The second Sundance Film Festival spin-off in London has revealed its line-up, with Robert Redford once again at the helm of the event which originally started in Utah.

"Our philosophy is to give a representation of not just the programme we did in Sundance Utah, but also a representation of what is happening in the independent film scene in America," said Sundance Festival director John Cooper in a statement. "We have so many to choose from, so we look for how they play with audiences as well as what sort of buzz they create," added Trevor Groth, the event's director of programming.

Those quotes suggest a lot of variety, and there certainly is that. However, the line-up misses out a few big names, including the biopics of Apple founder Steve Jobs and porn star Linda Lovelace, starring Ashton Kutcher and Amanda Seyfried respectively. Both had their premiere at Sundance at Utah in January, but London is very much the smaller brother of the American event, with Kill Your Darlings, starring Harry Potter’s Daniel Radcliffe as beat poet Allen Ginsberg, also not being shown.

Robert Redford's Sundance will be back in London

What is included are documentaries on Eagles and Peaches, with Peaches playing live to celebrate that. In a statement, Robert Redford said "We would hope for Sundance London to be another Sundance experience - lively, culturally relevant and fun. We look forward to engaging with audiences as we discover new voices, new points of view and new perspectives."
