Sundance Film Festival

The largest independent film festival in the United States
Hosted in Park City, Sundance Film Festival is one of the largest independent film festivals in the world. With additional venue locations in Salt Lake City, Ogden and Sundance Mountain Resort, and great access to some of the best skiing in the world, it only makes sense to pair the festival's promising films with more Utah experiences. You could even expand your trip to include some of the top film tourism sites in the western United States.

How to Sundance

Register for eWaitlist, then use your phone to monitor available screenings and check in a couple of hours before a screening of your choice and take your chances at the queue.
