The line-up has been announced for Sundance Film Festival: London 2024, which will run from 6 to 9 June at Picturehouse Central in London.

There will be 11 feature films screening along with additional shorts, including Indian coming-of-age tale Girls Will Be Girls, which won the Audience Award at this year's Utah edition. Other highlights in the line-up include the tragicomic Sasquatch Sunset - starring Riley Keogh and Jessie Eisenberg as you've never seen them before (or are likely to see again) - and Norwegian arthose zombie chiller Handling The Undead.

The festival previously announced that the festival will open with the UK premiere of Irish-language Kneecap and close with the UK premiere of Dìdi.

Eugene Hernandez, director, Sundance Film Festival and Public Programming said: “We’re delighted to return to London to celebrate independent cinema with British audiences. Over the course of four incredible days at Picturehouse Central we’ll share an extraordinary array of discoveries from January's Sundance Film Festival in Utah, showcasing the boundless creativity of visionary filmmakers, and featuring mesmerising performances and compelling documentary subjects. We hope you’ll join us!”

Clare Binns, managing director, Picturehouse Cinemas added: “It’s one of the best line-ups we’ve assembled for Sundance Film Festival: London. I can’t wait to introduce audiences to these incredible films. Join us and our wonderfully talented filmmakers at Picturehouse Central in June.”
