Virtual edition of London’s Sundance Film Festival announced

London’s Sundance Film Festival is going digital amid the current health crisis and will host a virtual edition of their event.

Due to take place next month, the three-day annual celebration will officially move online between August 7-9.

With the usual panel discussion and filmmaker Q&As, London’s Sundance Film Festival will also feature premiere films such as Boys StateLuxor and Uncle Frank.

“Due to restrictions around international travel and ongoing uncertainty across the globe, it makes sense to take the festival online,” Clare Binns of Picturehouse said of the new event.

“While it won’t be exactly the same without all of our invaluable partners and film teams from across the world spending the weekend in Picturehouse Central, we’re incredibly excited for this new project, and hope that audiences enjoy the best of independent film from their homes.”

Sundance director Tabitha Jackson added: “Although we will not be gathering in person, the power of the work remains undimmed and we’re eager for it to reach audiences in the comfort and safety of their homes.”
