Sundance Film Festival - Park City'Sundance is a celebration for filmmakers, writers, actors, cinematographers and artists - Vincent De Paul, Actor & Producer

 The Sundance Film Festival held annually in the latter half of January in the picture postcard pretty mountain town of Park City needs no introduction. It is easily one of the biggest and the most important independent film festival in the world. Film makers from the US and around the globe, making films in different languages and representing diverse genres consider it a privilege to submit their best creations to the Sundance Film Festival programming team for review.

This year the festival is being held between January 16th and January 26th and like always the who’s who of the Indie films industry will descend on this mining town of yore, and now one of the premier winter resort destinations of the world. Sundance is not just another film festival for what are sometimes called off beat films. It is the film festival for all manner of the best dramatic and documentary films of feature length and short film length. As a matter of fact films first showcased in Sundance often make it to the Oscars. As many as 10 out of the 15 documentaries that have made it to the 2014 Oscar shortlist were showcased at Sundance first.

Is it any wonder then that this festival is on top of the must-attend list of the best independent film makers of the US and other countries of the world? Especially since this is the thirtieth edition of this seminal event. One can imagine the festive and celebratory atmosphere in Park City in those heady ten days when producers, directors, writers, actors, technicians and critics rub shoulders on the quaint Main Street. What’s more if one wants a short break from the intensity of the film festival, some of the world’s best skiing, snowboarding, ice skating and sledding right in the shadow of the majestic Wasatch Mountains.

If you are tempted to head to Park City and revel in the goings on there at the time of the festival, there is not a moment to lose. Though there is a fantastic range of accommodation available in Park City catering to different budgets, it would be a good idea to make the bookings at the earliest. This is peak winter sport season and with the additional traffic expected because of the festival it is best to prepare early.

Getting to Park City is the easy part as it is just a half hour drive away from the Salt Lake City international airport. If one went by road it is just a few minutes from the major inter-state highway I 80. Once there let the magic of Sundance and the spectacular Alpine landscape and the thrill of world class winter sport activities take over.
