SALT LAKE CITY (AP) — Organizers of the Sundance Film Festival are rolling out guidelines aimed at preventing and reporting sexual misconduct.

Organizers say they revised the festival's code of conduct and partnered with Park City police and the Utah Attorney General's Office for guidance.

The state office is providing a 24-hour live hotline for people to report violations.

Sundance Institute managing director Betsy Wallace told The Salt Lake Tribune that organizers are working "to make sure that our festival, as every year, is safe and welcoming."

Wallace says criminal behavior will be reported to authorities and lesser offenses will be referred to festival officials.

Organizers say the code of conduct will be more visible at festival venues. The code was distributed internally in previous years.

The festival begins Thursday and runs through next week.
