Some two months after the release of the fifth and final Twilight film, Stephenie Meyer is quite enjoying herself.

On Friday, the author of the popular book series of the same name found herself at her first ever Sundance Film Festival in Park City, Utah.

“It’s so much more relaxed,” Meyer told Celebuzz on the red carpet for her new project, Austenland.

“This is kind of cool, a lot of cool people. Everybody’s just really mellow. No screaming. I like it. I can just sit here and talk to you without shouting.”

The 39-year-old author, who serves as a producer for the film adaptation of the 2007 novel, was joined at the Austenland premiere event by author Shannon Hale and the film’s stars Keri Russell, Jane Seymour and Bret McKenzie.

Meyer, who gives the Twilight film franchise plenty of credit for opening doors to the world of indie filmmaking, said she’s going to keep things on the small side for the time being.

“With my little production company, what we want to do is make books into movies — books we love — involve the authors, get them in the center of it,” she said.

Until her next small project, Meyer has one more feature to release, though it probably won’t cause any Edward or Jacob-inspired screams.

The film adaptation of her other bestselling novel, The Host, opens in March.
