WHAT'S ON

Sundance London is marking the 30th anniversary of its parent film festival with screenings of three of its greatest success stories.

The celebration of indie film and music at The O2 in April will feature Memento, Reservoir Dogs and Winter's Bone at Cineworld.

Festival director John Cooper said, "Independent film is constantly evolving and the films shown at the Sundance Film Festival during the course of our 30-year history are prime examples of that.

"Showing three of our most celebrated films at Sundance London allows us to reflect on the incredible potential of independent film to endure and to inspire countless other filmmakers for generations to come."

Memento launched Christopher Nolan's directing career after its premiere at the 2001 Sundance Film Festival, leading to his work directing Inception and a trilogy of Batman films.

Reservoir Dogs, which was supported by Sundance Institute during production and premiered at the 1992 Sundance Film Festival, propelling Quentin Tarantino's directing career.

Winter's Bone, featured Jennifer Lawrence in one of her first film roles, before she appeared in the Hunger Games series and won an Academy Award for her performance in Silver Linings Playbook.

Sundance also recently announced that Archive would provide the opening night music to mark the world premiere of their film Axiom.

Sundance runs from April 25-27 with tickets for sale at sundance-london.com
