Add another title to the line-up for the 2014 Sundance Film Festival — and the first title for the Sundance London Film and Music Festival, too.

Sundance organizers today announced the addition of the film “Lambert & Stamp” to the slate of films playing in Park City this month — bringing the tally to 120 feature films.

Sundance also announced that the film would screen at the third Sundance London Film and Music Festival, set for April 27-29 at the O2 in London.

The film, running in the Documentary Premieres section and directed by James D. Coooper, tells the story of Chris Stamp and Kit Lambert, two fledgling filmmakers in ‘60s London eager to make a movie about the English rock scene. They found their subject in an energetic young band, The High Numbers — a band the pair would eventually manage and take to international stardom under a new name: The Who.

“Lambert & Stamp” has its first screening Monday, Jan. 20, at 11:45 a.m. at The MARC Theatre in Park City.
