Sundance Film Festival

Jan 19, 2017 - May 22, 2017 10:05 am - 5:00 am
Park City, Utah

Started by Robert Redford in 1978, the Sundance Film Festival was created to attract more filmmakers to Utah. Nearly 40 years later, Sundance hasn’t just attracted more filmmakers to Utah, but it is the largest independent film festival in the U.S. and only the Cannes Film Festival in France can compare in scale. Thousands of actors, directors, producers, screenwriters, and celebrities make the trip to scenic Park City each January to watch the premier of their films and gather together as contemporaries. Downtown Mainstreet in Park City transforms from a quiet artsy getaway to a modern hang-out spot for 10 days of film screenings, concerts, parties, and seminars. If you need to take a break from all the movie viewing and need to stretch your legs for a bit, you are only minutes from hitting the world-class slopes that hosted the 2002 Winter Olympics.
