Midweek Sundance ticket update

Alisha Self, Of the Record staff

As the 2010 Sundance Film Festival enters the final stretch, there are still opportunities for locals to catch a flick or two.

According to Linda Pfafflin, senior manager of ticketing and customer service at the Sundance Institute, there are tickets available for several screenings as well as the Anna Deavere Smith panel on Thursday. Tickets can be purchased online at http://festival.sundance.org/2010/boxoffice or in person at the box office.

The films that are garnering high praise include "The Runaways," "Blue Valentine," "Smash His Camera," "Restrepo" and "Catfish," said Brooks Addicott, associate director of media relations.

A few filmmakers have also received offers for their films, Addicott said. Among the films that have been sold are "Buried" and "Waiting for Superman."

Although the buzzworthy films’ remaining screenings are likely sold out, locals and festival-goers are encouraged to take advantage of waitlist and day-of-sale options.

Each morning at 8 a.m., the main box offices in Park City and Salt Lake City release a limited number of tickets to that day’s screenings. These tickets must be purchased in person and are not available online or by phone.

To be added to a waitlist, filmgoers can show up at the theatre of the screening they wish to attend two hours before the scheduled show time. Those who receive waitlist numbers must return no less than 30 minutes before the screening time to line up. Waitlist tickets will be sold for $15 (cash only) in sequential order.

Locals’ tickets to the Best of Fest screenings, which are scheduled for Feb. 1, have already been distributed, but there will be a waitlist option for that as well, Pfafflin said.

Pfafflin said that she cannot comment on overall ticket sales or festival attendance at this point.

For questions about ticketing, email FestivalTickets@sundance.org or call the customer service hotline Monday through Friday from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. at (435) 776-7878.
