“If you can’t get T.S. Eliot, get T.S.” Taylor Swift told Andrew Lloyd Webber in an interview, although for her fans, spotting her or taking a picture of her could be everything.
If you are among those who go to movie premieres to spot a celebrity, then the Sundance film festival 2021 might be your perfect bet. The thrill of spotting your favourite is unmatched. From documentaries filmed around celebrities to stars featuring in the movies, there is a high chance that you may see and even take a photograph of a star.
We have done some research on who to expect at the Sundance film festival red carpet. It will work as a field guide for your celebrity spotting and don’t forget to sneak into private Sundance parties to get a closer selfie with your favorite celebrities.
The Sundance film festival lineup is full of interesting works. The festival will kick-off with ‘Taylor Swift: Miss Americana’ which was selected for the Documentary Premieres program. Directed by Lana Wilson, this documentary follows Taylor Swift’s career spanning over a course of years. So we can definitely expect Taylor herself to appear at the red carpet.
Next in line for the star-studded lineups is Angelina Jolie’s new film ‘Come Away’. The film is one of the big premieres at the Sundance Film Festival 2021. Starring alongside David Oyelowo and Michael Caine, we are hopeful to see these two as well at the red carpet.
Hollywood stars from Ben Affleck to Julianne Moore will also be seen in the Park City, Utah, to be a part of the 2021 Sundance film festival. Ben Affleck is starring opposite Anne Hathaway in the Netflix drama ‘The Last Thing He Wanted’. This film is an adaptation of Joan Didion’s novel set in the 80s.
Another anticipated film of the festival is ‘Downhill’, which is a remake of ‘Force Majeure’. Starring Julia Louis-Dreyfus and Will Ferrell, we are expecting these two to appear the at red carpet as well.
The Oscar winners Julianne Moore and Alicia Vikander will also be seen at the Sundance 2021. They are playing the role of the feminist activist Gloria Steinem at different ages in ‘The Glorias’.
Glenn Close, Mila Kunis, Olivia Colman, and Anthony Hopkins also form the list of Sundance Film Festival celebrity sightings.
Some other stars that the fans can expect to see at the festival are Robert Redford, Riley Keough, and Lena Waithe.
This festival has set the stage in former years for some amazing breakout hits. These include The Farewell, Eighth Grade, Sorry to Bother You and Call Me By Your Name. With a star-studded red carpet, we can expect some more hits this year too.
