2007 Sundance Film Festival

Somehow the Sundance Institute got my address and mailed me an informational brochure about the 2007 Sundance Film Festival. From the outside cover it looks like next year’s theme is either an out of control inferno, the sun exploding or an asteroid hitting the earth. 2007’s jingle is “Energy. Passion. Film.” The festival will be held January 18-28 in Park City and Salt Lake City, Utah.

Spend $5 and register online between 9:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. 9/12 through 10/14 if you’re interested in purchasing festival or ticket packages. You’ll be entered in a lottery and on 10/18 you’ll be assigned a purchase date, time, password, web address and phone number to use to order your package. Non-transferable or replaceable packages for the general consumer are:

Festival Passes ~ include credentials for admission to the Sundance House at The Kimball Art Center, Filmmaker Lodge, Film Center and the Music Cafe.

  • Express Pass A (January 18-23) $3,000. Choose your screenings when you get to the festival. No ticket selection required. Admission to all public screenings, theaters and panel discussions.
  • Express Pass B (January 24-28) $2,800. Same as above. Plus admission to the Closing Night film on January 26 and Awards Night party on January 27.
  • Adrenaline Pass (January 19-28) $400. No ticket selection required. Admittance to all public screenings 10 a.m. or earlier or 10 p.m. or later. Virtually all American dramatic features in the Independent Feature Film Competition screens at least once during these hours. Includes the Awards Night party.

Ticket Packages ~ include same credentials as the Festival Passes.

  • Ticket Package A (January 10-23) $750. Choose a total of 20 tickets to regular screenings and/or panel discussions. Limit of 4 tickets per event. Includes admission to the Opening Night Reception. Opening Night screening tickets are very limited but can be selected if they are available during your ticket selection time period. You make your ticket selections based on availability in early January before the festival begins.
  • Ticket Package B (January 24-28) $650. Same deal. Obviously opening night doesn’t apply. Includes admission to the Awards Night Party.

Utah Residents ~ you get all sorts of special ticket selections and passes. Go directly to www.sundance.org to figure it out. Sundance really needs help with their online information management.

As for normal folks wanting to buy movie individual tickets I suggest you pay $5, register online and try your hand at getting a good lottery number. Individual ticket lottery registration opens between 9:00 a.m. and 5:00 p.m. 12/11 through 12/29. You get assigned a purchase time, etc. during the second week of January.

Last year mine was 01/14, I believe, and was essentially worthless… all that was left was weird midnight screenings in Salt Lake. Check back later for tips on what to do if you get a sucky purchase time… and why even go to Sundance in the first place.
