The U.K. offshoot of the Utah fest is returning to the Picturehouse Central.

The Sundance Institute has set to the dates for the fifth edition of its U.K. offshoot, Sundance Film Festival: London. 

The event is set to take place May 30-June 2, 2019, and will return to the Picturehouse Central cinema for the third time. 

Last year's event saw 12 films selected from the original festival in Utah, including the U.K. premieres of Idris Elba’s Yardie, Paul Schrader’s First Reformed and Desiree Akhavan’s The Miseducation of Cameron Post. The audience favorite award was presented to Bo Burnham for his directorial debut, Eighth Grade, and Amy Adrion was the recipient of the first ever #WhatNext award for her documentary Half the Picture.

Seven of the 12 films in the 2018 program were directed by women.
