If there’s one thing you don’t want to forget before you head to Park City for the Sundance Film Festival, it’s this: the Sundance Film Festival mobile app. Below, we’ve rounded up everything you need to know about the handy little guide—available for Android via Google Play and iPhone in the App Store. We guarantee it’ll provide you a whole new way to experience the Festival.
Access the Schedule
As always, print film guides will be available throughout the Festival and are a great tool for getting around, but let’s face it, sometimes we all experience separation anxiety from our beloved iPhones. It’s an environmentally friendly way of staying informed, and we’re constantly updating the app to ensure that you’ve got access to the latest and greatest happening on the ground in Park City. You can search films by title, director, category, and country—plus, if you select “What’s Playing Now,” you’ll get a list of films currently screening near you (and directions for getting to the theater!).
Navigate Park City
The application is aware of your current location and can guide you to the nearest theater or box office, so you won’t waste any time getting lost in the snow. If you’re tired and want to spend time in one spot for a while, you can see a full list of upcoming events or film screenings at your nearest venue. A transit map with shuttle routes is also included. The user experience with this application centers on “easability,” as the navigation is very intuitive. The application holds a lot of information, but you are able to choose what information you want to see, so as not to be overwhelmed.
Get the Latest Event Info
The timely function of the application matters most when it comes to attending panels and Festival events because information is often updated (you never know when a surprise guest might pop into Cinema Café). Each event listing includes a photo, description, cost, panelists in attendance, and event type.
Connect on Social
There will be hundreds of people at the Festival discovering interesting things all day. It’d be nice to share those cool finds with the entire Festival community, and fans all over the world. You can connect with the rest of the community through Twitter, Facebook, or Instagram.
