Sundance has screened countless films of queer interest, and become something of a favorite winter event with gay A-listers and creative spirits from West Hollywood, New York City, and many other parts of the world. The festival takes place a few weeks before Elevation Utah - Park City Gay Ski Week, which takes place in late February.
Queer Lounge at Sundance:
The gay presence at Sundance received a major boost several years ago with the launch of a pavilion dedicated expressly as a focal point for gays and lesbians during the festival, Queer Lounge. Although the lounge has since been disbanded, there are other resources out there, such as the GLBT newspaper Q Salt Lake, which publishes a very helpful Queer Guide to Sundance Film Festival.
The Sundance website has loads of information on the 2014 festival, including help with finding hotels and arranging transportation; online ticket sales; and the latest information on film screenings and events. For more information on traveling to the area at this time, take a look at the excellent travel website produced by the town's official tourism organization, the Park City Chamber. Another excellent resource is the Salt Lake Convention & Visitors Bureau website.
