The Sundance Film Festival has announced it will be back in London for 2017. America’s biggest and buzziest celebration of indie filmmaking will be bringing around a dozen films from the Utah mothership to the Picturehouse Central in Piccadilly for a four-day mini fest (June 1-4).
We won’t know until spring exactly what films are showing. But Robert Redford's festival is famous for its impeccable taste – it introduced 'The Blair Witch Project' to the world and discovered the talents of Wes Anderson, Ava DuVernay and Quentin Tarantino. And we do know that the line-up will include docs, dramas and discussions with directors and actors (past luminaries: Michael Fassbender, Gemma Arterton and Ryan Reynolds).
You can register now for a VIP Pass (£500, with the early bird price of £450 until January 31) or a Festival Pass (£150, with the early bird price of £125 until January 31) – the latter buys entry to ten film events plus other benefits including access to the Picturehouse Central's members’ bar. Individual tickets go on sale in spring. See you there!
Registration is open for Festival and VIP Passes from Friday November 25.
