Sundance Film Festival 2020 – What you should know before you go


Sundance film Festival

Sundance Film Festival – Tips for Navigating Sundance – January 23-Feb 2, 2020

It’s official—we’re only one week away from the start of the 2020 Sundance Film Festival.

Sundance Film Festival has been synonymous with Park City for over 30 years. As the festival evolves each year, whether a local or just visiting Park City, it’s essential to keep up with the latest insights on ‘how to Sundance’ to make the most of #Sundance2020

And while you’ve probably glanced at the program, booked your lodging, started looking at your outerwear options, and cleared out your biggest suitcase in anticipation of your flight to Park City, we know from experience that there are plenty of things people tend to overlook in the lead-up. For that reason, we’ve compiled some tips and tricks for making the most of your time during #Sundance in Park City.

Dining during Sundance

While Park City’s Historic Main Street is the undisputed social center for pre- and post-movie entertainment, seasoned Sundance attendees know to seek out eating establishments located closer to the many screening locations throughout the area. It’s important to get to film screenings early, so dining AFTER a screening and near the theater is a great way to save time. Here are a few ideas:

Skip the Car Rental
We recommend booking an airport transfer from Salt Lake City International Airport, or utilize your hotel’s shuttle, and leave the driving to locals.  Uber and Lyft work overtime during the Festival.

Prepare for the Weather
Temperatures in Park City this time of year tend to hover around 12°F and 33°F during the day, so don’t be tempted to pack light.

Eat Well and Stay Energized
As several colleagues have pointed out, when you’re rushing between screenings, it can be hard to find time to eat—which is probably fine on the first day of the Festival but won’t feel so great by the end. Some words of wisdom?

Plan Out Your Schedule
There’s an art to planning the perfect Sundance Film Festival schedule for yourself, and to master it, you’ve got to think about the distance between venues (“Allow at least 45 minutes to get anywhere,” says Brenda) . Luckily Sundance has an “app for that” (available in the App Store and Google Play) that can make things way easier, especially when you’re on the go. “The Sundance app’s eWaitlist works,”  just make sure to show up to the venue at least 30 minutes early once you get your waitlist number.  Learn the process and stay positive, it’s incredibly common for those on the waitlist to get in. Many ticket holders will not plan ahead and will therefore miss manage their time and miss their screening.

e-Waitlist tips

  • Download the App and Register Now
  • e-Waitlist is Cash Only
  • Try for earlier films, many people will stay up late and miss morning screenings.
  • Know the seating capacity of the theater, the larger the theater, the more chance of available seats for the waitlist.

See the Sights in Salt Lake City
Locals are already hip to the fact that we host a ton of our screenings and events in Salt Lake City (as well as at the Sundance Mountain Resort).

Avoid the Festival Flu
Yes, it’s a thing. That’s why our volunteers recommend staying hydrated and starting a vitamin regimen ahead of your arrival at the Festival.

Hit the Slopes
The Festival period is a great time to hit the slopes, as many of the guests in town are attending screenings. It is not uncommon to feel that you have the ski mountains completely to yourself during the ten-day festival.

And Don’t Forget the Basics
Park City sits roughly at 7000 feet altitude so you will want to bring the following:
• Water bottle to fill up OFTEN to stay hydrated.
• Lip balm
• Lotion
• Eye drops
