Armando's Loop gets Sundance premiere
Satire to debut at next month's film fest
The 109-minute comedy revolves around politicians and bureaucrats from both America and Britain scrabbling around in the build-up to war, with the petty rivalries and cynical career moves of doves and hawks overshadowing the issues of the conflict.
Sundance is the largest independent film festival in the United States, and is vital in creating Hollywood buzz about smaller movies.
In The Loop has been funded by BBC Films, the UK Film Council and Aramid Entertainment.
Meanwhile Ricky Gervais has his first major film award in Hollywood last night, being named best actor in a comedy or musical at the International Press Academy Satellite Awards for his starring role in Ghost Town.
