Park City becomes Utah’s own “little Hollywood” during the week of Sundance Film Festival. The festival lasts two weeks and is full of movies, musics, panels and parties. On average, 46,660 people attend the festival.
Celebrities roam the streets of Park City while fans follow. I talked to one of my friends who attended the festival and she told me this: “I just walked into a coffee shop and saw Nick Robinson (starred in Love Simon etc.) just standing in line.”
The stars were up in city supporting their movie’s premiere. One of the more famous films that premiered this Sundance was “Extremely Wicked, Shockingly Evil, and Vile.” It is a film about Ted Bundy, shown through the eyes of his girlfriend Liz Kendall. Zac Efron was the main star in this film, so a lot of fans were up in Park City enjoying his movie and trying to catch a glimpse of the famous actor.
The movies at Sundance are usually controversial documentaries, just like the one about Ted Bundy. It brings a unique crowd and lots of argumentative reviews and reports.
All the films are competing for five different titles. US documentaries, world documentaries, shorts, spotlight and premiere. The competition is good, but the movies are even better. So grab some popcorn and head up to Park City for the Sundance Film festival next year 2020.
