Fodor's Expert Review Sundance Film Festival
For 10 days each January, Park City morphs into a mountain version of Hollywood as movie stars and film executives gather for the internationally recognized Sundance Film Festival, hosted by Robert Redford's Sundance Institute. In addition to panels, tributes, premieres, and screenings of independent films at various venues in Park City, Sundance, Ogden, and Salt Lake City, there are music and culinary events as well.
Book your hotel months in advance. Skip the rental car and use the free shuttle. Park City's legendary ski slopes empty out while the filmgoers pack the screenings, so build in a day of crowd-free skiing.
