Despite the glitz, glam and James Franco sightings, Sundance is still about the movies. Buildings all over town are transformed into state-of-the-art theaters: the library, the Jewish Synagogue, and even the Eccles High School Auditorium boasting 1,270 seats. A free shuttle takes you to every screening during the festival. You can purchase tickets online in advance (which sell out fast), or do it like the locals by lining up for waitlist tickets two hours before the film starts. Don’t worry. Waiting in lines is part of the Sundance experience. You’ll meet a multitude of interesting folks in line, from press to projectionists to genuine film nerds. The best part: you’ll see all the premiers before they go wide, and the actors, directors, and producers normally hang around after the screening for a Q&A with the audience.
