The Sundance Institute announced this weekend that, for one night only, the 2012 Sundance Film Festival will expand beyond Park City, Utah, with film screenings in "nine cities and theaters across the country."
"Tickets for each screening will be available through the theatre’s box office. The film that will screen at each theatre will be announced in December." Keep reading for more info and the list of participating theaters.
“Every year, our goal with the Sundance Film Festival is to make it an extraordinary event for those who attend, and with Sundance Film Festival USA, we’re bringing the Festival experience to independent film lovers nationwide,” said John Cooper, Director of the Sundance Film Festival. “In many cases, those audiences feel a connection to independent film because of the year-round work of their hometown theatres. Sundance Film Festival USA shows both our gratitude to these theatres for their contributions to the independent film community as well as our support and commitment to helping them grow their existing audiences.”
