Sundance chairman, Robert Redford, kicks things off with a day one press conference on Thursday (Jan 20).

"Access Hollywood" and "Today" correspondent Maria Menounos bundles up for the soft opening of the Bing Bar. We can expect to be seeing plenty more celebs in outerwear, as temperatures will be averaging in the 20's this weekend.
