Follow Kristen Stewart’s Day At Sundance As She Premieres ‘Camp X-Ray’

MTV News was with the young star before her big event in Park City.

Park City, Utah — After taking a few years off from the fest, Kristen Stewart has returned to Sundance with a new film, “Camp X-Ray.” As is the case with the indie festival, Stewart’s day wasn’t limited to an appearance at the screening, but included a whole round of interviews, plus a couple with MTV News.

We followed Kristen for a good chunk of her morning in Park City, and to give you somewhat of an idea of how Sundance works for the stars, we’ve put together a small recap of her day at the festival.

Before hitting the red carpet for the “Camp X-Ray” premiere at the Eccles Center, a high school that doubles as a festival venue, Stewart sat down to talk with MTV News alongside her cast mate Peyman Moaadi and director Peter Sattle.

Stewart recalled her first reaction to reconsidering the role as a Guantanamo Bay guard.

“I was so nervous when I first started working and preparing because I didn’t think that people would believe me or think that I looked tough in a uniform,” she said, “that I could do that job, that I could wrangle detainees that are massive and scary.”

And of course, she couldn’t stop by without a game of “Happy, Sad, Confused.”

Then it was off to the red carpet, where she spoke with more outlets, including MTV News again, and posed for some pictures.

After a few pictures with the cast, Stewart headed into the world premiere screening of “Camp X-Ray.” Since the movie was produced independently, “Camp X-Ray” has yet to set a release date, but that could change in the coming days of Sundance.

MTV News will be bringing you updates all weekend from Park City, Utah and the Sundance Film Festival.
