Daniel Radcliffe, Casey Affleck, Rooney Mara join big-name stars heading to Utah for next year's festival, which boasts record number of female directors

It may be world famous for independent film-making, but – judging by its lineup for 2013 – the Sundance film festival is not short on grand ambition when it comes to blockbuster idols and award-season darlings. Organisers revealed yesterday that Daniel Radcliffe, Octavia Spencer, Casey Affleck, Rooney Mara and Jessica Biel will all feature in next year's haul at the event founded and made famous by Robert Redford.

Radcliffe appears as the poet Allen Ginsberg in Kill Your Darlings, set in the aftermath of the 1944 murder of David Kammerer by beat crowd alumnus Lucien Carr, who claimed Kammerer had been stalking him. John Krokidas's film also stars Ben Foster as William Burroughs, Jennifer Jason Leigh as Naomi Ginsberg, Elizabeth Olsen as Edie Parker and Jack Huston as Jack Kerouac. »
