Sundance Film Festival Expanding to Hong Kong

The Sundance Film Festival is expanding its reach into Hong Kong through a screening series in September.

The Sundance Institute and Metroplex will present new American independent films,  accompanied by filmmakers and festival organizers at the recently launched cineplex in Kowloon Bay in Hong Kong.

The series Sundance Film Festival – Hong Kong Selects series will offer the Hong Kong premieres of eight films that screened at this year’s festival.

John Cooper, director of the Sundance Film Festival, said, “In our effort to share the best of American independent film with audiences outside the U.S., Hong Kong seemed an excellent location with a rich cinematic history.”

The program will be announced in mid-August followed by the commencement of ticket sales in late August. The series is being supported by the U.S. Consulate General in Hong Kong and Macau.

Screenings will take place during two weekends — Sept. 19-21 and Sept. 26-28.

The Sundance Institute started London screenings and expanded into Los Angeles last year. It will hold its Next Fest in during Aug. 7-10, kicking off with a 10th anniversary screening of “Napoleon Dynamite” on Aug. 7 at the Hollywood Forever Cemetery.

Robert Redford founded the Sundance festival in 1978.
