We get it—sometimes life gets in the way of you making it to Park City to attend the Sundance Film Festival in person. That's why we provide plenty of ways that you can follow along with everything happening on the mountain over the next two weeks. Here at, we’re working hard to present you with video, social, and editorial coverage of exciting premieres, panels, and live music happening in Park City during the Festival. Keep reading for the 411 on all the ways we’re bringing the Festival to you direct from Utah.


This year, we'll be livecasting both of our Power of Story events. Here's everything you need to know before you tune in to our YouTube channel.

  • Power of Story: Just Art (2:30 p.m. Saturday, January 25): Artists including Lin-Manuel Miranda, Ai Weiwei, Julie Taymor, and others will discuss the nature of artwork as a catalytic cultural and sociopolitical force.
  • Power of Story: The People Speak (3:00 p.m. Thursday, January 30): Inspired by the work of the late historian Howard Zinn, this event brings to life, through readings and songs, the voices of rebels, dissenters, and visionaries from our past—and present.


Our team of writers will be dispatched all over the Festival to cover film premieres, Q&As, panels, and VR projects during the 10 days of the Festival. Visit for the latest stories coming out of Park City, and make sure you’re signed up for our newsletter—it’s an easy way to ensure that you don’t miss daily highlights from the 2020 Festival.


In case you missed it, on January 26, for the first time ever, we’re bringing a simulcast Q&A, Festival screening, and filmmaker introduction to 10 theaters across the United States. Tickets to see The Climb—director Michael Angelo Covino and co-writer Kyle Marvin’s tale about a toxic but friendship—are on sale now.


So you think you know a lot about the Festival and Sundance Institute, huh? Put your knowledge to the test every day on our website—people who play along from home will have the chance to win a bag of limited-edition merch.


Speaking of which, you can snag 2020 Sundance Film Festival merch from the comfort of your couch. We've got tees, jackets, mugs, totes, hoodies, pens—you name it. Make sure to get yours before it's gone!
