Cubs at Sundance
Date posted: 11.01.2007
The Sundance Film Festival (18 – 28 January) kicks off next week. Tom Harper’s Cubs, one of Film London’s PULSE digital shorts, is amongst the films screening this year.
The force behind the festival, the Sundance Institute, was founded by Robert Redford in 1981. This not-for-profit organisation is dedicated to independent film, new work and the development of artists.
The festival which is held annually in Park City, Utah, and is considered the premier US showcase for American and international independent film.
Cubs will screen as part of ‘Shorts Program III’. It has five dedicated screenings in different venues between 19 and 27 January.
The film follows the story of Ben and Davis - young, impressionable teens who are keen to join a local gang. The dark subject matter is complimented by an edgy filming technique and strong lead performances.
As well as screening at the festival, Cubs will also be streamed on Sundance Online.
Sundance Online is an integral part of the Sundance Film Festival and extends the festival to a growing international audience. Interviews with the film-makers, daily coverage from Park City, as well as podcasts and exclusive articles will be available through this digital medium.
