One of the film industry’s biggest highlights each year is the Sundance Film Festival in Park City, Utah. Industry professionals, celebrities, and film buffs flock to the wintery event for 10 days of appreciating the best new films in the world. With glamorous industry parties and A-list guest lists, the small town is transformed into a playground for Hollywood and movie lovers across the world.
Whether you have a Festival Pass to attend screenings as you please, or individual tickets for anticipated favorites, there are plenty of ways to make the most of the entertaining week. There are more than 100 films being screened as festivalgoers enjoy their time through attending premieres, industry panels and mingling with the cinema-loving crowd. With categories like Midnight, late night screenings of burgeoning cult favorites, or New Frontier, films that challenge the boundaries of modern cinema, you’re sure to get a sneak peek of what’s hot in the industry with the variety of films for viewing.
With such a large influx of people in the small town, finding lodging in Park City can be a challenge. Those who do snag a room at one of the few luxurious resorts are treated to an elegant stay near the festival. The Sundance Mountain Resort is a favorite, created by actor Robert Redford, and later spawning into the Film Festival itself with Redford as President and CEO. The Stein Erikson Lodge is world-renowned for skiing with lavish dining, spa treatments and entertainment. Ski fans will also enjoy Montage Deer Valley, where they can hit the slopes and cozy up in the extravagant lodging, along with relaxing in the largest spa in Utah.
While the focus of the festival is the films, the party culture is a huge draw as dozens of celebrations go on throughout the week sponsored by big brands and industry players. One of the most known parties includes the annual Tao event, usually totaling three nights of an exclusive nightclub experience. The WME Lounge is known to attract a celebrity guest list along with brands like Nylon, Lyft and AT&T hosting their own festivities.
The MACRO Lounge will be back at Park City for another year of panels and events highlighting up-and-comers in the film industry. A fireside chat with Jada Pinkett Smith will entertain attendees and Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is planning to attend the after party for documentary entry Knock Down the House on Sunday, January 27th. The annual invitation-only Midnight Macro Party will also return and is scheduled for the night of Saturday, January 26th.
