British absurdist comedy Brian And Charles won the Audience Award at Sundance London .

Jim Archer's film, which follows the adventures of a lonely inventor (David Earl) and his robot creation (Chris Hayward) is due for release in the UK on July 8.

The four-day festival also hosted the UK premiere of Halina Reijn’s SXSW title Bodies Bodies Bodies as its surprise film.

The event came hot on the heels of the announcement that current festival director Tabitha Jackson will leave her role at Sundance next week. There has been no reason given for her departure and Sundance London marked her first in-person event due to Covid. The Sundance Institute said that long-serving director of programming Kim Yutani will join the senior leadership team.
