May 2 (UPI) -- Taylor Swift will appear at the Tribeca Festival for a special screening of her short film, All Too Well, which she will discuss with the audience afterwards, organizers announced on Monday.

Swift will discuss her approach as a filmmaker in a conversation with the audience after the film's screening at 3 p.m. on June 11, at the Beacon Theatre, according to the announcement, as part of the Tribeca Festival, from June 8 to June 19 in New York venues.


The 11-time Grammy winner's short film, shot on 35mm film, which she wrote and directed, was based on a longer, 10-minute version of her song, "All Too Well." The song is from Red (Taylor's Version) track, which came out in November.
