Sundance London, the UK edition of the Sundance Film Festival, will not be held in 2015.

Established in 2012, the event – which would have marked its fourth year in the UK – “presents a cross-section of films fresh from Sundance Film Festival” and has been held annually in London’s O2 arena.

A spokesperson for the U.S. festival told realscreen that no final decision has been made about the future of the event and that the Sundance Institute is “still actively working to host Sundance London again as soon as possible.” A reason for the cancellation of this year’s event was not provided.

“We loved connecting with the vibrant community of filmmakers and audiences in the UK, and following a successful three years with the O2, we continue to explore our options for Sundance London,” said a spokesperson in a statement. “Though we are not confirmed to host public events in London this year, we hope to be able to return very soon.”

Last year’s installment of Sundance London took place from April 25 t0 27 and featured four documentaries, including Alex Gibney‘s Finding Fela, Ben Cotner and Ryan White’s The Case Against 8, Todd Miller’s Dinosaur 13, and Dan Cutforth and Jane Lipsitz‘ Under the Electric Sky.
