A Ghost Story to close Sundance Film Festival: London 2017

David Lowery’s haunting drama is among the highlights of this year’s programme.

Returning to the UK capital for its fifth edition, the 2017 Sundance London Film Festival boasts an impressive programme of features and shorts mostly culled from its parent festival in Park City, Utah.

This year’s festival will open with the international premiere of Miguel Arteta’s Beatriz at Dinner, and will close four days later with the UK premiere of David Lowery’s A Ghost Story, starring Casey Affleck and Rooney Mara. In our first look review we describe the film as a “quietly haunting tale of loss and redemption”.

Lowery will be attending the festival to take part in a special ‘In Conversation’ event, where his acclaimed debut feature Ain’t Them Bodies Saints will also screen.

Elsewhere there’s UK premieres for Marianna Palka’s Bitch, Jeff Orlowski’s Chasing Coral, Craig Johnson’s Wilson, adapted from Daniel Clowes’ graphic novel, and for the first time festivalgoers will be treated to a Surprise Film.

Sundance Film Festival: London takes place 1-4 June at Picturehouse Central. Check out the full programme here.
