About The Festival
Sundance Institute teamed up with Picturehouse in London to offer audiences in the U.K. feature films, short films and panel discussions from the Sundance Film Festival. The festival is held at Picturehouse Central, which is located in the heart of London’s West End.
The films represent the best of new works by independent filmmakers.
The Sundance Film Festival: London took place at Picturehouse Central for the first time in 2016 when it premiered 11 films and 15 shorts, including those from the U.K.
Since the London festival started in 2012, it has welcomed filmmakers, artists and supporters such as The Prince of Wales, Ryan Reynolds, the Eagles, Minnie Driver and Rufus Wainwright.
In 2017, the London festival will also feature a lineup of films in a program called “Sundance Film Festival: Road to Stardom.” It showcase movies from Sundance’s 30-year history that have become famous.
Panel discussions will take up topics such as the changing face of independent films and diversity. There will also be panels offering advice to wannabe filmmakers.
Robert Redford, the president and founder of Sundance Institute, is quoted on sundance.org as saying, “I have long believed that the quality and originality of the independent films we show would be of interest to global audiences. Our ‘Sundance Film Festival: London’ allows us to further help these new independent films get out into the world, starting with engaged audiences in the UK.”
“Independent film takes a great step forward each year, and it is our pleasure and privilege to share these new independent films we love with London audiences,” John Cooper, director of the Sundance Film Festival, said.
And, in London, Clare Binns, director of programming and acquisitions at Picturehouse, said, “We are very excited to be bringing the best of this year's Sundance Film Festival to London and UK audiences plus some very special events and appearances.”

Things to see in London
When the movies are over, there is much to do and see in London. Here are some things you can check out:
- Big Ben: You can’t go up and see the 13-ton bell in the clock tower at the Houses of Parliament but you can listen to its chimes as it marks the hours on the four-faced clock atop Elizabeth Tower. To give you an idea of the clock’s size, the numbers on its face are each two feet tall. There are two theories about how Big Ben got its name. The more common one is that it was named after Sir Benjamin Hall, a large man who was London’s first commissioner of works and affectionately called Big Ben. The other is that it was named after heavyweight boxing champ Benjamin Caunt, who was also known as Big Ben.
- Westminster Abbey: Both Westminster Abbey, the coronation church of England, and the Palace of Winchester (the Houses of Parliament) are believed to be about 1,000 years old. They are the epicenter of England’s political life. An interesting piece of trivia is that the buildings once sat on a small island. Over the centuries, the surrounding water disappeared and the island became part of the mainland.
- Tower of London: The unabbreviated name of this historic castle is Her Majesty's Royal Palace and Fortress of the Tower of London. It is on the north bank of the River Thames in central London.
- Buckingham Palace: Home and headquarters of the royal family, Buckingham Palace, which dates back to 1761, has 775 rooms, including 52 bedrooms for the family and guests, 188 bedrooms for the staff, 19 staterooms, 92 offices and 78 bathrooms. It is surrounded by two parks in the heart of London. Visitors can tour the staterooms and the gardens.
