Park City Television Rolls Through Another Festival


Park City Television (PCTV) once again proved why it is THE source for Sundance and Slamdance Film Festival information, as over 10 days, it brought 77 films and 23 musical acts into the studio for live interviews and performances. In addition, our PCTV crew covered over 20 red carpet premieres, seven panel discussions and got dozens of movie reviews from festivalgoers.

“When I’m booking for Sundance, I always go to PCTV first, then CNN,” said one veteran public relations agent. “The hosts are smart, they’ve done their research, and the interviews are really a conversation.”

With three live shows daily (MOUNTAIN MORNING SHOW, IN THE CAN & MOUNTAIN VIEWS), PCTV is must-see television for anyone looking for an in-depth look at festival films. FESTIVAL AFTER DARK features our FESTIVAL MOUNTAIN EXPEDITION segment, which teams filmmakers, actors and producers with a former Olympic athlete and takes them for some outdoor recreation, and THE CUTTING ROOM, which focuses on how social activism, technology and film combine at the festival. SUNDANCE ALL ACCESS sets up at the Filmmaker Lodge to record a number of panel discussions, and SUNDANCE SOUNDTRACK is a sonic explosion of live musical performances. All told, PCTV produced six hours of fresh content each day during the festival.

Sixteen Sundance award winners were guests of PCTV, including the Grand Jury Prize: Documentary (Restrepo), Audience Award: Dramatic (happythankyoumoreplease), Best of NEXT (Homewrecker) and Jury Prize in Short Filmmaking (Drunk History: Douglass & Lincoln). All four major Slamdance winners (Jury & Audience awards, documentary & dramatic) also made live PCTV appearances.

PCTV also welcomed a number of celebrities including: Justin Bartha, Emma bell, Dustin Lance Black, Michael Chiklis, Ari Graynor, Adrian Grenier, Diego Luna, Reggie Miller, Kenny Ortega, David Hyde Pierce, Oliver Platt, Josh Radnor, Jason Ritter and Wilmer Valderrama.

Once again, guests of Park City Television received a gift bag filled with over 30 different products, most of which came from local Utah or other small businesses. “We’ve been listening to the music from the gift bag all week, thanks so much!” said one filmmaker. Music wasn’t all they received however, the bag contained the following:
