Scene clothes style 2018

Bundle up for Hollywood’s winter ski trip.

A stack of Sundance regulars (Carey Mulligan, Ethan Hawke, Common, Elle Fanning, Jack Black, Armie Hammer) and some more infrequent festival talent (Keira Knightley, Usher, Jonah Hill) will soon be invading Park City, Utah, as the festival begins on Thursday, January 18. We will be right there with them.

For Sundance 2018, The Wrap is riding shotgun with Acura. The auto company is the presenting sponsor of the 2018 festival and will present both the U.S. Dramatic and Documentary audience awards.

In addition to hosting TheWrap’s interview suite and photo studio, the wheels of the fest are sponsoring this very Party Report to help deliver insider party and event coverage.

The lineup looks strong. For film-only purists, check out TheWrap’s preview of the titles making noise already.

For festival attendees who care more for after-parties than midnight showings — a not insignificant delegation of the industry — consider this the social scene lineup reveal.

Here is The Party Report’s curated list of the top invites, select guest lists, and most sought after invites people are seeking in their inboxes.


Note: This is not a comprehensive guide to the parties in Park City. Those laundry lists of hundreds of official and mostly unofficial gatherings are floating around the industry.

Francis Coppola’s Director’s Short Film Competition Screening and Winner Reveal
Holiday Theatre, 1776 Park Ave
Friday January 19, 8:30 p.m.

UTA Sundance

Cinephiles, you are not going to have to wait long for film prizes to begin flying in the mountains.

The six-time Oscar winner’s family winery is the exclusive wine sponsor of Sundance and will be the only (non-sparkling) wine poured at the upcoming 90th Oscars and the Governors Ball.

Here, on the first full day of the festival, Roman Coppola will share the top five films of this shorts festival and reveal the winner. I am going to be emceeing this screening at the Holiday and invited guests over 21 (festival credential or not) can come pick up first-come first-serve tickets beginning at 8 p.m. Bonus: This is one of the only screenings at the festival where wine is permitted inside the theatre. Cheers!

The night will conclude with a premiere viewing of the Tim Burton-esque branded film “The Red Stain” directed by Rodrigo Saavedra. Let’s hope Saavedra’s title refers only to the onscreen action and not any errant dribbles on to your starchy white parka.

Women in Film Cocktail Party
Friday, Jan. 19, 8-10 p.m.
Café Artois, 364 Main Street Park City, UT 84060

Throughout the festival, official partner Stella Artois is putting a spotlight on female-led stories, casts and filmmakers. Those ubiquitous chalices will be raised to those using film and media to ignite social change.   

On Friday night (Jan. 19), Chloe Sevigny’s “Lizzie” cast arrives for a late night post-screening party. The next day, Women in Film continues a big opening weekend by announcing its Film Finishing Fund winners before hosting a panel with leading women producers and directors on “The Road to 50/50,” the initiative to achieve gender parity throughout the industry.

UTA Sundance Brunch
Sunday, Jan. 21, 10:30 a.m.
Location Withheld


These guys have their claws deep in to Sundance, beginning with the “Delta Festival Shuttle” that flies a commercial planeload of industry bigshots to Utah together every year.

The Grey Goose Door Lounge
449 Main Street (across from the Post Office in its old location)
Throughout the Festival

(Above, from 2014, an all time highlight from the Grey Goose space.)

After a two-year absence, Grey Goose’s hospitality returns to Park City. They aren’t wasting any time. Nick Offerman, Sasha Lane, Kiersey Clemons, Blythe Danner and Ted Danson of “Hearts Beat Loud” will christen the space on opening night (Thursday, Jan. 18).

On Sunday (Jan. 21) at 9 p.m., I predict a line snaking down Main St. for the after-party for “Burden.” Garrett Hedlund, Forest Whitaker and Usher are scheduled to celebrate inside before a performance by Common.

Other highlights include the recent Golden Globe and Critics Choice winner Laura Dern’s soiree for “The Tale” (Jason Ritter and Ellen Burstyn co-star) and the “Sorry to Bother You” bash with a buzzy cast. “Atlanta” star Lakeith Stanfield, Tessa Thompson, and Armie Hammer all topline Boots Riley’s directorial debut.

DirecTV’s NFL AFC/NFC Championship Games Viewing Party
Heber and Main (formerly Zoom) at 660 Main St.
Sunday, Jan. 21, 1 – 7 p.m.

Find out who will be going to the Super Bowl two weeks later in (equally freezing) Minnesota. Craig’s, West Hollywood’s paparazzi magnet, caters the food. Remember that DirecTV boasts the Sunday Ticket relationship with the NFL and throws a massive pop concert on the eve of the Super Bowl each year, so this room is looking beyond Park City.

Chase Sapphire on Main’s Heavyweight First Night
Friday, Jan. 19

rooney mara jonah hill joaquin phoenix film

Jonah Hill, Rooney Mara, Joaquin Phoenix, and Jack Black are all expected at the late night premiere party for Gus Van Sant’s “Don’t Worry He Won’t Get Far on Foot.”

This one goes until 2:30 a.m. on the first Friday. Earlier that night, the Pauls (Rudd and Giamatti, not Jake and Logan) will headline the “Catcher Was a Spy” party. Jake Gyllenhaal, Carey Mulligan, Peer Dinklage, Elle Fanning, and Suki Waterhouse are all expected to pour through the space on opening weekend.

Musical Performance Anthony Mandler and John Legend’s Party for “Monster”
Chase Sapphire Space
Monday, Jan. 22 (6-9 p.m.)

Despite “Monster’s” serious storyline of “American injustice” for a black teenager caught up in a deadly crime, the offscreen scene around this entrant in the U.S. Dramatic Competition is buzzy.

Anthony Mandler has directed 15 videos for Rihanna (as well as Taylor Sift, Jay Z, and Drake, among others) and perennial festival creative John Legend is an executive producer in a producer corps that includes Mike Jackson (“La La Land”) and Tonya Lewis Lee (“She’s Gotta Have It”). Jennifer Hudson and Jeffrey Wright are in the billing block. Expect a “surprise performance” and a crowded room at this one.

Reviewing the two preceding entries in this preview, if you get an invitation to anything at this space, you should go.

The Yard
Friday, Jan. 19 – Sunday, Jan. 21, 11 p.m. – late

TAO Sundance 2018 - Invite

Since the nightclub pop-up first moved off its longtime perch under Main Street last year, the dominant late night social hub at the festival has colonized an entire block in Hollywood.

That took its relationship with Hollywood — the industry, not the zip code — to the next level.

TAO Sundance 2017

Speaking of “taking it to the next level,” Tinder is getting in on the action as a sponsor providing a “heated outdoor lounge.” It’s pretty dark in there to begin with, so I’m not sure how or why this is necessary except for waiting for [TAO EXECUTIVE NAME REDACTED] to maybe grant you and your crew access to get inside.

Tequila Don Julio, who have primed relationships with nearly all of the DJs on the bill (above), will grace the VIP tables.

Imagine Dragons’ Frontman Dan Reynolds’ “Believer”
Saturday night, Jan. 20, 11:30 p.m. – late
Café Artois, 364 Main Street Park City, UT 84060

Imagine Dragons Documentary - Believer

Dan Reynolds dives in to the Mormon church’s treatment of LGBTQ youth in “Believer.”

“Believer” documents the Mormon rocker’s investigation of how the Mormon church approaches the LGBTQ community and his creation of LoveLoud, a festival designed to bring awareness and fundraiser for LBBTQ youth.

Co-founder Tyler Glenn (of Neon Trees ) and director Dan Argott are expected to join. HBO has already acquired the rights to the Live Nation-produced doc. Bonus: Hans Zimmer composed the music.

ChefDance 2018
Thursday, Jan. 18 – Monday, Jan. 22

An official festival partner, Mimi Kim hosts a celebration of “food, culture, and people in an exclusive setting.”

Unpacking the glossy aura of “Top Chef” for a boisterous crowd every night, the multi-course dinner party is “event dining” on Main St. Some Angelenos got a sneak preview of this year’s menu at Kim’s L.A. house on Jan. 9, but hundreds more will taste chefs Luigi Fineo (Osteria Venice West) on Friday Jan. 19, Chef Beau MacMillan (Sanctuary on Camelback Mountain Resort and Spa) on Sunday Jan 21., and Chef Brian Malarkey (Herringbone La Jolla, Herringbone Santa Monica) who joins ChefDance for a special evening in support of The Art of Elysium on Monday, Jan 22.

Sorry, folks, Saturday night is reserved for Refinery 29’s “49 Remarkable Women and One Really Cool Dude” event. Some tickets.

    In town a few days ahead of his movie premiere, the rapper was a surprise performer at the second night of the popular pop up nightclub.

    A seated lunch at Sundance? Yes.


    On the busy opening Saturday afternoon, the trio sat at a "head table" while chalices of Stella Artois were scene clothes style 2018 raised by the crowd. The event promoted the film-friendly brew's commitment to Damon and White's clean water philanthropy.

  • Jeremy Renner


    From one Jason Bourne to another...


    Renner was one of the many faces to pass through AT&T's Village at the Lift  on Saturday (Jan. 21).


    The space has become an industry sanctuary this weekend. With minimal red carpet and flashbulb bombast, the photo-free Nobu restaurant and the Jeffrey Best-created "Cabin" restaurant/bar has had the same socially sticky bass line of Soho House.

    There is heat for "the next big things." Before it was over, the fire marshal had to "shut down the door" as a safety issue -- meaning,  nobody could get access regardless of status.


    Honored for "L.A. Times," Morgan was safely inside before the cutoff.

    Meanwhile, up at Park City Live, Tiesto played an "open format" set for film 
    "Before I Fall" and Gen-Z media powerhouse AwesomnessTV's party during Snow Fest.


    Straying far from the four-four house thump, Tiesto pulled from all areas of pop music, weaving together Drake's "One Dance," MØ's "Final Song," Bieber's "Let Me Love You," Yeezus era Kanye, Twenty One Pilots' hit "Ride" and hip hop breakout 21 Savage alongside The Killers and his own hit "Red Lights."  It was a musical #PotLuck.

  • Justin Verlander and Kate Upton


    At Tiesto's next door neighbor, Rock & Reilly's, we learned how it pays to be Kate Upton.  


    At a Golf Digest event with Conde Nast on Saturday afternoon (Jan. 21), the supermodel revealed her first golf lesson came from the late great Arnold Palmer.

    The former "Dexter" star passed through Debbie Durkin's EcoLuxe Lounge -- the sole survivor of the formerly thriving gifting suite industry.


    In addition to providing "hangover, altitude and anti-aging IVs," the organizers focused on promoting their charity partner Shriners for Children Medical Center.

  • Roxanne Shanté


    The hip hop pioneer of the early 1980's (center), who fueled one of the first "rap wars," has a biopic debuting on Sunday, "Roxanne Roxanne," lifting the chorus of an early hit.

    Rothbart stars with "Fargo" Season 1 breakout Allison Tolman in the series "Downward Dog," which premiered its first four episodes at Sundance.

    It's not all motion picture arts and sciences here in Park City. There's also visual arts. Documentarian Spurlock led an artists' panel at the Kimball Arts Center on Saturday afternoon.

  • Fares Fares and 4K


    Only weeks after throwing CES, the Consumer Technology Association set up an array of 4k TV's in a suite on Main Street to make a case to the content community: "Consumers want 4k. Make it."


    In addition to VR -- which is everywhere at the festival -- the second biggest consumer technology distribution topic is 4K. "Directors love it," one of the CTA reps told The Party Report, while hinting that some actors were nervous about being able to see every pore on a face.
