The Sundance Film Festival is cracking down on people selling their Sundance screening tickets on eBay. For example, two tickets to the first screening of “Waitress,” starring Keri Russell, sold for $385 on Saturday, 01/13/07. About half an hour later, a second pair of “Waitress” tickets went for $255. However, according to Sundance policy, tickets cannot be resold online, and officials warn that tickets resold online can be remotely deactivated before the film’s showing.
“We’ve contacted those sellers and informed them of our policy and what actions we are taking,” said Patrick Hubley, festival spokesman. “I wouldn’t advise people to buy tickets off of eBay or any other site,” except for the official Sundance site, he said.
Mental note, gang. There will be other screenings, don’t drop the mega-green for a premiere screening when you’ll still be able to see the film later on.
