Michael Winterbottom's The Look Of Love will be part of the newly introduced UK spotlight at the second Sundance London film and music festival (April 25-28). Other films in the UK spotlight include Jeremy Lovering's In Fear, Andy Heathcote and Heike Bachelier's The Moo Man and Nick Ryan's The Summit.
As part of the festival's music strand, veteran British composer David Arnold, best known for his five James Bond scores, including Casino Royale and Tomorrow Never Dies, will offer a first-hand look at the composing process – through conversation, clips and various demonstrations of his approach to film and the musical choices that have led to some of his most notable work.
The 'Senses of Humor and Humour: US – UK Comedy' panel will see a group of UK and US actors, comedians and filmmakers unpeel the layers and explore what's behind the American and British brands of humour.
As always, the festival will showcase the best of American independent cinema including Barbara Kopple's Running From Crazy, Lynn Shelton's Touchy Feely, Steve Hoover's Blood Brother and Lake Bell's In A World. In all, 18 features and nine shorts will screen.
Sundance Institute President and Founder 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.”
