Consider Parker Posey the queen of the indies, or the Sundance poster girl. How many Sundance Film Festivals has she attended?

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

The actor is back this year as one of the stars of "Price Check," which premiered on Wednesday night. And she said being at Sundance 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 changed so dramatically. So it’s not what it used to be."

Mostly because Sundance isn’t 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."

Unlike many actors, Posey will be at Sundance through this weekend, as 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.
