Tyro helmers to cover London Sundance

Series of shows to air on Sundance Channel

LONDON — The debut London Sundance Film and Music Festival, which bows April 26 at the O2 arena, will be covered by young filmmakers in a series of shows to air on the Sundance Channel across Europe and Asia.

A highlights package from the four-day event is being filmed by a youth-run shingle set up by Elisabeth Murdoch’s Shine and British youth outreach agency Livity. It will air May 5-6.

In a statement, Sundance founder Robert Redford said: “This is a continuation of our mission that began 30 years ago in the mountains of Utah.

“Independent film has since become one of the most exciting forums to showcase diverse voices and compelling stories. Sundance Channel continues to provide a platform for emerging talent.

“It’s also exciting that young artists will become involved in the first Sundance London festival and that their work will be seen on the network internationally.”

Additionally Sundance Channel in Europe and Asia will feature the TV preems of three newly acquired films from the 2012 Sundance Film Festival.

They are “California Solo” from U.S. writer/director Marshall Lewy, starring Robert Carlyle, Brazil’s “Father’s Chair” (A Cadeira do Pai) from director Luciano Moura, and Greece’s “L,” helmed by Babis Makridis.
