Lovers of indie and aficionados of alternative cinema, roll up! The Sundance Film Festival will be in London from June 2-5, this time with Empire Magazine in support, and a full cargo of non-mainstream movie fare.

Among the movies getting international premieres are Andrew Neel’s Goat, a hard-hitting fraternal drama, and The Greasy Stranger from English director Jim Hosking. Long-time Ang Lee producer James Schamus is also bringing his first feature film, Indignation, to the West End. Expect a soaring slice of 1950s varsity life.

After a brief hiatus in 2014, the London arm of the Sundance Film Festival is settling into its new home in the opulent surrounds of London’s Picturehouse Central. There’s not much snow and the skiing is pretty terrible, but Robert Redford’s Utah indie bonanza now seems to be building something special in the Old Smoke.

Empire will also be packing up its kit bag, moseying down Shaftesbury Avenue and introducing three classics at the festival. Look out for screenings of Blood Simple, The Usual Suspects and Winter’s Bone, all introduced by team Empire.

Head here for the full programme – look out, too, for Ellen Page-starring drama Tallulah and the return of Todd Solondz with Weiner-Dog, as well as a selection of shorts – and pick up tickets from May 5 at
