Robert Redford has included one of his own films in his Sundance Film Festival for the first time.

The festival opens on January 15 and runs for a week near Redford’s home in Park City, Utah.

The film, which will be shown as a work-in-progress, also stars Helen Mirren and Willem Dafoe.

Other films Redford has approved for screening at the festival include Dogville, Lars Von Trier's controversial stylised drama, which stars Nicole Kidman as a woman who seeks sanctuary in a small Rocky Mountains town during the Depression.
