While the time to order full festival passes has come and gone, Nov. 6 marks the first day Utah residents can go online to register for a time slot Jan. 5 - 6 to purchase individual festival-screening tickets. Slots will be randomly assigned -- not first-come, first-served -- so everyone doesn't need to race to be first to visit Sundance.org/tickets. Registration will continue through 5 p.m., Dec. 17. Those who register will receive their assigned time on Dec. 20
This marks the first year in which the process will take place entirely online, so those early mornings at the Trolley Square or Park City box office can become a faint memory. You can, however, pick up the free locals-only tickets to the post-Sundance "Best of Fest" screenings at the box offices beginning Jan. 12.
