Sightseers Is Off To Sundance
As more screenings are announced

Sightseers

As we write this, UK cinemagoers are able to see Ben Wheatley’s latest film, crazed caravan trip pic Sightseers, wherever it’s playing. But US audiences are going to have to wait a little longer. Still, those headed to the Sundance Film Festival in January are in luck, as Sightseers has been selected as part of the fest’s Spotlight strand, alongside a batch of other films.

Yesterday brought the Dramatic, Documentary and NEXT films from the US and around the world and today it’s the turn of Spotlight, Park City At Midnight and New Frontier titles.

A blend of the quirkier films or, like Sightseers, films that might have premiered around the world but are new to the US, the strands represent Sundance’s mission to bring a wide variety of movies and the people who make them to a wider audience.

Among the films also listed are comedy Ass Backwards, horror anthology sequel S-V/H/S, comedy writing stalwarts Robert Ben Garant and Thomas Lennon’s directorial debut Hell Baby and a documentary called kink that explores the inner workings of an Internet pornography company. That one is produced by James Franco and directed by his long-time collaborator, Christina Voros.

Sundance runs between January 17 and 27 next year. For a full list of the latest announcements, point your browser at the Sundance site. And don’t forget that a selection of films premiering in Park City and beyond will also be headed over here for Sundance London, which lands on April 25 at the O2.

For some exclusive coverage of Sightseers, check out the latest issue of Empire, which is in all good and one or two trans-dimensional newsagents now. You can also find it on the iPad.
