The Utah resident has been instrumental in building the largest independent film festival in the United States.

Despite the weather forecast, organizers expect another record year for attendance to Sundance. Celebrities and regular folks share the experience of some of the most artistic and riveting films and documentaries.

The festival will be held this year in Park City, Utah. The 2024 Sundance Film Festival will take place January 18–28, in person and online. You can buy tickets here. Why not check out all the great action before you'll see it in theaters or on a streaming service?  Sundance is back.
