Accreditation for the 2022 Sundance Film Festival
The Sundance Institute Press Office grants press accreditation to a limited number of journalists. Due to limited supply, we may be unable to accredit freelancers who are not on assignment.
The Standard Press Application (and Press Inclusion Initiative Application window) closed on November 5, and Late Press Applications were accepted from November 29-December 10. Notifications were sent on a rolling basis.
This year the Festival will be taking place online and accrediting accordingly. For those who are accredited, we will be providing online-only screening access. General press packages for the 2022 Sundance Film Festival will include access to P&I screenings in addition to additional online screening access. Online screenings require advance ticket selection (opens mid-December); if we did not receive your application in the Standard window (through November 5), we will not be able to offer you this advance ticket selection
