The Sundance Film Festival, a program of the Sundance Institute, is an American film festival that takes place annually in Utah. With 46,732 attendees in 2012, it is the largest independent film festival in the United States.
DMovies will cover the whole festival for the first time in locu. Follow our page to keep updated with the highlights and more information.
The 10-day Festival hosts more than 40,000 people a year and spreads out across three cities: Park City, Salt Lake City, and the Sundance Mountain Resort. Each city is separated by a short drive (30 to 75 minutes), so make sure to select your screening tickets in the city where you’ll be located for most of the Festival.
Beginning in the mid-1970s, Japanese-American brothers Bruce Yonemoto and the late Norman Yonemoto produced a body of work that played a central role in establishing video as a viable artistic medium. Working in and around Los Angeles, their single-channel videos deconstructed the narrative tropes and visual vernacular of Hollywood movies, television and advertising during the height of the postmodernist age. Their highly stylised and often campy works use deadpan humour and outsider perspectives to expose the clichés, psychoanalytic strategies, cultural mythologies and forms of audience manipulation underlying the mass media representations that surrounded them. The Hollywood myth of romantic love, its role in the construction of personal desire and cultural memory, and its distance from the reality of psycho-sexual relationships are recurring themes in their work. Figures from the LA art and performance scenes also find their way into a number of the Yonemotos’ videos, which include notable collaborations with the late Mike Kelley, Goldie Glitters and Spalding Gray.
Tate is pleased to present a five-screening retrospective covering the range of the Yonemotos’ joint practice, from surrealist melodrama to soap opera to tragicomic satire. The series also includes a special lecture by Bruce Yonemoto giving insight into his collaborative and independent installations.
Dedicated to the memory of Norman Yonemoto.
Greetings to all you gore-hungry film fans: Horror-on-Sea 2017 is almost upon us!
Having expanded to two blood-soaked weekends, the big news for 2017 is that we’ll be at the Park Inn Palace Hotel for both of them, so you’ll be able to catch your breath in the luxury bar/lounge in between all the screenings.
We have two packed weekends, and we’ve even thrown in a couple of sessions of short films, with our compliments, for early arrivals on the second weekend. All this, plus more filmmakers and actors than ever before makes Horror-on-Sea the fest you cannot miss!
As ever, our famous limited edition Weekend Passes will make sure you get to see everything without busting your wallet – over the two weekends these will save you a whopping £65 over the individual ticket prices. But don’t worry: we also have great value Day Passes for those who can’t take too much horror!

A decade after An Inconvenient Truth brought climate change into the heart of popular culture comes the riveting and rousing follow-up that shows just how close we are to a real energy revolution. Vice President Al Gore continues his tireless fight, traveling around the world training an army of climate champions and influencing international climate policy. Cameras follow him behind the scenes—in moments private and public, funny and poignant—as he pursues the empowering notion that while the stakes have never been higher, the perils of climate change can be overcome with human ingenuity and passion.
Renowned filmmakers Bonni Cohen and Jon Shenk (Audrie & Daisy, 2016 Sundance Film Festival) have taken the baton from 2006 Academy Award–winner Davis Guggenheim. What started then as a profound PowerPoint lecture has become a gorgeously cinematic excursion. Our extraordinary former vice president invites us along on an inspirational journey across the globe that delivers the tools to heal our planet. The question is: Will WE choose to take the baton?
