You’ll always see big stars at the Sundance Film Festival, just by watching them on the screen — but it’s also a lot of fun to see them in the flesh, talking in Q&A’s after the screenings about making those movies.

The best time to see celebrities is during the festival’s first weekend in Park City, which is also when demand for tickets and crowds on Main Street are at their highest. By Tuesday, many of the celebrities start heading back to Los Angeles and New York, to get to their day jobs on TV shows and other projects. When the “Entertainment Tonight” crews pack up, so do the stars.

But while they are in town, here is a list of celebrities confirmed so far to appear with their films at the 2018 Sundance Film Festival. The list includes the projects for which they might be recognized, the movie (or movies) they’re showing at Sundance and (where applicable) their Twitter handle — so you can follow them vicariously.
