The 2016 Sundance Film Festival #sundance16 is just two weeks away! Got Tickets?
Wondering how to see Sundance movies but don’t have tickets. In fact, the WAITLIST is a classic part of Sundance and worth doing just for the experience. However, as with just about anything these days – “There’s an APP for That.”
New for #sundance16 is the EWaitlist.
What’s the Sundance eWaitlist?
Sundance wants to ensure every seat in every theatre is filled, so prior to the start of each film we sell the open seats to people who have signed up on our eWaitlist. In the past, wait listing a film meant standing in the cold two hours prior to a film. But not this year, the new eWaitlist makes it easier by allowing you to sign up anywhere with an internet connection.
How does it work?
The new, exciting, mobile-enabled check-in system allows festivalgoers to reserve a line position over the internet, and provides self-serve kiosks for those without an internet capable device. Festivalgoers will now have the ability to receive a waitlist number for a screening via any internet capable device. The system also allows festivalgoers to view/manage their check-in and see the likelihood of admittance to the event. It’s an environmentally friendly, paperless solution.
Here’s how to take advantage of this new electronic eWaitlist system:
- Register for the Sundance Film Festival eWaitlist at www.ewaitlist.sundance.org.
- Add a friend – Want to waitlist for a film with a friend? Link your eWaitlist account to a friend’s
- Choose a Film and join the eWaitlist – Two hours before the scheduled screening time for your desired film, the eWaitlist will open and you will be eligible to check-in for a waitlist number.
- Receive your eWaitlist number
- Arrive at the theater at least 30 minutes prior to the screening.
- Good Luck – Waitlist tickets will be sold to the waitlist line in queue order on a space available basis, beginning anytime from 30 minutes before the schedule screening time up until the start of the film. Tickets are $20 and only cash is accepted.
