The 2012 Gotham Independent Film Awards were held on November 26th and provided more steam for Moonrise Kingdom and Benh Zeitlin’s engines, which is something I am very happy to see.
Teeny, tiny little Quvenzhané Wallis may have missed out on Breakthrough Actor and Your Sister’s Sister may have beat off stiff competition in the form of Moonrise Kingdom and Silver Linings Playbook to take the prize for Best Ensemble, but with so few awards to hand out on the night, there’s not much room for surprise.

My heart is very heavy today. With all the excitement of Sundance London comes the crushing disappointment that I can’t go this year. But, for all of you who can or are going, the line-up for the first ever Sundance London has been announced. And it’s a bit of a cracker.
Held from the 26th-29th April (yep, next month), London’s O2 will be chockfull of music, panels, discussions and, most importantly, movies. And Robert actual Redford is going to be there, opening with ‘An Evening With Robert Redford And T Bone Burnett’ moderated by Nick Hornby. And Placebo are just one of the bands that have been announced so far. Remember when I told you my heart was heavy today…?! It’s an absolutely brilliant move, bringing it to London, and gives us (well, not me this year) a chance to see the films that we’ve heard so much about since the Americans had their Sundance in Park City, Utah, back in January.
14 of the 120 films shown in Park City will be shown in London and, although it’s a real shame Surrogates isn’t in there, it’s great to see such a brilliant selection of documentaries. Check out the full line-up below (all of the film descriptions are taken from the Sundance website, here): Continue reading
