How Locals Can Enjoy The 2024 Sundance Film Festival

Tickets for the 2024 Sundance Film Festival are now on sale. This year marks the festival’s 40th year and, with it, some new ways for local Utah residents to experience the hallmark event.

There’s a little bit of something for every appetite, whether you’re a diehard indie film buff, or more of a casual movie fan who wants to stick to events in Salt Lake City…Because, let’s face it, not everyone wants to schlep up to Park City in the dead of winter to fight for a parking spot to catch a random premiere. However, some of us most certainly do, and they will also arrive early to every Beyond Film discussion or filmmaker Q&A they can squeeze into their schedule. (Those conversations are really cool, too. To get an idea, check out the Beyond Film line-up from last year’s festival.)

With the 2024 Sundance Film Festival still a few months away, the festival has not yet released programming details, but we have details on the tickets packages that are on sale right now.
