While the original Sundance London would have been back at the end of May, which was obviously postponed, we’re now very pleased to share the news that it’s returning in a digital format between 7-9 August!
In what would have been its fifth year, Picturehouses are still very much part of the setup and have given us the awesome news that you’ll be able to watch the 2020 Sundance Film Festival into living rooms around the UK via the Sundance website, and you’ll be getting:
3 Days. 3 Films. 8 Shorts.
Each film will receive its UK premiere at the digital festival and will include an introduction and a live Q&A with the filmmakers. Alongside the feature films, there’s also a collection of short films from the Utah festival, click here for the full rundown, and two panel discussions with special guests.
It opens with Uncle Frank, which is directed, written and produced by Alan Ball and stars Paul Bettany. Luxor, directed by Zeina Durra 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.
