London, 23 April 2024 - Picturehouse and the nonprofit Sundance Institute announced today the lineup of 11 feature fiction and documentary films, a specially curated programme of UK short films and a strand of repertory titles to celebrate the 40th edition of the Sundance Film Festival in the U.S. for the 11th edition of Sundance Film Festival: London 2024, taking place from 6 to 9 June at Picturehouse Central.

These 11 feature films premiered at the 2024 Sundance Film Festival in Utah in January and were specially curated for London by the Sundance Film Festival programming team in collaboration with Picturehouse. The Festival previously announced that it will open on 6 June with the UK premiere of writer and director Rich Peppiatt's raucous and infectious Irish-language film, Kneecap and will close on 9 June with the UK premiere of D di ( ) written and directed by Academy Award-nominated filmmaker Sean Wang.

In addition to those award-winning opening and closing night films, the Festival presents a full programme bursting with buzzy hits from established and first-time feature filmmakers, across narrative film and documentary. These titles are: Sasquatch Sunset by acclaimed directors David and Nathan Zellner, starring Riley Keough (Mad Max: Fury Road, American Honey) and Academy Award nominee Jesse Eisenberg (Zombieland, The Social Network); Rob Peace, Chiwetel Ejiofor's adaptation of Jeff Hobbs' bestselling and critically acclaimed biography; monster rom-com Your Monster, Caroline Lindy's wholly original debut; Megan Park's fresh coming-of-age journey of self-discovery My Old Ass starring Maisy Stella (Nashville) and Aubrey Plaza (Emily The Criminal); Jane Schoenbrun's second feature, I Saw The TV Glow; Shuchi Talati's Girls Will Be Girls winner of the 2024 Sundance Film Festival Audience Award: World Cinema Dramatic and World Cinema Dramatic Special Jury Award for Acting presented to Preeti Panigrahi earlier this year. The list is rounded off with Thea Hvistendahl's chilly, disturbing Handling The Undead from Norway, winner of the 2024 Sundance Film Festival World Cinema Dramatic Special Jury Award for Original Music presented to Peter Raeburn at this year's Festival, starring Renate Reinsve (The Worst Person In The World). The documentaries include Skywalkers: A Love Story by multi-Emmy award winning filmmaker Jeff Zimbalist and Never Look Away by Lucy Lawless in her directorial debut.

Once again, the line-up includes a short film programme that is dedicated to UK productions, highlighting some of the amazing talent in the Short Film art form, in films either produced with the UK or made by filmmakers based in the UK. The program comprises seven titles: Good Boy, Alo, (S), Essex Girls, Mamu, Salone Love and Sh (Snake).

This year's programme will also see the return of the ever-popular Surprise Film. Festival goers will have a special chance to catch an unannounced title not yet seen in the UK. The Surprise films in previous years included Bart Layton's American Animals, Halina Reijn's Bodies Bodies Bodies and Geremy Jasper's Patti Cake$.

In a year that celebrated the 40th edition of the Sundance Film Festival in the United States, Sundance Film Festival: London 2024 will also showcase highlights of Sundance features and shorts presented over the years in its repertory strand. Those exciting blasts from the past will be announced in coming weeks.

Eugene Hernandez, Director, Sundance Film Festival and Public Programming said: We're delighted to return to London to celebrate independent cinema with British audiences. Over the course of four incredible days at Picturehouse Central we'll share an extraordinary array of discoveries from January's Sundance Film Festival in Utah, showcasing the boundless creativity of visionary filmmakers, and featuring mesmerising performances and compelling documentary subjects. We hope you'll join us!

Clare Binns, Managing Director, Picturehouse Cinemas added: It's one of the best line-ups we've assembled for Sundance Film Festival: London. I can't wait to introduce audiences to these incredible films. Join us and our wonderfully talented filmmakers at Picturehouse Central in June.
