    Dramas featuring "Twilight" star Kristen Stewart, Natalie Portman and "The Sopranos" co-stars James Gandolfini and Edie Falco are in the hunt for awards at the Sundance Film Festival.

    Robert Redford's independent-film showcase next month includes the New Orleans drama "Welcome to the Rileys," which co-stars Gandolfini and Stewart, along with Melissa Leo.

    Falco is among the cast of the suburban drama "3 Backyards," while Portman stars alongside Joseph Gordon-Levitt and Rainn Wilson in the family tale "Hesher."

    The films are among 16 screening in Sundance's U.S. dramatic competition and were selected from more than 1,000 movies submitted to the festival.

    113 films have been selected to compete at the Festival, organizers announced today. Selections from over 38 countries will vie for top prize in the U.S. and World Dramatic and Documentary competition categories

    Sundance runs Jan. 21-31 in Park City, Utah.
