Robert Redford and 12-time Grammy Award winner T. Bone Burnett will launch the first Sundance London Music and Film Festival April 26. The event will combine film and music in a four-day event featuring UK debuts of titles from the upcoming 2012 Sundance Film Festival.

Sundance release follows:

Sundance founder Robert Redford and 12-time Grammy Award winner T Bone Burnett will open the first-ever Sundance London music and film festival on 26 April. Redford and Burnett in their first joint public appearance will explore the relationship between film and music. This event kicks off the new four-day, multi-disciplinary arts festival at The O2 which is a partnership between Robert Redford, Sundance Institute and AEG Europe. An Evening with Robert Redford and T Bone Burnett will be moderated by author and screenwriter Nick Hornby and will feature a special musical act to be announced soon.

Sundance London takes place 26 – 29 April, 2012, and will feature the UK premieres of films
fresh from the 2012 Sundance Film Festival which takes place 19-29 January, 2012 in Park
City, Utah, U.S.A. Daily live music performances, discussions, panels and other public events
will round out the four-day festival.

Passes, ticket packages and individual tickets for both the film and music components of
Sundance London will go on sale to the public on Monday 28 November at www.sundancelondon.
com.

Robert Redford, Founder and President of Sundance Institute, said: "The depth of T Bone’s
experience and accomplishments in the worlds of both film and music set the stage for the
Sundance London program and the celebration of music and film that’s to come. His ability to
enliven film in such an authentic fashion has seen him produce and curate some of cinema’s
most notable and commercially successful soundtracks.”

In the opening night event, filmmaker, actor and Sundance founder Robert Redford and
musician, songwriter, and soundtrack and record producer T Bone Burnett, will share their
recollections of achieving great musical moments with the many filmmakers, actors and
musicians they’ve collaborated with throughout their storied careers. Joined on stage by Nick
Hornby (High Fidelity), who will moderate the evening, the two artists of ‘sound and screen’
will utilise film clips from some of the many films they’ve worked on for which music made an
indelible contribution. Redford and Burnett will also discuss some of their favourite musical
moments from other great films that have influenced their work. The evening will be capped
off by a special musical act.

Burnett's 40 years of experience in music and entertainment include work as an artist,
songwriter, producer, performer, concert producer, record company owner and artist
advocate. His work as a music producer has resulted in Raising Sand, from Robert Plant and
Alison Krauss, The Union from Elton John and Leon Russell and best-selling albums from
Counting Crows, The Wallflowers, Los Lobos, Cassandra Wilson, Roy Orbison and Ralph
Stanley. His experience in film includes The Big Lebowski, O Brother Where Art Thou?, Walk
The Line, The Divine Secrets Of The Ya-Ya Sisterhood, Cold Mountain and Crazy Heart, for
which T Bone and co-writer Ryan Bingham earned an Academy Award, a Golden Globe Award
and a Grammy Award.

T Bone Burnett added: "I've admired immensely the work that Robert Redford and Sundance
Institute have done over the years to support independent film and filmmakers. I'm very
much looking forward to Bob and I sharing our experiences of the films we’ve been a part of,
as well as our recollections of the varied musicians, actors and filmmakers we've had the
good fortune to work with over the years.”

On being asked to moderate the evening, Nick Hornby said: “I am delighted and honoured to
be given an opportunity to talk to these two extraordinarily influential men. They have been
involved in some of my favourite films, and anyone who is interested in movie music, or
movies and music, will want to hear what they have to say.”

Alex Hill, AEG Europe, Chief Finance & Strategy Officer, said: “Having Robert Redford and T
Bone Burnett together for the first time on stage, and with Nick Hornby to open Sundance
London is sure to be a real highlight of the event. Between them, Robert and T Bone have a
wealth of experience and knowledge of contemporary American film and music that few could
rival.”

As previously announced, Sundance Institute, which presents the annual Sundance Film
Festival in Park City, Utah, U.S.A, will program the film component of Sundance London. 14
films from the 2012 Sundance Film Festival line-up will make their UK premieres at Sundance
London. Films that premiered at the Sundance Film Festival in recent years include Blue
Valentine, Winter’s Bone, Like Crazy, The Greatest Movie Ever Sold and Project Nim.
