ROUGH CUT (NO NARRATION) The third Sundance London film and music festival was launched on Thursday (April 24) at the ballroom in the Langham Hotel in central London. Organisers unveiled a selection of the film makers who will be showing their films over the three days of the event at London's The O2. Overall there will be 21 feature films and 18 short films shown across five sections, including 'Fruitvale Station'. 'Fruitvale Station' is Ryan Coogler's first feature film and it not only won awards in Cannes and Sundance, but has also won prizes at Toronto, Santa Barbara and Zurich film festivals. It also won several prizes during award season, including Movie of the Year at the AFI Awards. It also has a rating of 94% on the critic website rottentomatoes.com. His next film looks set to be 'Creed' - a story which is inspired by the successful 'Rocky' franchise. "It's a weird film, that's the best way I can describe it. It's basically about Apollo Creed's family. That's the best way to describe what it is in a nutshell so yeah, it's looking at a family that's been affected by a loss of someone who's been really important to them and where they're at now," Coogler said.
