I’ve long wanted to make the trip to Sundance for a bit of snow, some great indie cinema and the hope of bumping into Zooey Deschanel. Now I don’t need to wait so long as Robert Redford has announced that in 2012 we will get Sundance London.
Running from April 26 to April 29, 2012 at The O2 the mini festival will also include debates, panel discussions and music alongside “very best in current American independent cinema”.
This is very exciting news (trust me, you should be excited) and will allow some films their only screening in the UK. It’s just a shame that the mini-festival isn’t until next April, rather than next month.
Whether the rather clinical O2 will manage to capture the magic of Sundance is yet to be seen, I hope they can afford a big enough snow machine.
