Sundance is approaching — roll out the survival guides!

Even if you didn’t have a calendar, you’d still be able to tell that the Sundance Film Festival is about a week away from kickoff from the flurry of “How to Survive Sundance” articles that appear in media outlets across the country in the days before the festival. These helpful articles offer advice on navigating everything from theaters and ticket sales to parties and parking lots. Some even offer tips on what snacks to pack, what clothes to wear and which people to chat up. Most useful to those of us looking on from home are the ones that tell you how to enjoy the festival without ever leaving the glow of own computer. Now that’s handy!

Be sure to satisfy all your festival needs with the latest buzz, top stories, and celebrity interviews from Sundance Channel’s coverage of the 2011 Sundance Film Festival.
