The Sundance Film Festival
(January to February): Celebrating independent filmmakers, Sundance is a favorite Park City tradition for locals, visitors and celebrities.
Each year, the Sundance Film Festival team reviews thousands of independent films from all across the world

The mission of the Festival programming team is to find features and documentaries that "inspire, challenge, delight, startle, move and thrill" viewers.
