After a hiatus due to the Covid-19 pandemic, Sundance Film Festival is back in Salt Lake City this year. The festival is offering both virtual and in-person attendance, but is prioritizing in-person; the festival wants to bring people back to Park City for the experience, though patrons will be able to watch quality films either way. The festival will take place from January 19 – January 29, 2023. The Movie Buff is covering Sundance, brining you full and capsule reviews, interviews, and more.
There are a number of in-person and online ticket options for consumers, but regrettably at this point, most of the packages are sold out. There are still a few remaining: single screening, in-person tickets are still available for $25 each. On the online side, single screening virtual tickets are available, as is the ‘Explorer Pass,’ which unlocks six days of immersive access to online ‘Indie Episodic’ screenings. The online only single film tickets are also still available for $20 a piece. Click here to buy Sundance tickets.
