Park City • Park City leaders and the organizers of the Sundance Film Festival on Thursday night finalized an agreement to keep the top domestic marketplace of independent films in the city through at least 2026, crafting a deal that won support from the tourism industry in addition to City Hall and the festival.

The agreement starts with the 2014 festival, scheduled in January, and includes an out option for the final three years. To applause, the Park City Council approved the agreement on a 4-0 vote with Liza Simpson absent. The sides worked for months on the deal, almost exclusively in private meetings.
