PARK CITY, Utah — Sundance Film Festival will now require all attendees to have booster shots, in addition to a first round of the COVID-19 vaccine.
Before Thursday, Sundance required proof of vaccination and masks. Additionally, those working the festival as staff, talent, and press are required to test negative for COVID-19 48 hours before they arrive.
On Thursday, another health safety provision was added. Those attending the 2022 film festival during the dates of January 20 – 30 will need to have had a booster shot as well, if they hope to keep their seat.
