PARK CITY - Parker Posey is the Queen of the Indies, the Sundance Poster Girl - whatever you want to call her.How many Sundance Film Festivals has she been to?

"Seventy-five, I think," she said, adding that she started coming "back in the prairie days."

The actress is back this year as one of the stars of "Price Check." And she said it does feel like a homecoming. But you know what they say about not being able to go home again.

"The business has changed so dramatically," Posey said. "The culture has change so dramatically. So it's not what it used to be."

Mostly because Sundance is not the small, intimate film festival it once was.

"It's gotten a lot bigger," Posey said. "There are pros and cons to that. I'm just grateful that it even exists."

"Price Check" premiered Wednesday, but Posey isn't going anywhere. She's here until the end - she's hosting the awards on Saturday night.

"What? What are you talking about?" she said in mock surprise. "I'm hosting awards? What do you mean? Do I have to cook?"

Well, um, no. I don't think so.

"OK, I'll do it," Posey said.

She admitted it will be a little out of her comfort zone, but she didn't seen overly concerned.

"I'm an actor. I've been onstage," Posey said. "I'm hoping that will click in and I'll be able to be myself. And relate to everybody there at this very special time in their lives."
