It's Showtime!
Every year, more than 40,000 people—including 30,000 out-of-state movie-lovers, filmmakers, industry professionals and journalists—descend on Park City for the Sundance Film Festival. They subject themselves to the winter weather of a mountain ski town, and the complex logistics of navigating it, all for the chance to be there when the Next Big Thing is discovered.

Once again, City Weekly wants to help you be part of it. David Riedel looks back at some of the Next Big Things from festivals past to show how many different ways a filmmaking career can twist and turn. We look at some of this year's films through the lens of the books that served as their source material. We also gather years of festival experience to offer tips for how to avoid some of Sundance's most common pitfalls and how to use the festival's online presence to get the most out of your time.

You don't have to be a celebrity for Sundance to be special. Let us help you on a tour through the festival that will make every step feel like your own personal red carpet.
