8 Things To Look Out For At Sundance London
Our hot tips for Robert Redford’s SE10 extravaganza

submit to reddit

It’s not every week that the great Robert Redford ventures down to SE10 – unless he’s got a thing for the National Maritime Museum we don’t know about – but since expanding the Sundance Film Festival to Britain he’s established an annual indie haven 8000 miles east of its American home. You couldn’t squeeze more high-calibre independent cinema into this historic corner of London if Todd Solondz set one of his misanthropic masterpieces aboard the Cutty Sark. So where to start between April 25 and 28? And, more important, what to see? Here’s Empire’s guide to the likely highlights.

Not all of them, mind – man’s gotta sleep – but enough to thrill fans and have the media rushing around The 02 in the kind of frenzy not seen since Justin Bieber was here.
