Indie film fans assemble! This year’s Sundance London line-up has been announced

The 11th Sundance London hits the West End this summer and the line-up to the UK’s key indie fest has just been unveiled.

Screening at Picturehouse Central in June are 11 films, a programme of UK shorts, and, of course, the fest’s ever-popular surprise screening. 

It all gets underway on June 6 with raucous Irish Gaelic hip-hop docudrama, ‘Kneecap’ – Belfast’s answer to ‘Patti Cake$’ or ‘8 Mile’ – and wraps on June 9 with Sean Wang’s Taiwanese-American coming-of-age story ‘Dìdi’.

Bold cinematic voices are core to the fest’s philosophy and this year they’re provided by the likes of non-binary filmmaker Jane Schoenbrun (‘I Saw the TV Glow’), Shuchi Talati (‘Girls Will Be Girls’), and Londoner Chiwetel Ejiofor (‘Rob Peace’).

Here’s the full festival line-up of fiction features and documentaries:

  • ‘Dìdi’ (Sean Wang)
  • ‘Girls Will Be Girls’ (Shuchi Talati)
  • ‘Handling the Undead’ (Thea Hvistendahl)
  • ‘I Saw the TV Glow’ (Jane Schoenbrun)
  • ‘Kneecap’ (Rich Peppiatt)
  • ‘My Old Ass’ (Megan Park)
  • ‘Rob Peace’ (Chiwetel Ejiofor)
  • ‘Sasquatch Sunset (David and Nathan Zellner)
  • ‘Your Monster’ (Caroline Lindy)
  • ‘Skywalkers: A Love Story’ (Jeff Zimbalist)
  • ‘Never Look Away’ (Lucy Lawless)
