We won’t lie: The Sundance Film Festival has been good to us. Very good. In 2014, it hosted the world premiere of Richard Linklater’s mighty Boyhood. Then in 2015, it was Brooklyn and the revelatory Saoirse Ronan. Manchester by the Sea knocked us out in 2016. And last year, Sundance delivered the euphoric Call Me by Your Name. The unifying thread? All four of those films ending up topping our respective lists for the best movies of the year. In short, we trust these curators. Time Out will be in Park City, reviewing all the buzziest titles and unexpected sensations. This page is where the reviews will be collected—bookmark it.

This is a pretty easy way to avoid the wait lines, and it’s easy to do. Register to buy tickets on the Sundance website in the fall, and they’ll send you an email telling you when your window to buy advance tickets is. When that window opens up, hit their easy-to-use website and purchase tickets for anything that looks interesting to you. Leave at least two hours between shows in case you want to eat or get in a wait line for a film you don’t have tickets for, and also because Park City can be a bit slow to navigate through using the buses.
