Connecting Independent Artists and Audiences in Two Key Global Locations Sundance Film Festival:

London to take place in 2016 at new Picturehouse Central
Robert Redford, President and Founder, said,
“We’ve nurtured filmmakers around the globe for many years now and these experiences have brought a rich perspective to all we do. Exploring international opportunities for the diverse landscape of American independent storytelling is an exciting proposition, and something to which we are equally committed.”
Sundance Institute will continue its film festivals in Hong Kong this year and London next year, with selections for each largely drawn from the Institute’s renowned Sundance Film Festival in Park City, Utah, U.S.A. These events are part of the Institute’s work to share independent films with audiences abroad.
The Institute has a more than 30-year legacy of discovering new films and filmmakers, which in recent years has included Academy Award winners and nominees Whiplash, Boyhood, 20 Feet from Stardom, Cutie and the Boxer and Beasts of the Southern Wild, as well as Fruitvale Station, Life Itself, Ain’t Them Bodies Saints, The Way, Way Back and The Invisible War.
