PARK CITY, Utah (AP) - Filmmaking executive Bingham Ray has died while attending the Sundance Film Festival. He was 57.

The San Francisco Film Society says Ray died Monday. He was hospitalized Saturday after suffering an apparent stroke while attending the annual showcase of independent film in Park City, Utah. The exact cause of death was not released.

Ray served as president of United Artists for several years, where he shepherded such films as "Bowling for Columbine" and "Hotel Rwanda." He also worked at Sidney Kimmel Entertainment, where he developed marketing and distribution plans for films including "Death at a Funeral" and "Lars and the Real Girl."

The Sundance Institute called Ray's contributions to independent film "indelible."

He is survived by his wife, three children and two sisters.
