Exclusive: here's the full line-up for the 2016 Sundance Film Festival: London


Sundance Film Festival: London returns to the capital from June 2 to 5 2016, and we've got the full programme of feature films, short films and special events to share with you.

Eleven feature films will play at the festival, including 'Happiness' director Todd Solondz's 'Wiener-Dog' (which we're proud to be presenting as the Time Out film), producer-turned-director James Schamus's 'Indignation' and documentaries on the novelist JT Leroy ('Author: JT Leroy'), on the disgraced politician Anthony Weiner ('Weiner') and on an autistic child with a special relationship with a Disney puppet ('Life Animated').

Other titles playing at Sundance Film Festival: London include 'Tallulah', which stars Ellen Page (see pic above), and the shocking midnight movie 'Greasy Strangler'. Completing the main line-up of features are 'Goat', 'Other People', 'The Intervention' and 'Morris From America'.

Away from the big films, there's a strong focus on short films at this year's event. Two programmes of shorts will screen: one is a package of seven British shorts that played at the main Sundance Film Festival in Utah in January (including the Bafta-winning 'Edmond') and the other is a package of eight shorts from around the world that also played at Sundance. Of four special live events, two are focused on making short films: one is a masterclass, the other is a panel. The other two events are a panel on diversity in filmmaking and a discussion with filmmaker and former Focus Features head James Schamus.

The festival will screen three classic films that first premiered at Sundance in Utah: the Coen brothers's 'Blood Simple', Bryan Singer's 'The Usual Suspects' and Debra Granik's 'Winter's Bone'.

After a break in 2015, this year's Sundance Film Festival: London (note the slight change in name from the previous Sundance London at the O2) will unfold exclusively at Picturehouse Central in the West End. The line-up is handpicked from films that played in January at Sundance Film Festival in Utah. 

Tickets go on sale on Thursday May 5 for those who want to buy Festival Passes (£150) or VIP Passes (£450). Picturehouse Members and holders of Festival or VIP Passes can buy tickets from Friday May 6, and everybody else can buy tickets from Monday May 9.
