Getting Around

Our 10-day Festival hosts more than 40,000 people a year and spreads out across four cities: Park City, Salt Lake City, Ogden and the Sundance Resort. Each city is separated by a short drive (30 to 75 minutes), so make sure to select your screening tickets in the city where you’ll be located for most of the Festival. View the Park City shuttle chart, or download a map of official Sundance Festival venues.

Getting Around Park City

If you are going to be in Park City, there’s one key to navigating the Festival: use the shuttle! It's free and hits every Festival Theatre and Venue. Plus it’s a great way to meet fellow Festivalgoers.
