41 stars pictured on the red carpet at the 2020 Sundance Film Festival

America's most influential film festival is under way in Salt Lake City, Utah

The Sundance Film Festival is underway in Salt Lake City, Utah, and stars of the screen are out in force to support their latest movies.

Sundance is largely thought of as America's most influential film festival, with 118 movies receiving their world premiere at this year's event.

The festival began last week with a screening of one of the most-anticipated titles in this year's line-up, Netflix's Taylor Swift: Miss Americana. Swift was in attendance, wearing a Carmen March tweed jumpsuit. Directed by Lana Wilson, the docu-film is an intimate portrait of the global singing sensation, following her through several years of her life.

Tesla, the latest picture from director Michael ­Almereyda, also had its premiere this week. Starring Ethan Hawke, the film follows the pioneering inventor and electric engineer Nikola Tesla – a project that brings Almereyda full circle, given that he won his Hollywood agent years ago with a spec script about this subject.

Anne Hathaway, Jude Law and Eva Longoria are among the stars pictured so far at this year's festival.
