At a panel this week at the Tribeca Film Festival with BitTorrent's Ashwin Navin, Todd Wagner of 2929 Entertainment, and Dean Garfield of the MPAA, director Steven Soderbergh said he planned to use BitTorrent to release a short he's doing.

Steven Soderbergh is doing a an High-Def film with the next issue of the DVD quarterly magazine Wholphin, due out in mid-May. No news on the title of the short. It's a small step, but definitely a step for BitTorrent in its efforts to woo Hollywood to use its file sharing technology to distribute to people.

Before it's here, it's on the Bloomberg Terminal.
