As part of Sundance Film Festival: London, Picturehouse Cinemas are sharing the love across the rest of the UK with a tour of three films, A Love Song, Free Chol Soo Lee and Good Luck To You, Leo Grande.
The feature films are touring in cities nationwide, and Bristol is no exception – they’ll be hitting our very own Watershed from 9 to 12 June.
Tickets for Watershed’s Sundance UK screenings in June will be available over the coming weeks from the Picture Cinemas’ website.
Exciting things are happening for #SundanceLondon.

There’s something for everyone here – A Love Song (pictured below), Max Walker-Silverman’s heartfelt romance, tells the story of two childhood sweethearts, now both widowed, reuniting after 40 years apart.
Free Chol Soo Lee (pictured below) is the real story of the eponymous Chol Soo Lee – a Korean immigrant wrongly convicted of murder in 1970s San Fransisco, told through the perspective of journalist K.W Lee, archive footage, and the words of Soo Lee himself.
Finally, Good Luck to You, Leo Grande (pictured below) is an uplifting comedy starring Emma Thompson herself as a retired schoolteacher looking for adventure, Nancy – and follows her blossoming relationship with sex worker Leo via three fateful rendezvous.
Not only does your ticket grant access to the film screenings themselves, but all three events will be accompanied by recordings of live Q&A sessions with the filmmakers, produced exclusively for Sundance.
The films are screening between from 9-12 June, and tickets will go on sale soon at the Picturehouse Cinemas website, where you can also still buy tickets for the main festival in London.
Watershed is one of Bristol’s most important cultural hubs, boasting three cinemas, a studio, a café and a bar. Head to their website to find out more about the venue.
