If you are missing the festival this year, fear not! I will be covering all of the events from the inside. Even though the weather is supposed to be ridiculously low compared to prior years, I will bundle up and head out to bring you all of the scoop on the parties, gifting suites, celebrity sightings and of course the main reason we flock to Park City this time every year, the films.
Last year I saw some really awesome stuff: (500) Days of Summer, Mary and Max, and An Education. This year I am really looking forward to seeing Holy Rollers, Teenage Paparazzo, Hesher, High School and The Runaways. The great thing about Sundance is you never know who you might be sitting next to in the audience, could very well be one of the stars in the film or the director!
In addition to seeing films, I will be running in and out of the famous Sundance gifting suites. So that I don’t feel guilty after indulging in all of the yummy food in the lounges and hot chocolate at the Lift, I will need to get my workout in at the Nintendo Lounge. Then I’ll be off to the Village at the Yard to see what this year’s gifting suites have to offer. Last year they were pretty damn amazing, but I’m thinking this year just may top it. Fred Segal Fun was definitely my fav and I can’t wait to go back there and see what’s hot amongst celebs and Sundance goers this time around. I’m really looking forward to the Sephora suite and checking out their new products and looks for the season. New this year are the Oakley House and Gen Art lounge. No matter what time of day, these places will be packed with celebs, people in the industry and Sundancers drinking, eating, gifting and having a great time. Not a shabby way to spend a few days.
Once the sun goes down, I’ll make my way over to one of Park City’s famous restaurants and out for a long night of films and parties. I don’t know how I’ll be able to fit in the Gen Art parties, Twitter House, Tao, and Harry O’s for live performances but I am up for the challenge.
Check back next week for all the scoop. Off I go!
