Here’s how to make sure you don’t miss the first personal Sundance since 2020.
The 2023 Sundance Film Festival will be the first fully in-person edition of the landmark festival since January 2020. While Sundance has thrived by offering virtual festivals over the past two years, many of the biggest names in the independent film community had the Official Return to Park City circled on their calendars for months.
This year’s lineup is filled with potentially lively titles from filmmakers like Nicole Holofcener and Brandon Cronenberg. There are also plenty of opportunities for new faces to make a name for themselves, with a whopping 28 percent of films coming from first-time directors. For a more in-depth look at some of the most exciting films showing at the festival, check out IndieWire’s new First Look gallery.
So how do you make sure you don’t miss out on any excitement? Buy your tickets now! Personal ticket packages are currently available to Park City residents and will be on sale through December 16th. Online ticket sales begin Tuesday, December 13 at 10am MT. Tickets for individual films will be available from January.
If you can’t make it to Utah, select films from the festival are also available online. In a recent interview with IndieWire’s Eric Kohn, Sundance Institute CEO Joanna Vicente explained why even in years when in-person events are possible, virtual screenings are still a valuable part of the process.
“We’ve learned a lot over the last two years and we’ve had a lot of success with the virtual festival,” she said. “It was far from ideal, but movies won Oscars, and large audiences who might not be able to afford to come to Park City were able to see those movies across the country. We’re thrilled to be able to come back personally and have this shared experience, but we also didn’t want to forget what has allowed us to survive these few years and bring these films to a more diverse, younger audience that may not be able to afford it able to come to the feast”.
The 2023 Sundance Film Festival will be held January 19-29 in Park City, Utah.
