Sundance Film Festival

The Sundance Film Festival: terrible sidekick for a cowboy, excellent platform for emerging film-makers.

The festival is staged annually in Salt Lake City, championing independent cinema and often catapulting its featured participants to worldwide fame. American Psycho, Reservoir Dogs and Four Weddings & A Funeral all made their debut there. And now, for the 11th year, a little sliver of the festival is making its way over to our shores too, with dozens of films hand-picked by the programmers for a run at the Picturehouse Central cinema on Shaftesbury Avenue.

And they’re judiciously editing the price down for you – because Nudge Members are getting 50% off all tickets, to all shows (just £10 a pop).

  • I Saw the TV Glow Owen is apparently just trying to make it through life in the suburbs when his classmate introduces him to a mysterious late-night TV show – the kind that produces visions of a supernatural world beneath their own.
  • My Old Assa girl taking mushrooms on her 18th birthday experience a vision of her 39-year-old self, played by the sublimely wisecracking Aubrey Plaza.
  • Your Monster – after her life falls apart, soft-spoken actress Laura Franco finds a terrifying, yet weirdly charming, monster living in her closet.

My Old Ass

There’ll be a whole bunch of short films, and there’s also going to be a surprise film too (previous years have included the likes of Bodies Bodies Bodies and American Animals). You can book tickets to individual screenings now, but, since it’s a festival, there’s also the option to go for passes that give you access to multiple films. There’s also set to be a whole programme of industry talks, discussions and masterclasses hosted by some of the most interesting names in the biz, all of which will be announced shortly…

…if you want to hear from some reel professionals.
