People wanting to buy ticket packages and passes for the 2016 Sundance Film Festival will get a second chance next week, 15 days after a website glitch forced Sundance officials to cut off sales the first time.

Tales will resume Thursday, starting at noon Mountain time, festival organizers announced Friday.

"After extensive investigation, development, and testing, we are pleased to relaunch sales in a robust and stable environment," a statement on the Sundance Institute's website said. "We are confident that our system will allow for a seamless experience."

Ticket sales on Oct. 14 were shut down after 96 minutes as many buyers received error messages when entering credit-card information.

Most offerings are still available. Passes and packages will be sold on a first-come basis.
