The Sundance Film Festival, a program of the Sundance Institute, is an American Film Festival that takes place annually in Utah. Held in January in Park City, Salt Lake City, and Ogden, as well as the Sundance Resort, the festival is a showcase for independent filmmakers.

Sundance is not only known for the films that thousands flock to watch, but the events and gifting suites. Annually- the who’s who in media, publicity, and marketing come to Sundance to showcase new products and new trends while those can enjoy film making.

TR Suites an annual hospitality lounge catered to celebrities, producers, and young film makers offers a lounge equipped with snow gear for him and her, beauty services for anyone getting ready for a premiere dinner/junket, and tasty bites. This year Talent Resources introduced a few brands I had never known of, but now will purchase when grocery shopping.

Avocados of Mexico offered suite attendees a variety of bites made with Avocados- brownies, chocolate cookies, salads, and dips all made with Avocados. But the most interesting was the Maria Verde drink they were serving. Think of it as an avocado bloody mary- strange right?, but so yummy. Check more of their recipes here- (Pictured above)

TR Suites also offered their guests Luvo Lyfe Kitchen bites- Who knew microwaveable food could taste this good. LUVO Food was founded on a simple, but powerful idea: we should love our food. Love how it tastes, love what it does for our health, and love how it supports a more sustainable planet. Their quest to create a chef-inspired, restaurant-quality menu that arrives at fantastic flavor the wholesome way—with nutritious, quality ingredients, and no artificial additives or preservatives in a take home package/ frozen meal. At the lounge they served warm soups- perfect for Sundancers in the Utah cold. (Pictured above)
