Sundance Film Festival: London Releases Its In-Person Programme
Sundance Film Festival: London has announced its full in-person programme, packed with feature films, short films and panel discussions.
The world-renowned event is taking place at Picturehouse Central between 29 July and 1 August, subject to COVID restrictions.
Opening with Edgar Wright's much-anticipated documentary The Sparks Brothers, the Sundance schedule will showcase 15 features from the Sundance Film Festival in Park City, Utah, and will close with Janicza Bravo’s comedy-drama Zola.
Tabitha Jackson, Sundance Film Festival Director, said she is proud of the selection of releases that will be shown during the four-day event.
"These films exemplify the spirit of a unique 2021 Sundance Film Festival - bold visions, unique perspectives, and singular creative talents. We (and I as a proud Brit) can't wait to bring them to the big screens and in-person audiences of Sundance Film Festival: London," she said.
Alongside its varied film selection, the festival will also highlight the work of industry pioneers with a series of panel discussions, providing audiences with invaluable insight into the filmmaking process.
This includes 'Scare Tactics - Making Modern Horror’, a panel hosted by Wendy Mitchell and featuring guests including Censor director Prano Bailey Bond, as well as ‘Shaping The Truth: Discussing Documentary Ethics and Filmmaking’, which will be hosted by Doc Society’s Shanida Scotland and feature guests such as Kristina Lindström and Kristian Petri.
In a first for Sundance, this year’s edition will go on tour across the country, with films being shown in cinemas throughout the UK - with The Nest, Writing With Fire and Zola screening at over 30 movie theatres.
