The Sundance London Film and Music Festival is set to return to The O2 from 25-27 April. In addition to a multitude of film screenings and events, the festival will host an expanded filmmaker development programme.
John Cooper, the Director of the Sundance Film Festival, said in a statement, “We look with great excitement to hosting the third Sundance London in April. In keeping with the event’s purpose of celebrating independent artists, the Short Film Competition and workshop allow us to tap into the vibrant artistic community in the UK and connect that work with audiences at the festival.”
The short film competition enables UK-based filmmakers to enter original films three to five minutes in length, with the winning entry screening at Sundance London. The winning filmmaker will receive free accommodation and some additional prizes.
Entries will need to reflect the theme of ‘Making a go of it’: stories about moving forward in life, love or loss and the pursuit of inspiration.’ Submissions can be documentary, animation, live action, comedy, drama or any other preferred format or genre. They will accepted until 3 March via www.sundance-london.com.
Ticket packages go on sale tomorrow at 10am (GMT) through the same website. Sundance Channel Global is the lead partner for the festival, which is a partnership between Robert Redford, Sundance Enterprises, Sundance Institute and AEG Europe.
