Joseph Gordon-Levitt is set to host the 2013 Sundance Film Festival Awards Ceremony.
The Looper star, who made his directing debut at the 2009 Festival with the short film Sparks, will take the stage on Jan. 26 in Park City to headline the feature film ceremony (the prizes for short films will be distributed at a separate event). The entire ceremony will be live-streamed on the Sundance website.
“Joseph Gordon-Levitt’s accomplished and original artistic perspectives have contributed greatly to Sundance Institute and the independent film community,” John Cooper, Director of the Sundance Film Festival, said in a statement. “As host, he is sure to add flair to our Awards Ceremony in similarly exciting ways, and we are thrilled that he will join us in recognizing outstanding achievements at this year’s Festival.”
The Sundance Film Festival runs from Jan. 17 through Jan. 27 in Utah.
