The Sundance Film Festival hit the ground running Thursday, with patrons and members of the press shuttling to the Marriot headquarters to request/pick-up movie tickets for this year’s hottest premieres.

Sundance2011 “Our ticket packages sold out earlier this year than last,” noted Linda Pfafflin, Senior Manager of Sundance ticket sales.

“People bought early this year because they knew we weren’t able to use the Racquet Club.”

The 22th edition of the fest, held in Park City, Utah, officially kicks off tonight with the premieres of “The Guard,” “Project Nim,” and “Pariah,” all of which sold out shortly after the box office opened Thursday.

“We actually had tickets for an opening night film this morning!” Pfafflin beams. “But other than that, nothing out of the ordinary.

Some of this year’s hottest ticket demands, according to Pfafflin, are “The Guard,” “My Idiot Brother,” “Miss Representation,” “Being Elmo,” “Troubadors,” “The Last Mountain,” “Red State” and “Salvation Boulevard.”

The Sundance Film Festival runs Jan. 20th-30th.
