Sundance 2010: Where To Party And Play In Park City

by SARAH KUNST · January 21, 2010

Sundance is a yearly gathering of films, movie stars and swag. More rustic than Tribeca and more American than Cannes, this is a 10 day peek into which celebs make time to ski and which are more interested in loading up on free gear and booze. Of course, there are also movies to be seen. Sundance is a more egalitarian festival, where even students or indie filmmakers with nascent budgets have a chance to break into the collective conscience. Find out where to go and what not to miss if you're Park City bound.
