Default Open letter to Sundance TV - short foreign films

Dear Sundance TV,

There's quite a problem with your short foreign films - why are there no subtitles?

As examples;
"The Chicken" was watchable in my opinion as most of the storyline could be derived from the acting, but much was still lost in not understanding the conversations.
"Alvethor" was a complete waste of time, it was all about the not understood dialogue and if not for your synopsis it would have made no sense at all.

Such a great idea, but it seems there's been no personal interest by those involved with the follow through.

Thank you for your time.

Hi Optimist

The channel has apologised for the error. Please find their feedback:

"All shorts should have been subtitled. Some from other territories (shared with other feeds) appear to have slipped through the net as this was a new feed, and went out without localisation, but should not have done. We are identifying those that went out without subtitles internally and will let me know. We will then reschedule and confirm the new broadcast details so that they do not miss out. Please let them know their comments were heard (and resolved).

Thanks for drawing our attention to this and sorry for the slip."
