According to Southwest, users who use Gowalla to check in at a Southwest Airlines airport with nonstop service to Salt Lake City, will be offered a chance to win a roundtrip ticket to a Sundance Film Festival screening. Users will also be given a "Southwest Airlines Sundance Film Festival" pin for checking in at those airports. Southwest said it will give away 20 prizes in the competition.
