One of the world's most famous film events is coming to our shores: Sundance London sees figurehead Robert Redford bring his famed film-fest to the London O2 from April 26th-29th.
If you love cinema but are getting a little bored of robot aliens fighting superheroes and megasharks, then you could do a lot worse than check out the programme at Sundance London. All in all, 14 independent films are receiving their premiere, including comedies, dramas, documentaries and more.
You can see a full list of the films showing at Sundance London on the official site, but we're looking forward to quirky comedy Safety Not Guaranteed (pictured), about an ad placed in a local paper for volunteers willing to travel through time, and The Queen Of Versailles, a documentary about a couple whose fortunes fail in the midst of building the biggest house in America. Lena Dunham's drama Nobody Walks, starring US Office star John Krasinski, already has big festival buzz. Finally, we can't wait to cut loose with LCD Soundsystem concert movie Shut Up And Play The Hits.
Safety Not Guaranteed: A budget Back To The Future?
Famous figures from the world of film will be in attendance, too. Robert Redford, taking time out from having the world's most interesting face, will host the opening event with Blues legend T Bone Burnett, while the Sundance Host Committee features esteemed names like Danny Boyle, Edgar Wright, Stephen Frears, Helen Mirren, Nick Broomfield and Paddy Considine among others.
There will be live music on show if the moving image isn't your thing, with trip-hop legend Tricky performing 'Maxinquaye' album in full. As well as the film programme, there will be a whole assortment of shows, panels and events to get your teeth into.
Tickets start from £11.50 and can be purchased on the official site. We'll be there checking out what's new in world film, so hopefully we'll see you there!
