IFH 214: Sundance Film Festival Survival Guide

Sundance Film Festival, Slamdance Film Festival, Blackmagic Design Workshop

Sundance Film Festival Survival Guide

This year will be the sixth time I’ve been to the Sundance Film Festival and I’ve picked up a few tips and tricks on how to survive the experience. I’ve many many mistakes when traveling to the festival. From the wrong shoes to not having Chapstick. These small things can turn into nightmares if not done correctly.

I teamed up with Adam Bowman from Media Circus (listen to his past IFH Podcast Episode here). Adam is a true veteran of the Sundance FilmFestival, this year being his seventeenth outing. Between the both of us we have you covered.

Also if you want to get a behind the scenes / backstage pass to the Sundance Film Festival check out #crashsundance during the festival to see all the inside stuff we are creating from the festival.

Take a listen and take some notes. Enjoy and I hope to see you at the Sundance Film Festival this year!
