The Festival opened with the International premiere of Miguel Arteta’s Beatriz at Dinner, and closed with the UK premiere of David Lowery’s A Ghost Story, starring Casey Affleck and Rooney Mara.

For the first time, the 2017 programme included a Surprise Film which gave festivalgoers an exclusive chance to catch an audience hit from that year’s Festival in Park City – this year’s choice was PattiCake$.  The first Audience Favourite award was presented to Icarus.

Filmmakers and talent in attendance throughout last year’s Festival included actress Salma Hayek (Beatriz at Dinner), and directors Miguel Arterta (Beatriz at Dinner), Michael Showalter (The Big Sick), Jeff Orlowski (Chasing Coral), David Lowery (A Ghost Storyand Bryan Fogel (Icarus). Previous editions of the Festival, which has been running since 2012, have welcomed filmmakers, artists and supporters including HRH The Prince of Wales, Michael Fassbender, Gemma Arterton, Ryan Reynolds, Lake Bell, Jimmy Carr, The Eagles, Peaches, David Cross, Rose McGowan, Minnie Driver and Rufus Wainwright. 

The 2018 Sundance Film Festival line-up was announced at the end of November. The 2018 London program will be announced next Spring.
