Sundance London to Run April 25-27

Filmmaker development program to be expanded

LONDON — The Sundance London film and music festival will run next year from April 25-27 at the O2 Arena, the Sundance Institute and AEG Europe announced Monday.

The fest will include the same number of films and events as in previous years, but will have an expanded filmmaker development program, including the return of the Sundance London Short Film Competition and a Shorts Workshop.

The Short Film Competition will relate to a theme of “Making a go of it” — “stories about moving forward in life, love or loss and the pursuit of inspiration.” The deadline for submissions is March 3. 

On April 26, a Shorts Workshop for aspiring filmmakers will take place at Cineworld at the O2, led by Mike Plante, short film programmer for the Sundance Film Festival.

John Cooper, director of the Sundance Film Festival, said, “In keeping with the event’s purpose of celebrating independent artists, the Short Film Competition and workshop allow us to tap into the vibrant artistic community in the U.K. and connect that work with audiences at the festival.”
