The daddy of all independent festivals celebrates its 26th edition in 2010. Run in conjunction with the Sundance Institute - set up by Robert Redford to support independent film - it has continued to develop its brief and has this year announced a new section, Next, dedicated to low and no-budget films.

John Cooper is also marking his first year at the helm with a night of screenings across the US showcasing films from the festival at the same time as they screen in Park City.

Got a feature or short film screening at LFF 2008 and want us to review it? If you have a screener, please feel free to send it to us.
