Sundance is one of the most acclaimed film festivals of the year. It is the tester festival, in many ways, where independent movies come out and try to find their audience. Then with critical and audience pushes, the films filter out into the general public. Though this is confined in North America, Londoners are lucky enough to get their own version with Picturehouse Central’s Sundance Film Festival London. And the programme has just been announced.
Presented by Time Out, horrific fright fest Hereditary is going to be scarring…i mean scaring…us all. Excitedly Bo Burnham’s debut comedy Eight Grade will be coming as well as Desiree Akhavan’s follow up to Appropriate Behaviour with The Miseducation of Cameron Post. Also on the roster there’s Ben Foster led Leave No Trace, Half the Picture, Greasy Strangler’s Jim Hosking returns with An Evening with Beverly Luff Linn, Jennifer Fox’s The Tale led by Laura Dern, will also be screening alongside Skate Kitchen, Never Goin’ Back, and Idris Elba’s Yardie.
Phew – that’s a lot of incredible movies coming out for Sundance Film Festival London – what do you think?
