Sundance Institute has always believed in making this event accessible to the general public which is why they always publish Sundance Film Festival schedule way before it happens.
Sundance Film Festival 2020 schedule isn’t out yet and hopefully will be released on December 2019.
But, how about we share some details on navigating through the schedule once the festival begins and how you can make the most of your time while you’re in Utah.

You need to pick your location and start searching for movies that you wish to see. There are many feature films, documentaries and short movies being screened at the event. It is completely up to you regarding which screening would you preferably go for.
Or you can just pick out a movie and make sure you are there once the screening begins.

Leave early, plan ahead and make sure you add travel time into your schedule if you are going to Park City. The parking situation near Salt Lake venues and Sundance Resort is easy to understand but it is very busy on festival days.
But the parking around Park City is a no-fun-zone. You will not find any parking in the area so it will be a waste of time if you go on your own transport.
Lucky for you, the organization knows how much of a hassle this entire scenario is which is why the Sundance Film Festival bus schedule is issued for the ease of the visitors. You will be traveling on a shuttle which won’t cost a thing and brings more fun to the plate once you have arrived at Park City.
You can park your car either at Ecker Hill Park and Ride at 2500 Kilby Road or Richardson Flat Park and Ride because both of these parking lots are the nearest to the Park City’s largest venue, Eccles Theater. Parking is also free at the mentioned parking lots which are why we suggest you park your vehicle there and then you can take a free shuttle and begin your journey around the venues.
You will also find volunteers at every shuttle stop to help you out with your locations and guide you further. All the Park City venues have been mentioned below and the Park City bus schedule Sundance will be available to you daily on your mobile application.
