Life in Utah is good. Life in Park City and along the Wasatch Back is just pure art. Evidence? The Sundance Film Festival.
Jan. 17-27, Utah will play host to some of the most artistic souls on earth. If you had a Park City home or a Sundance home, you’d already be in the middle of the action! The Sundance Film Festival touts original artists to adventurous audiences. Imagine, if you will, a pristine winter mountain setting brought to life by:
- dramatic and documentary films
- shorts films
- New Frontier films
- panel discussions
- dynamic music events
Sundance Film Festival was born of forward-thinking, art-loving people in 1985. The festival has helped launch hundreds of films. Many of those films have gained “critical recognition, received commercial distribution, and reached worldwide audiences eager for fresh perspectives and new voices,” according to the festival’s official website at www.sundance.org.
Today the Sundance Institute announced the films selected to screen in the out-of-competition Premiers and Documentary Premiers sections of the 2012 Sundance Film Festival. Screenings will take place in Park City, Salt Lake City, Ogden and Sundance, Utah.
John Cooper is director of the Sundance Film Festival. In a public statement he expressed pleasure over the number filmmakers in the festival’s Premieres and Documentary Premiers sections that have returned this year. He said the returning artists indicate “sustainability, longevity and personal reward to careers in independent film . . .”
Films in the U.S. and World Competition, Spotlight, Park City at Midnight and New Frontier have also been announced.

Park City vacation homes and Sundance luxury homes are extremely popular among artists of all kinds; but, you don’t have to be an artist to love the awe-inspiring Wasatch Back with something new to offer every season.
