Taylor Swift will host a conversation about her new song and short film at New York’s Tribeca Film Festival.
GRAMMY Awards singer-songwriter Taylor Swift is what you’d classify as a jack of all trades. And now, she is ready to display all those talents at New York’s famous Tribeca Film Festival this June.
We have seen how a country singer turned into a pop star and won many Grammy Awards – you may have also seen her acting in films such as Cats. Swift’s list of achievements is getting longer every time.
In 2020, she stepped into the world of directing – starting her first solo venture behind the camera and amazed all by dropping out her first music video The Man.
Over the past year, Swift re-recorded her masters and released Red (Taylor’s Version), stunned the world with her 10-minute version of the album’s beloved track All Too Well, and released a short film that accompanied it. She will provide a special screening of this project – which she wrote, directed, and starred in – at Tribeca Film Festival 2022.
Titled A Conversation with Taylor Swift, the event will take place at the Beacon Theater on June 11 at 3 p.m. Eastern. After a screening of the film, Swift will also discuss her approach as a filmmaker.
The film first premiered in November 2021, starring Sadie Sink and Dylan O’Brien, and is based on the 10-minute version of Swift’s song All Too Well which is widely believed to be about her relationship with actor Jake Gyllenhaal.
Talking about her film, Swift wrote on her Instagram, “I can’t begin to express my gratitude to Sadie and Dylan for giving us everything they had in order to tell this story… For you, from us. ♥️”
Other celebrities such as Pharrell Williams, Seth Meyers, Steve Aoki, and Cynthia Erivo, as well as directors Tyler Perry, Adam McKay, and Julian Schnabel will also take part in Tribeca’s talks series.
Elsewhere at Tribeca, Pharrell will discuss his career at the Borough of Manhattan Community College on June 10, while Common, an American rapper, will take part in a conversation with journalist Charles Blow. The rapper is also set to receive the festival’s second annual Harry Belafonte Voices for Social Justice Award and will be presented with the trophy by Robert De Niro.
Plus, Robert De Niro and Al Pacino will celebrate the 25th anniversary of their movie Heat on a special panel. The cast and crew of Velvet Goldmine and Eve’s Bayou will also celebrate the 25th anniversary of those films.
“We are excited to present a compelling slate of Talks, Reunions, and Master Classes from leading storytellers across film, television, music, art, and comedy,” Paula Weinstein, Tribeca’s Chief Content Officer, said in a statement.
“Audiences will have the opportunity to hear from a diverse and captivating lineup of award-winning entertainers at the forefront of cultural leadership.”
