The institute had announced in April that it would revive the London event next year after canceling it this year.
The 2016 event — dubbed Sundance Film Festival: London — will include the international and U.K. premieres of films from the 2016 edition of the main Sundance Film Festival in Utah in January.
John Cooper, director of the Sundance Film Festival, said, “Building on our 30-year legacy of discovery and creativity, the Sundance Film Festival: London gives us the opportunity to share new independent films we love with adventurous and engaged audiences in the UK. Our new timing in June will allow us to connect with London filmgoers as they start their summer, and also to take advantage of the fantastic rooftop space of our new host venue, the very impressive Picturehouse Central.”
Clare Binns, director of programming and acquisitions at Picturehouse, said that the new event would build on the success of Sundance London, hosted from 2012 to 2014, which featured the international and UK premieres of films including “Fruitvale Station,” “Obvious Child,” “Frank,” “The Trip to Italy,” “The Queen of Versailles,” “Blackfish,” “Upstream Color” and “The Look of Love.” Past attendees included Michael Fassbender, Gemma Arterton, Ryan Reynolds, Gina Rodriguez and Lake Bell.
