Access to Press and Industry (P&I) Screenings

January 18–January 25

  • The volunteer/staff sign up and line locations will be in the tent of the Holiday Village Cinemas.
  • Volunteers/staff can start signing up on the list at ONE HOUR before the scheduled film start time. They can begin lining up earlier (though this is highly discouraged) but the list will not be started until 1 hour before showtime.
  • Volunteers/staff must provide their credential as proof of their status. Guests are not allowed.
  • Signing up on the list DOES NOT guarantee a seat in the screening.
  • After signing up on the list, volunteers/staff are able to leave the line/theater (and are encouraged to do so); however, they must be back in line by 15 mins before scheduled film start time, and will be lined up in list order. If a volunteer/staff returns to the line less than 15 min before scheduled start time, they will forfeit their place and must queue at the back of the line.
  • Once passholders have been seated, volunteers/staff will be admitted to P&I screenings in list order, on a space available basis and starting no earlier than 5 mins before showtime.
  • Volunteers/staff seated in a screening must remember they may be asked to relinquish their seat in the event of a late arriving passholder. Failure to leave if asked will have consequences.

Please note that the majority of Press & SIO (Sundance Industry Office) passholders attend the Festival during the first half, so those screenings tend to be fuller and we may not be able to accommodate all volunteers and staff that want to attend. 

Waitlist Tickets

January 18–January 28

Use our electronic waitlist system for a chance to get into sold-out screenings. Register at ewaitlist.sundance.org. Check-in for each screening opens two hours before the published start time; you automatically receive a number once you check in. You must be in the waitlist line at the theater no later than 30 minutes before start time. Line up in the order of your waitlist number. If you arrive late, you will forfeit your number and have to go to the end of the line.

You may check in for one event at a time. If you change your mind or want to check in for another screening, cancel your existing reservation and restart the process. Tickets are $30 (plus a service fee of 3.5% plus 35¢ per ticket), payable by card only, and are sold on a space-available basis. Volunteers get FREE waitlist tickets by exchanging a volunteer voucher or by showing their credential. 

Volunteer & Staff Grub Stubs

Grub Stubs entitle a volunteer and eligible employee with a Festival credential and voucher, to 1 menu item at a participating restaurant in Park City and Salt Lake City. More menu items may be added leading up to the Festival. Eligible employees will be provided with Grub Stub vouchers at Employee Check-In.

Not redeemable for cash. Cannot be combined with any other offers or discounts.

Disclaimer: If you have specific or varying dietary restrictions, please plan accordingly for yourself. Not all of our partners offer gluten free/vegan options in their menu options.
