The 2016 Sundance Film Festival: London will be hosted by the Sundance Institute and Picturehouse at the recently launched Picturehouse Central. The festival will feature the UK and international premieres of films from the 2016 edition of the renowned Sundance Film Festival in Park City, Utah.
“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,” said John Cooper, Director of the Sundance Film Festival. “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.”
“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,” added Clare Binns, Director of Programming and Acquisitions at Picturehouse.
This is the first time the Sundance Film Festival: London will be hosted at Picturehouse Central. Previous editions of the festival have featured UK and international premieres of films such as “Fruitvale Station,” “Obvious Child,” “Frank,” “The Trip to Italy,” “The Queen of Versailles,” “Blackfish,” “Upstream Color” and “The Look of Love.”
The 2016 festival will run June 10-12. More information can be found at the Sundance website.
