The Sundance Film Festival kicks off tomorrow (January 16) and rages on in Park City, Utah, for 10 days after that. The fest is a hub for celebrity talent, looking to make smaller, more experimental movies, and every year, the crowd is a who’s who of A-list stars.
Sundance is also the place where many careers started, so there’s a ton of amazing pictures from the early days of stars like Kristen Stewart, Jennifer Lawrence and Ryan Gosling. So before MTV News heads out to Park City to bring you all of the updates from the ground, let’s take a look back at some adorable Sundance memories.
