Actor turned film-maker Robert Redford has launched Sundance London, a four-day culture festival which will take place at the O2 next spring.

The festival, which will run from 26-29 April, will include films and live music acts, which the actor says will bring the "very best in current American independent cinema" to the UK.

Redford founded the Sundance Film Festival, which takes place annually in Utah in the US, in 1978 to promote independent film-making.
