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

Festival Passes give you priority access and the most complete Sundance Film Festival experience. Wait-listing is another way to see films. 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. Be prepared with cash only for wait-list admittance.


Skiing during Sundance

There are two top-rated mountain resorts (America's largest resort at Park City Mountain and a SKI Magazine readers' choice top resort at Deer Valley) within minutes of the diverse dining and shopping on Park City's Historic Main Street.

If you travel to other film venues, consider Sundance Mountain ResortRobert Redford's cozy getaway in a dramatic alpine landscape. Salt Lake City and Ogden are both gateways to multiple world-class ski resorts with thousands of additional acres. Learn more about planning your ski trip
