Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)

What are the best days to attend the festival?

The Sundance Film Festival is slightly different to many other film festivals in that the schedule is largely broken down into two parts: the first five days and the second five days. All festival films are screened at least once in each period, and both ticket packages and festival passes are geared around this division.

The festival is normally busiest during the first period, and pass/packaged for this time tend to sell out first. Not that those for the second period sit on the shelf for long either!

Generally it isn't too important which period covers your Sundance visit, unless you want to go to the awards ceremony, in which case you obviously need to choose the second. It's currently not possible to purchase a single pass for the entire festival (other than an industry pass).
