CAA is still negotiating with buyers to secure the film’s television and digital rights. Though if you go to www.Imheremovie.com, the site proclaims that the short, a modern-day take on Shel Silverstein’s The Giving Tree, will be available there in March.
