Joseph Gordon-Levitt will serve as host for the 2013 Sundance Film Festival Awards Ceremony on January 26. The event will be live-streamed from Park City, Utah. Gordon-Leviit's feature directorial debut, "Don Jon's Addiction" will also premiere at the festival out-of-competition.

Sundance director John Cooper states;

“Joseph Gordon-Levitt’s accomplished and original artistic perspectives have contributed greatly to Sundance Institute and the independent film community. 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.”

Gordon-Levitt, who last year starred in "The Dark Knight Rises," "Looper," "Premium Rush" and "Lincoln," has appeared in seven films at Sundance over the years, among them "Mysterious Skin," "Brick" and "(500) Days of Summer." Additionally, his short "Sparks" played in 2009 and he brought an installation in 2010 through his hitRECord online production company.
