For the past few years N and I have bought locals ticket packages for the Sundance Film Festival. We like to avoid the crowds up in Park City and go to screenings in Salt Lake. Not as many directors/actors attend the shows in Salt Lake as they do in Park City so there aren't as many Q&A sessions afterward but not having to drive an hour each way in horrible weather + deal with parking = worth it. Every year it's been a lot of fun and it's great to see movies that we wouldn't get the chance to see otherwise. It's also a nice break to spend some time one-on-one with N after the craziness of the holidays.
However, we decided not to get a ticket package this year since the festival runs from January 20th-30th and my due date is January 31st. Instead we're going to buy individual tickets to a couple screenings that hopefully fall closer to the 20th than the 30th.
If you're a local and you're interested in tickets this year don't forget to register for a time slot to buy tickets. Registration is free and everyone who registers will be randomly assigned a time slot to go to the box office and purchase tickets. You have until next Monday the 20th to register here.
