The Sundance Film Festival is returning to Utah, January 24 through February 3, 2019...., with screenings in Park City, Salt Lake, and the Sundance Resort. Check out the full program of world-premiere films, virtual reality, music, panel discussion, and more at sundance.org/festival.

The last vestige of long lines to get tickets to the Sundance Film Festival is ending. Starting with the 2019 festival, all tickets will be acquired digitally. KPCW’s Leslie Thatcher has more.

Long time Park City residents may remember the long lines that used to stretch down Main Street as locals would like up in the cold and snow to have the first chance to acquire local tickets.

In less than two months, the 2019 Sundance Film Festival will turning Park City into a hive of movie-oriented activity.

Besides the competition films, Dramatic and Documentary, announced by Sundance last week, a slate of 30 Premier films will pack audiences into the Eccles Center, and the Midnight program will freak out movie-goers during the late hours.

The Sundance Film Institute has unveiled its line-up of 112 feature films scheduled for the 2019 Film Festival.

Next year’s festival is scheduled to run from January 24th to February 3rd, in Park City and other locations around the Wasatch Front.

As usual, the heart of the festival is the slate of Competition films for both Dramatic and Documentary categories—with 32 films on hand from the U.S. and 24 in the foreign program.

The Sundance Film Festival starts Thursday, January 24th and runs through February 3rd. Locals can buy ticket packages starting tomorrow. Carolyn Murray has this report:

Utah residents can purchase ticket packages for the 2019 Sundance Film Festival starting at 10 am on Tuesday.   Anyone interested should go on line to www.sundance.org/tickets. Between 10 and noon.


Two special events in early 2019 back to back could prove changing for Park City. The Sundance Film Festival returns as usual next January, but in addition, the World Freestyle Championships will open the second weekend of Sundance. Melissa Allison has more.
