Sundance Unveils 2023 Online Platform and Ticketing Details

Sundance is returning to full in-person operations as usual next year — but with an online parallel more accessible than ever for audiences not in Park City.

The sun dance The Institute today announced key aspects of the 2023 Sundance Film Festival (running January 19-29, 2023), including ticketing details, on-sale dates, venues and platform in festival line. As the 2023 festival resumes all in-person operations, an online parallel will be available for audiences not in Park City, Utah. Online screenings begin January 24.

Passes and packages will go on sale to the public starting October 17. Online ticketing packages will be on sale from December 13. Individual tickets for the public will go on sale beginning January 12, 2023. Special pre-sale access to passes and packages is available October 13 for Sundance Institute members at the storyteller and supporter levels, as well than the ticket package for Utah residents. For even earlier access, Sundance Circle donors will be able to purchase festival passes and packages beginning Oct. 4. All members can purchase individual tickets from January 11, 2023.

Brand new for the upcoming festival is the World Cinema Package, available both in person and online. These packages offer fans 10 tickets to international feature documentaries and fiction films on the program. Sundance is also introducing the SLC Youth Pass, which will offer attendees ages 18-25 a discounted $200 fare to experience the festival around Salt Lake City. Back by popular demand, the local package is back. A special offer for all Utah residents, this package includes 10 tickets to in-person screenings for the entire festival with early access to ticket selection before single film ticket sales go public .

The festival will also increase its in-person footprint from last year’s COVID-limited plans, with additional screens in Park City and Salt Lake City.

Meanwhile, the festival’s online platform is now live. The platform includes an overview of all this year’s ticket offers and a comprehensive how-to guide for both in-person and online experiences, with more information to add ahead of and throughout the Festival. Visit for more.

Sundance recently announced that the festival has tapped IndieWire co-founder Eugene Hernandez to lead as director beginning in 2024. He will lead Sundance’s public programming initiatives beginning this fall.
