Registration is not first-come, first-served; timeslots to make the purchases in late October are assigned randomly. Any remaining passes/packages that are not purchased through this process will be available for sale in November - registration will not be required at that time. Passes and packages may be picked up beginning Tuesday, Jan. 18, 2011, a day earlier than previous years. Information can be found at http://www.sundance.org/festival/tickets/locals/.
