The stars and filmmakers were on hand in Park City, Utah, tonight as Filly Brown made its formal bow as part of the 2012 Sundance Film Festival.

Up-and-comer Gina Rodriguez stars as the titular character in the Latino hip-hop drama that tells the story of a young street poet who is trying to find her true voice even as she stands on the cusp of stardom. Directed by Youssef Delara (who also wrote the screenplay) and Michael D. Olmos, the film also stars Edward James Olmos, Lou Diamond Phillips, and Jenni Rivera.

Filly Brown is among 15 other films competing in the festival’s U.S. Dramatic Competition. Tonight's showing was the film's official premiere, the first of five planned for the festival.
