The Sundance Institute will be joining forces with Metroplex, a new multiplex in Kowloon Bay, to present a series of screenings focusing on American indie films. The event, called Sundance Film Festival-Hong Kong Selects, will feature a delegation of filmmakers and will run from September 19-28, according to The Hollywood Reporter.
The program is similar to other satellite events that Sundance, which takes place in January in Park City, Utah, now sponsors in London, along with AEG Europe, and Los Angeles, where the Sundance Next Fest is scheduled to take place Aug. 7-10.
“In our effort to share the best of American independent film with audiences outside the U.S., Hong Kong seemed an excellent location with a rich cinematic history. In partnership with The Metroplex, we look forward to presenting a program of diverse and high quality American independent films,” Sundance Film Festival director John Cooper said.
The program lineup will be announced mid-August, and tickets will go on sale at the end of the month.
