I’m happy to announce Collider is once again going back to Park City, Utah to cover one of the best film festivals on the planet. Like previous years, we’re going to be posting news from Park City as it happens and we’ll also have tons of reviews and interviews.
Last year, we took the festival to the next level by partnering up with Kia and A-List Communications for a Portrait and Media Studio at the Kia Supper Suite and had tons of filmmakers and actors stop by. Since it went so well, we decided to do it again this year and we’ve already got tons of people booked to stop by including Toni Collette, Viggo Mortensen, Wilmer Valderrama, Julia Louis-Dreyfus, Joe Keery, Aubrey Plaza, Carey Mulligan, Damian Lewis, Sienna Miller, Diego Luna, Jay Pharoah, Emily Mortimer, Andrea Riseborough, Christopher Abbot, Sean Bean, Richard Jenkins, Ed O’Neill, Da’Vine Joy Randolph, Eve Hewson, Alan Ball, Paul Bettany, Sophia Lillis, Ben Whishaw, Ron Howard, Bo Burnham, Brandon Cronenberg, Andy Samberg, Cristin Milioti, Will Ferrell, Zach Woods, Zoe Chao, Miranda Otto, Alison Brie, Molly Shannon, Winston Duke, Zazie Beetz, Bill Skarsgaard, Tony Hale, Benedict Wong, Tom McCarthy, and many more still to be announced.

The Kia Telluride Supper Suite will kick-off the new decade to again command the snow-filled Park City mountain terrain as the premiere hospitality destination celebrating Hollywood’s A-list attending the busy indie film festival in Park City, Utah. The pop-up will again be located centrally on Main Street with a takeover of fine dining destination, The Mustang restaurant. Mustang’s kitchen will be taken over by Toronto’s newest hot spot dining sensation, “Marbl Toronto” owned by restaurateur, Peter Girges, known for Vancouver’s West Oak, Pierre’s Champagne Bar, and Twelve West. Head chef, Ryan Morrison (The Glowbal Connection in Vancouver; Scarpetta in New York, Toronto and Beverly Hills) will serve up the restaurants modern american bistro dishes sourced from the most sustainable, local and most fresh products available.
As the program’s annual Title Sponsor, Kia Motors has successfully leveraged the program to promote their new vehicle releases over the past five years and most recently with their eight-passenger Telluride SUV ahead of the production release. For 2020, the Kia Telluride Supper Suite will bring a fleet of chauffeur driven all-wheel drive Tellurides to Park City to shuttle the A-list Hollywood community to and from busy film premiere and publicity schedules. “The 2020 Kia Telluride is our best vehicle yet to handle the high altitudes and snow-filled streets of Park City and it makes perfect sense to showcase Telluride’s big, bold and boxy looks and ultra-comfortable interior,” explains James Bell, Kia’s Director of Corporate Communications & Social. “For the Telluride to be the first sport-utility vehicle to win the ‘Triple Crown’ of the auto industry’s most prestigious accolades: 2020 North American Utility Vehicle of the Year from North American Car of the Year; MotorTrend SUV of the Year; and a Car and Driver 10 Best is a historic achievement and yet another validation of Kia’s commitment to building world-class vehicles,” said Michael Cole, president, Kia Motors America.
Additionally, long-term sponsor partner, Molson Coors Beverage Company returns for its fifth year partnership to serve Peroni Nastro Azzurro, Italy’s No. 1 premium beer. Brewed with the same flair and attention to detail through three generations of master brewers, Peroni is the perfect complement to the Kia Telluride Supper Suite as it uses only the finest ingredients, including its exclusive Nostrano dell’Isola maize. This delivers a crisp and refreshing beer with a delicate balance of bitterness, citrus and spicy aromatic notes, combined with a fast and clean finish.
William Grant & Sons will serve as the official spirits partner featuring custom craft-cocktails with Glenfiddich single malt Scotch Whisky as well as their premium spirit brands, The Balvenie Scotch, Hendrick’s Gin, Milagro Tequila, and Reyka Vodka.
Additional brand partners activating include mou, a sumptuous, cult London, hand-crafted footwear label, who will return to Park City to gift its highly coveted winter boots to Hollywood’s elite. Luxury eyewear maker ic! berlin will also be on-site presenting its latest collection of German-engineered prescriptions and sun frames to celebrity guests.
The Kia Telluride Supper Suite also will host The Creative Coalition‘s Annual Spotlight Initiative Awards Benefit Dinner. The year’s Creative Coalition honorees include Rachel Brosnahan, Julie Taymor, and Jim Gaffigan. Ashley Williams’ short Meats also will receive a Spotlight honor. Hosts and Presenters who also will be in attendance include actor and President of The Creative Coalition Tim Daly, Brad Paisley, Kimberly William-Paisley, Olivia Munn, Gloria Steinem, Ryan Eggold, Clark Gregg, Brandon Micheal Hall, Rob Morrow, Michelle Rodriguez and others TBA.
“I’m excited our Supper Suite brand enters into the roaring 2020’s fueled by successful long-term partnerships by brands like Kia Motors America and Miller-Coors, and The Creative Coalition who share and support our program’s mission of celebrating the creative community working hard to promote Art in the evolving independent film circuit” tells David Manning, CMO at A-List Communications.
