Sundance Institute welcomes more than 124,000 attendees every year and it is spread out across three locations; Park City, Salt Lake City, and Sundance Resort. This annual mixer kicks off in a few months and if you plan on attending the Sundance Film Festival 2020, then you must know how to make the most of this festival while you can.
Sundance Film Festival submissions are already on the go and like every year, we are expecting to see a whole lot of thought-provoking performance by our industry experts. The 2019 Sundance Film Festival event schedule was presented to the public back in December 2018 so we are hoping it will take some time before Sundance 2020’s schedule is unveiled.
In order to help out those who will be attending Sundance 2020, we reached out to those who attended Sundance 2019 and the 2018 Sundance Festival so we could prepare all those attending for what’s to come.
Take a look at all the below-mentioned points and make up your mind. You don’t want to end up wasting your money and time only because someone wasn’t there to guide you.
Select Your Location
First things first, select your location. Sundance Film Festival location must be selected beforehand with regards to where you will be spending most of your time. Each location is separated by a 30-75 minutes’ drive. So, choose screening tickets of Sundance movies from the location you will be staying at.
Make map your essential accessory
With the help of the Sundance festival map, you will be aware of every theater, venue and shuttle route. These printed program guides are available at the Sundance theaters and venues. You can also access this map through the Sundance Film Festival mobile application available on the AppStore and Google Play.
Shuttling in Park City
If you plan on attending the Park City film festival, then the shuttle is going to be your best friend throughout the fest.
Public parking is not available at Sundance Park City locations but you can make use of the free shuttle services. These shuttles will take you to every venue and every theater in town plus you will also get a chance to socialize.
Sundance Institute initiated the shuttle service for the ease of the attendees. The huge crowd makes it impossible for driving your own cars to be an option. One can never find parking in Sundance Film Festival and waste the entire day just by traveling.
Sundance Institute is a believer of cinematic experience. There is nothing that can be compared to the joy of discovering a new filmmaker or a movie with a crowd of independent movie lovers. But the craftsmanship of a filmmaker cannot be honored if the silver screen isn’t capable enough to show all the minutest details.
At Sundance Utah, each theater is outfitted with Dolby Digital Sound and movies are projected with Barco D – Cinema Projectors. It will be an experience of a lifetime.
We suggest you arrive 45-minutes before the screening begins so you can get settled in a timely manner. If you have your ticket, you should be present at line 15 minutes before the scheduled time because if you’re not there, your seat will be forfeited.
Sundance Film Festival tickets are available on concessions at most of the theaters once the festival begins.
Don’t forget to visit venues
If you are a credential holder, you must not forget to visit the venues of the Sundance Film Festival because that is where the off-screen fun takes place.
Each of the venues at the festival offers a wide array of services and programming to all the Festival credential holders. You should visit the headquarters and then get ready to have an experience that you will never be able to forget.
Visit box offices
If you have made a booking online for the Sundance Festival, you should visit the box offices at Salt Lake City, Park City, and Sundance Resort to pick up your order. You can also exchange your tickets and redeem vouchers at the box offices.
Every year, a joint Emergency Alert Program is initiated between the Sundance Film Festival and Park City. This happened at the Sundance Film Festival 2019 and proved to be highly beneficial for the attendees.
With the help of these alerts, you get all the information regarding traffic incidents, road closure, and weather conditions. You can sign up for this program and get all the information you need through alerts.
So, this is how you will fest at Sundance 2020. We know how anticipating it can be to know who the Sundance winners will be once the festival begins. But we will have to wait sometime before we know who takes the biggest awards home this year.
Sundance Film Festival winners gain global recognition. It’s a huge opportunity for all the emerging filmmakers to show the world what they are capable of. We hope you enjoy your time at the Sundance Film Festival 2020 and make sure to check back with us for more updates.
