Films - Sundance Film Festival: London

Sundance Institute and Picturehouse have announced the dates and opening feature for this year's Sundance Film Festival: London...

Press Release

The tenth edition of the Festival is set for 6th - 9th July 2023 with SCRAPPER receiving its UK premiere on Thursday 6th July at Picturehouse Central in London. The film won the World Cinema Grand Jury Prize: Dramatic when it had its world premiere at Sundance Film Festival in Utah in January.

SCRAPPER writer/director Charlotte Regan hails from London and was BAFTA nominated for her first short film, Standby. Charlotte is a Sundance Ignite Fellow and was named as a 2020 Screen International Star of Tomorrow. SCRAPPER, her debut feature, stars Harris Dickinson (Beach Rats, Triangle of Sadness) and newcomers Lola Campbell and Alin Uzun. Theo Barrowclough produces, and the executive producers are Michael Fassbender, Eva Yates, Farhana Bhula, Conor McCaughan, Daniel Emmerson and Jim Reeve. The film was financed by BBC Film, BFI and Great Point Media, and developed with the support of Creative England and the iFeatures scheme.

The film follows Georgie, a dreamy 12-year-old girl, who lives happily alone in her London flat, filling it with magic. Suddenly, her estranged father turns up and forces her to confront reality.

Charlotte Regan said, “Opening Sundance Film Festival: London is insane and not something we imagined getting to do. I'm so, so excited to bring the film to UK audiences and to get an extra step of the film's journey with the legends at Sundance."

The film will receive its UK premiere on Thursday 6th July at Picturehouse Central. There will be additional festival screenings of the film between 6th - 9th July at Picturehouse Central. Picturehouse Entertainment will release the film into UK cinemas on August 25th 2023.

Clare Binns, Managing Director, Picturehouse said, “We are delighted to welcome the hugely talented Charlotte Regan to Sundance Film Festival: London. It is thrilling that SCRAPPER is opening the 2022 festival in her hometown - and this original and terrific film will set the tone for a wonderful weekend filled with films, an exciting industry programme and some special events all happening this July at Picturehouse Central.”
