Sundance Industry Office

Presented by IMDbPro

Since its debut in 2005, the Sundance Industry Office (SIO) has provided accredited members with the necessary tools and resources to navigate one of the world’s most dynamic festival markets and further a range of creative goals. Each year, more than 1700 members of the independent film industry attend the Sundance Film Festival from all over the world. 

Prior to the Festival, our members have the opportunity to register to purchase SIO Festival passes and ticket packages. These are the only products available for sale that include access to Press & Industry screenings. During the Festival, members continue to enjoy exclusive services through our office at Festival Headquarters and online.

Festival Format for SIO Attendees

The 2023 Sundance Film Festival will include in-person and online attendance options for SIO members, and we look forward to seeing the professional community back on the mountain! In addition to the return of in-person Press & Industry screenings in Park City, the full Festival program will be offered online to attendees accredited through SIO, and encore screenings of award-winning films will be shown both in theaters and online.

In-Person Festival
All feature films, Short Film Programs, and Indie Episodic selections will premiere first in Festival theaters in Utah, followed by repeat public screenings throughout the Festival dates. Feature films in competition will each have a Press & Industry screening, usually within 24 hours of their Park City premiere. All other films will be scheduled for P&I screenings as space allows. P&I screenings run January 19-27 at the Holiday Village Cinemas and Park Avenue Theatre.

Online Screenings
While only a portion of the Festival program will be available online to public audiences, professional attendees accredited through SIO enjoy access to all feature films online with no geoblocking or capacity limitations. The timing and duration of each feature film’s online screening window is dependent on the viewer’s pass type. Short Film Programs and Indie Episodic selections will be viewable online for the duration of the Festival. Just like in-person P&I screenings, online screenings for the professional audience will not include Q&As or audience award voting. New for 2023, all SIO pass types have VOD viewing access with no ticket selection or advance reservations required.

SIO Pass and Bundle Descriptions

SIO passes are designed for attendees to participate in-person and online, with a small number of online-only passes available. First-Half passes encompass January 19-25 and Second-Half passes run January 25-29. Passes for the full duration of the Festival (including an Industry Pass for in-person P&I screenings) will also be for sale. Please note that a 3.5% service fee will be added at checkout to the Early Registration prices listed below.
