The 2020 Sundance Film Festival is scheduled to run from Jan. 23 through Feb. 2.

Before filmmakers and industry insiders, “people in black” and celebrities converge on Park City, Salt Lake City and Sundance Resort, Utah residents get the opportunity to buy their film festival ticket package and passes on Tuesday, Oct. 15, two days before the general public.

Utah residents will have three options:

• The $500 Locals SLC Pass. Passholders will have access to all Sundance screenings in Salt Lake City, with priority entrance, and an official festival credential.

• The $300 Locals 10 Ticket Package. Those who purchase this package will get 10 tickets to the films and venues of their choice, along with two official festival credentials.
