The 22-year-old actress, who has two movies at the festival this year, co-hosted the lunch alongside Glamour‘s Cindi Leive, Girlgaze‘s Amanda de Cadenet, and actresses Salma Hayek, Jessica Williams, and Alfre Woodard. The event took place on Tuesday (January 24) in Park City, Utah.

Some of the other women in attendance at the event included Elle Fanning, Shirley MacLaine, Michaela Watkins, Michelle Morgan, Sanaa Lathan, and Zoey‘s Before I Fall director Ry Russo-Young.

Zoey spoke to WWD at the festival to explain how doing press there is so much different than for other movies.

“Generally when you are doing movie press, you are holed up in a room and you don’t see sunlight for 13 hours and this is so beautiful,” she said while looking out a window at the snowy scenery.

FYI: Zoey is wearing an A.L.C. sweater and pants.
