The one week in a year where hipsters and Hollywood celebs coexist as one in Park City, Utah. Headed to Sundance Film Fest this year to check out some films and event-hop? Airbnb to the rescue! One of the top resources for travel hospitality websites announced their partnership with Impact Partner to host “Airbnb Haus” at Sundance this year.
If you’re headed down to check out some indie films, then look out for #airbnbhaus to host some pretty cool events from January 17th – 25th. Not only will you meet some super inspiring people, artists who have interesting experiences to tell, you’ll also need to check out: an open-mic StorySLAM evening with The Peabody-award winning organization, The Moth, and a midnight show from beloved NY comedian and sketch performer on “Late Night w/ Jimmy Fallon”, Seth Herzog with some very special guests, all within a space that pays homage to a comfortable and cozy lodge.
Airbnb Haus will basically act as a pretty cool spot for people to chillax in. The lodge will have free Wi-Fi, a craft coffee bar, vintage board games, travel guides, sketchbooks and snacks, styled with a light, airy Scandinavian-inspired aesthetic. Partnering with World International Filmmakers, the lodge will provide free housing for up-and-coming filmmakers.
From Ethiopia to Chile, Airbnb will play host to the up-and-coming filmmakers behind the following films: “Difret,” “Happiness,” “Liar’s Dice,” “To Kill a Man,” “Viktoria,” and “White Shadow.” They’ve released a lineup of pretty cool events happening at Airbnb Haus, follow @AirbnbHaus on Twitter for more deets:
