DIRECTV Lodge presented by AT&T Includes Pop-Up Dining Experience with Craig’s, Variety Studio and More

AT&T* is returning as the official Multichannel Video Programming Distributor sponsor of the 2018 Sundance Film Festival and is premiering the DIRECTV Lodge. To help showcase the very best in film and entertainment, AT&T and DIRECTV will take over Heber & Main, the space formerly known as Zoom, on Main Street Jan. 19-22, 2018 for an all-new, redesigned culinary meets entertainment hotspot for filmmakers and talent called DIRECTV Lodge presented by AT&T.

This year, DIRECTV Lodge presented by AT&T will host The Variety Studio. The studio will feature interviews and portraits with the festival’s top A-list actors and filmmakers. AT&T and DIRECTV will also host daily lunches for celebrities and tastemakers, premiere parties and cast dinners for some of the festival’s most coveted titles. The Lodge will feature classic American cuisine from Craig’s, the famed Los Angeles restaurant known for celebrity sightings.

In addition to all of the events by invitation only, festival guests will have the opportunity to stop in for hot chocolate in a cozy space open to the public, featuring high-speed Wi-Fi and access to the DIRECTV app and content through tablets, phones and TVs.

Since 2012, DIRECTV has been co-financing films for VOD/PPV platforms and will be active again this year in selecting films for co-financing at the Sundance Film Festival.
