Sundance: Chelsea Handler to Lead Women's March in Park City
The march will take place on Main Street on Saturday, Jan. 21.
The Sundance Film Festival's main thoroughfare, Main Street in Park City, Utah, will serve as the center of a women's march to be held Jan. 21 during this year's fest.
Chelsea Handler will lead the Park City march, which will be one of more than 200 sister marches being planned in all 50 states and in 20 countries around the world, timed to the inauguration of Donald Trump.
Handler, who appeared at Sundance last year with her Netflix series, also will serve as a host of the post-march rally. The main march, set to take place in Washington, is expected to have more than 200,000 participants.
"Sundance has always been a platform for change, not only for filmmakers and filmmaking but also for big ideas for the future," Handler said Thursday in a statement. 'If there's anything I learned in the last year, it's that we need to be louder and stronger than ever about what we believe in, so I joined some incredible women from around the country to bring our voices together in the streets of Park City. The Women's March on Main will be an opportunity for the creative community and those in Utah to stand beside those in D.C."
The Sundance Film Festival, which is not sponsoring the march, is set to run Jan. 19-29.
