In spite of the freezing winds, slushy snow and crazy hours, more than 2,000 volunteers have come from all over the world to work at the Sundance Film Festival. Regardless of their diverse backgrounds, Senior Manager for the Volunteer Program Melissa Bowers said, they’re like a family and this year they’ve outdone themselves.

The Sundance Film festival isn’t just for movie lovers and industry pros.  They’re offering more music than ever this year in a variety of venues.  Music events start this Friday and will run daily through next Friday.  Carolyn Murray has more:

Leslie Thatcher

The Sundance Film Festival isn't just about film - and one of the programs - New Frontier - continues to expand the way we tell stories. KPCW's Leslie Thatcher has a preview of this year's program.

On today's program, Leslie Thatcher speaks to Sundance Transit Manager Brian Cambria. Erik Esquivel is the new Latino Community Outreach Specialist for the Park City School District. He talks about projects he's working on. Tom Kelly with the US Ski and Snowboard Association has the weekly team update and Snyderville Basin Recreation Director Brian Hanton is in with his monthly update.

If you've been eagerly waiting for that email notifying you of your time slot to purchase tickets as part of your Sundance film Festival ticket package, you'll have to wait a bit longer. Those who purchased ticket packages to the 2017 Sundance Film Festival were supposed to be able to log onto their accounts on Tuesday and learn what time they could return online to purchase their individual tickets.  But that hasn’t happened. Sundance has since sent out emails informing their patrons of the technical issues.

A sequel to Al Gore's environmental documentary "An Inconvenient Truth" will kick off the 2017 Sundance Film Festival — 11 years after the original film debuted in Park City. Rick Brough has more.

The Sundance Institute has unveiled its line-up of 66 films set for competition at the 2017 Sundance Festival. The films are set for the Dramatic and Documentary programs and the festival's Next section. Festival organizers also said a number of environmental films will be part of the New Climate program, inaugurated this year. Rick Brough has more.
