Not only will Joseph Gordon-Levitt make the masses swoon as host of the upcoming Sundance Film Festival feature film Awards Ceremony, but he will signify a great deal of relevance while he does it.
The prominent actor, writer and director is set to endure the below-freezing Utah weather as the host of the ceremony on Jan. 26, which will be live-streamed in its entirety on the Sundance website.
The annual event is known to commemorate the well-regarded in independent films — a realm that Gordon-Levitt knows well.
This year, in addition to hosting the ceremony nearing the close of the celebration, Gordon-Levitt is also premiering his feature directorial debut, “Don Jon’s Addiction” –– a story about a porn-addicted person as he tries to become less selfish.
Gordon-Levitt made his directing debut with the short film, “Sparks,” which premiered at 2009’s Sundance Festival.
Gordon-Levitt is also an Artist Trustee of Sundance Institute and has appeared in seven films at the Festival, including “Mysterious Skin,” “Brick” and “(500) Days of Summer.”
As someone who finds such solace at Sundance, Gordon-Levitt is expected to bring great things to the event.
