It's rare for a celebrity to show up on the final day of the Sundance Film Festival.

But cut Jeremy Lin some slack. He's been busy this week.

Jeremy Lin, the Houston Rockets point guard, will be in attendance Sunday for the festival's final screening, of the documentary "Linsanity."

The screening begins at 6:30 p.m. at the Rose Wagner Performing Arts Center, 138 W. 300 South, Salt Lake City.

Lin's Rockets are playing host to the Brooklyn Nets tonight -- the sixth game the Rockets have played since Sundance began on the 17th. But the Rockets are in Salt Lake City on Monday night to play the Jazz, so Lin's arriving a day early to make an appearance at Evan Jackson Leong's documentary about him.
