Sundance Film and Music Festival returns to London

The Sundance Festival offers four sensational days of live music and the UK premieres of American independent films, fresh from the 2013 Sundance Film Festival in Park City, Utah.

This year’s film festival boasts, amongst a variety of extraordinary films, Lake Bell’s award-winning “In a World….”, the story of an underachieving vocal coach, who is motivated by her father to pursue her aspirations of becoming a voice-over star, which sets her on a path to change the voice of a generation.

Musically, Sundance London presents a fantastic range of genres, including newcomer Alex Burey, a 17 year old soul singer from Croydon, and Lesley Pike who is known across Northern America and the UK for her engaging and comical live shows of electronic music that hold a hint of a 1980s influence.

Alongside film and music, Sundance London offers a range of special events that are designed to bring a unique experience to festival goers. One such event is the Filmmakers Hub Talk, an exciting opportunity to have a sit down talk with some of the festival’s filmmakers.

The bonus to this amazing experience is that it is affordable: individual screenings cost £14, which includes a booking fee. However, if you’re an avid film enthusiast, you might be more interested in the festival’s packages, such as the sky superscreen pass which is £280.

Just a 25 minute, no fuss train journey to the o2 Arena, DUKES London is a great place to stay while attending this remarkable festival. You can take the opportunity to wind down after the excitements of the day in our famous bar or alternatively you can relax in one of our luxurious suites.
