Each year, The Sundance Film Festival draws thousands of film buffs to Park City, Utah and serves as the premier showcase for independent films.
For the third year, Bing is the official search engine for Sundance and the Bing team will be traveling to Sundance to set up the Bing Bar, last year’s hottest destination at Sundance. The Bing Bar will host a star-studded line-up of diverse events, offering an inside look at the films, people, and music that make Sundance so unique. Featuring speaker panels, happy hours, film premier parties, after-hour parties and much more, the Bing Bar celebrates the best of Sundance.
Last year, the Bing Bar featured exclusive performances from Florence and the Machine, Janelle Monae, and Cee-Lo Green; film parties for soon-to-be hits like Margin Call, My Idiot Brother and The Ledge; and a range of speaker series featuring Susan Sarandon, Robert Redford, Forest Whitaker, Jeremy Piven and more. Demi Moore, Liv Tyler, Paul Rudd, Adrian Grenier, Chelsea Handler, Kevin Spacey, Emma Roberts, Shaun White, Ashton Kutcher, and Elizabeth Banks were just a few of the stars that hung out at the Bing Bar. Check out the video.
