For 2019, Acura is collaborating with IMDb at the Festival for the first time, where filmmaker Kevin Smith will return to host on-camera interviews with leading actors, writers and directors that will serve as the cornerstone of IMDb’s Sundance Film Festival coverage.

The more than 100 Acura MDXs equipped with Advance and Entertainment packages will transport filmmakers, talent, festival jurors and Sundance Institute staff around the Festival. In addition, Acura will feature a full line vehicle display throughout Park City, including the Acura NSX supercar, to highlight the brand’s sponsorship and showcase Acura’s Precision Crafted Performance brand DNA.
Acura Festival Village features an interactive winter wonderland photobooth where guests can capture festival memories. At the Acura Stage, guests will be treated to live music, DJs and refreshments from 4 p.m. to 6 p.m. daily, courtesy of official Festival sponsor Stella Artois.
