Taylor Swift Receives Standing Ovation at Sundance Film Festival Premiere of 'Miss Americana'

The singer's documentary, 'Taylor Swift: Miss Americana,' premiered at the film festival in Utah on Thursday.

Taylor Swift arrived at this year's Sundance Film Festival in style and was met with a really warm welcome.

The 30-year-old "Look What You Made Me Do" singer stepped out on Thursday to attend the Sundance Film Festival premiere of her upcoming documentary, Miss Americana, in Park City, Utah. Swift stayed warm in a head-to-toe glen plaid ensemble.

The "Lover" songstress was photographed wearing a black-white-and-grey checkered jumpsuit with a small belt around her waist. She completed the look with a matching long coat and pointed-toe booties, as well as earrings and rings by Mateo.

Her blonde locks were in a shaggy lob, and her makeup consisted of neutral eyeshadow, a cat-eye and a bold red lip.

As Swift made her way to the premiere, her fans were already lining up at the venue to catch a glimpse of her. 

At the screening, held at the large Eccles Theater and performing arts center, Swift was met with a standing ovation from the packed house.

Speaking on stage alongside the film's director, Lana Wilson, Swift explained that the entire project started off as a vague idea and that Wilson's deft hand crafted it into something special.

"We started the process not really knowing if we were going to end up with a documentary," Swift shared with the crowd. "This was completely in her hands, and I really appreciate all the hours we talked... there were a lot of hours that she had to hear me talk about my feelings."

Turning to Wilson, Swift shared, "Thank you so much for everything you are, and all the work you put in and all the thought and care and empathy you put into what you do."

Helmed by the Emmy-winning director, Miss Americana explores Swift's personal life and relationship with boyfriend Joe Alwyn, as well as her public feud with Kanye West and Kim Kardashian West, why she decided to speak out about politics, the making of her most recent album, Lover, and more.

While Swift's feud with the rapper is featured in the flick, her spat with Scooter Braun and Scott Borchetta, who control Swift's older albums at her former label, Big Machine Records, is not included. Wilson told Variety in an article published this week that, "The Big Machine stuff happened pretty late in our process. We weren’t that far from picture lock. But there’s also not much to say that isn’t publicly known." 

Meanwhile, in that same interview, Swift revealed that her mother, Andrea Swift, has a brain rumor. The multi-GRAMMY winner first revealed her mom's breast cancer diagnosis in 2015 and shared in March 2019 that Andrea's cancer had returned. Andrea's new tumor, she said, was discovered while she was undergoing chemotherapy treatment.

Miss Americana will hit Netflix on Jan. 31.
