SUNDANCE London Film and Music festival has announced the full line-up that will appear at the O2 in Greenwich, including more than 20 World, international, European or UK premieres.
The festival, from April 25 to 27, will screen 21 feature films and 18 shorts as well as music and panel discussions.
Among the high profile films to be shown are Arrested Development’s David Cross’s Hits, starring Michael Cera, and director David Wain’s deconstruction of the rom-com, They Came Together, starring Amy Poehler, Paul Rudd and Ed Helms.
Heartthrob Ryan Reynolds and Gravesend’s Gemma Arterton star in The Voices, which receives its international premiere.
British comedy fans will doubtless love Rob Brydon and Steve Coogan’s The Trip to Italy and Frank, which was written by The Psychopath Test author Jon Ronson and stars Michael Fassbender, Domhnall Gleeson and Maggie Gyllenhaal.
Pulp front man Jarvis Cocker will participate in one of several panels discussing film and music.
President and founder of the Sundance Institute, Oscar winner Robert Redford said: “That audiences in London have responded so positively to the films presented at the first two Sundance London festivals speaks to the power and universality of the stories told by our artists as well as the audience’s openness to exploring new ideas.”
