Tisch on Main at Sundance 2020

Tisch on Main at the Sundance Film Festival

In addition to our annual Tisch Alumni Party, we will host TISCH ON MAIN for the third year, an exclusive and cozy second home on Main Street for alumni to rest, recharge, and meet other alumni during the first weekend of the festival.

Alumni are invited to stop in for one of our hosted meals, or come during open hours and host a meeting, network with fellow alumni, or take a break from the fast pace of the festival at one of Park City's oldest and most beloved restaurants, The Eating Establishment.
