Registration for Sundance 2010 Festival Passes and Ticket Packages is NOW open and closes on 9 October, 2010. Less than a week remains for you to register. Less than a week remains!
IN ORDER TO PURCHASE A FESTIVAL PASS OR TICKET PACKAGE, YOU MUST FIRST REGISTER ONLINE ANYTIME BETWEEN SEPTEMBER 22 AND OCTOBER 9, 2009. After the close of registration, you will receive an email on October 14, 2009 indicating whether or not you were randomly selected to receive a half-hour timeslot. If you receive a timeslot, you will be sent the website link and phone number you can use to purchase your Festival Pass or Ticket Package. Quantities are very limited and registration does not guarantee a timeslot or availability. Purchase dates and times are randomly assigned by a computer.
A FESTIVAL PASS does not require any ticket selection. Patrons simply need to be seated 15 minutes prior to showtime for any film presented within the restrictions of their particular pass dates/locations/time periods. Companions must have their own pass. Festival pass prices range in price from the $300 Film School Pass to the $3000 Express Pass A.
A TICKET PACKAGE requires ticket selection after films are announced. Selection times are during the first week of January. A patron may select one to four tickets per screening within the restrictions of their ticket quantity limits, dates, or geographic locations. And, since all Ticket Packages come with two Festival Credentials, they are ideal for sharing among couples looking to attend the Festival. Ticket package prices range in price from the $200 Credential pass to the $750 Ticket Page A.
NEW THIS YEAR: Patrons may purchase a combination of up to four DIFFERENT Festival Passes and/or Ticket Packages. Each patron is restricted to selecting only one TYPE of Festival Pass, Ticket Package, or Festival Credential per transaction, with a limit of four items total per order. Please note, each Ticket Package will be assigned a unique half-hour timeslot in January to select tickets. For example, you may select your tickets for a Ticket Package A on Monday, but may not select tickets for a Discovery Package until Wednesday.
