After having to postpone this year’s London Sundance Film Festival, the Sundance Institute and Picturehouse Cinemas have announced an online Celebration of Sundance Film Festival: London.
Presented by Adobe, the digital festival will run between 7 – 9 August 2020 and will present three feature films from this year’s Sundance Film Festival in Park City, Utah,
U.S.A., selected for London by the Sundance Institute programming team in collaboration with Picturehouse. Each UK premiere screening will be followed by an exclusive Q&A with the film teams.
The digital celebration will open with Uncle Frank, which is directed, written and produced by Alan Ball (American Beauty, True Blood) and stars Paul Bettany. Luxor, directed by Zeina Durra (The Imperialists Are Live) and starring Andrea Riseborough will premiere on Saturday. The event will close on Sunday with Boys State, directed by Jesse Moss and Amanda McBaine and winner of the U.S. Grand Jury Prize: Documentary at the 2020 Festival.
As well as access to the short film programme, Festival pass holders will enjoy discussions from an exciting group of speakers providing valuable insights into the art, craft, equity and business of independent film. “Transatlantic: Directors in Conversation” will see five leading UK and US independent filmmakers, Janicza Bravo (Zola), Emerald Fennell (Promising Young Woman), Romola Garai (Amulet), Justin Simien (Bad Hair), and Julie Taymor (The Glorias), engage in a vibrant and thoughtful discussion of their careers, creative processes, and films from the 2020 Sundance Film Festival and much more.
Festival passes cost £20 on general sale. £14 for Picturehouse Members, Cineworld Unlimited Customers and Co//ab Members. Festival passes are on sale today with individual tickets on sale at a later date.
