Gwyneth Paltrow's directorial debut has been accepted at the 2006 Sundance Film Festival.

The Oscar-winning actress teamed up with pal Mary Wigmore to make short film DEALBREAKER and now the movie will be on view at the world's leading independent film event in January (06).

The film, which was also co-written by Paltrow, stars newcomer Arija Bareikis as a woman looking for Mr Right.

Paltrow was inspired to make the movie after reading an article written by a Glamour magazine reader about her own dating disasters.

The film is part of five short movies in the Glamour Reel Moments series, which will air on the magazine's website, Glamour.com, from today (09DEC05).

The other four projects were written and directed by stars like Lauren Graham, Rosario Dawson and Trudie Styler.

The Sundance Film Festival will run from 19-29 January (06) in Park City, Utah.
