Sundance Unveils Latest Details On Tickets, Health Protocols And More At 2022 Fest
The Sundance Institute has released new details about the upcoming 2022 Film Festival in January—including ticket packages, information available on its website and updated COVID-19 restrictions.
The festival will be a hybrid again, with events both in person and online from January 20th to the 30th.
The institute announced it has launched its 2022 festival website, a home base where attendees can explore the program, preview ticket offerings coming in December, watch films and other content, and access a comprehensive how-to guide.
Updating its health and safety protocols, the institute announced that all participants attending events in person must have a full COVID-19 vaccination with a vaccine approved by the World Health Organization.
All vaccinations must be completed at least two weeks before traveling to Utah. The institute said it will provide details about how to show proof of vaccination closer to January.
Sundance will also require that masks be worn at all times in interior spaces, and in queuing lines, including outdoor areas like tents, restrooms and other temporary structures. The institute recommends masks be worn in all other outdoor settings.
The institute announced that package sales will start on December 15th for its Sundance Circle, Storyteller and Supporter members. Package sales for the general public start shortly afterward on December 17th.
Individual tickets are $20. Single ticket sales for Institute members begin on January 5th, and for the general public on January 6th.
Among several passes and packages offered by Sundance, the Festival Package, which has historically been the most popular, costs $750. It offers 10 tickets to in-person or online films plus the benefits of the Explorer Pass, which has online access to the New Frontier program and short films.
The Salt Lake City package, for $500, offers 10 tickets for in-person screenings at four locations in Salt Lake. Proof of a Utah address will be required.
And in contrast to past years, when festival awards were announced on the Saturday of the final weekend, honors will be announced on Friday the 28th. An Award-Winners Package, with access to eight feature-film winners on the final weekend, is $300.
