Edge is at the Sundance Film Festival where he has been introducing Lian Lunson's 'Leonard Cohen I'm Your Man'.

Rufus Wainwright, Wim Wenders and Gina Gershon were also in the house for the screening as Edge gave Lian's film a warm introduction. Later he attended a reception in Lian's honour where we also spotted Nick Cave and Stuart Copeland.

If you don't know about the film yet - which features a great live performance by U2 with Leonard - we couldn't put it better than the Sundance website which says:

'If you've ever been a Leonard Cohen fan, Lian Lunson's movie will be irresistible. If you've never listened to Leonard Cohen, you will be struck by something ineffable, sensual, and deeply truthful in his music and person. A riveting tribute concert and artful biopic combined, Leonard Cohen I'm Your Man is an exquisitely drawn, revelatory portrait of a songwriter, poet, and philosopher who has long been out of the public eye.'

Edge adds that in the film, Cohen "comes down from the mountaintop with the tablets of stone."

We'll bring you more news as we get it.
