All the wheeling and dealing at this year’s Sundance Film Festival, didn’t deter the indie elite from furiously working the party circuit.

With fest’s first weekend more front-loaded than ever with primo pics, execs’ skeds quickly filled up with fetes.

The scene was every party planner’s nightmare as events piled up, going head to head with one another.

Scenesters with little or no official tie to the fest or its films crowded the area, which made navigating traffic on Main Street as well as Deer Valley a snowcapped headache.
