The Sundance Film Festival takes pace in Utah in January every year, and is known for breaking the biggest names in indie cinema. It’s given us the likes of Quentin Tarantino, Kevin Smith, David O Russell, Paul Thomas Anderson, Steven Soderbergh and pretty much every twee indie flick you can think of were some troubled arty dude has his life changed by a manic pixie dream girl.
The London leg of the festival launched in 2012. It took a year off in 2015, but the 2016 festival has been announced to take place June 2 to 5, at the newly renovated Picturehouse Central in Piccadilly. Previous films to make their UK bow at Sundance London include Fruitvale Station, Blackfish and Upstream Colour, and guests like Michael Fassbender, Gemma Arterton, and Ryan Reynolds—so expect at least one of your favourite movies of late ‘16/early ’17 to first appear here.
More information on when films and tickets will be announced is on the Sundance website.
