Sundance Institute and Picturehouse will host the Sundance Film Festival: London from 10 to 12 June 2016 at the recently launched Picturehouse Central. The festival will feature the international and UK premieres of films from the 2016 edition of the renowned Sundance Film Festival in Park City, Utah, USA.
John Cooper, Director of the Sundance Film Festival, comments: “Building on our 30-year legacy of discovery and creativity, the Sundance Film Festival: London gives us the opportunity to share new independent films we love with adventurous and engaged audiences in the UK. Our new timing in June will allow us to connect with London filmgoers as they start their summer, and also to take advantage of the fantastic rooftop space of our new host venue, the very impressive Picturehouse Central.”
Clare Binns, Director of Programming and Acquisitions at Picturehouse, adds: “Picturehouse’s flagship new Central London venue is all about celebrating a diverse, rich film culture from around the world, so it’s absolutely apt that we play host to the Sundance Film Festival: London next year. To showcase the very best movies from one of the leading festivals in the world will be a truly great experience for us and for London’s cinephiles. Bring it on.”
