Sundance announces London line-up

The Sundance Institute has revealed which films will be screened at its first ever festival in the UK.

Fourteen films – first screened at the Sundance Festival in Park City, Utah, in January – will be shown at the O2 Arena, as part of a four-day event called Sundance London, at the end of April.

The highlights will include Julie Delpy’s 2 Days in New York – a sequel to 2007’s 2 Days in Paris, in which Delpy’s character Marion has broken up with Adam Goldberg’s Jack and is now living with their son in New York.

With many Sundance films being made by directors at the start of their career, there aren’t too many names that will prick up the ears, but the second feature directed by TV’s How I Met Your Mother star Josh Radnor, Liberal Arts, will be part of the line-up – and rising star of the indies, Paul Dano – known as the silent brother in Little Miss Sunshine and soon to be seen as Robert De Niro’s son in Being Flynn – will star in For Ellen, a drama about a struggling musician, who goes on a road-trip to fight his estranged wife for custody of their daughter.

The line-up will also include The House I Live In, which won the best documentary award in Utah in January. But the winner of the jury prize for the best film of the festival, Beasts of the Southern Wild, is not being shown in London.

Robert Redford, the actor and director who founded the Sundance Institute, said the independent American films he champions speak to universal experiences and global challenges. Sundance London also is the perfect opportunity to continue our long-time commitment to growing a broader international community around new voices and new perspectives, he added.
