The festival approaches and I am in the middle of making plans for attending (in addition to all my teaching activities and such). Today, I followed up on lodging in Park City. I am now secure in the knowledge that we will have somewhere indoors to sleep. We have always had very good luck with Deer Valley Lodging (800) 453-3833. I wouldn’t say they’re cheap (about $189 per night, plus tax) but they do have two queen size beds in each room and a kitchenette. While it may sound cheap to mention the kitchenette, the movie schedules and raging crowds at the restaurants make it very appealing to know food is available somewhere.
The film guide is due in December. I’m dying to see what makes it this year. In other years, I have gone the first five days of the festival. This year, when I tried to buy daytimer passes (which used to be good for the entire ten days but are now only good for five), the first five days had already sold out in the first 45 minutes. So, we were forced to attend the last five. I’m thinking it will be fun because some films will have strong word of mouth by then.
