The 2020 Sundance Film Festival is about to go superstar supernova on its opening day.
No news if the chart topper will be performing on Thursday in the snowy and celebrity filled Utah town, but she will definitely be attending the 9 PM screening of the Lana Wilson directed film at the Eccles Theatre, I hear. It also looks pretty likely that Swift will join Wilson and others from the film onstage for the traditional short Q&A.
Swift has actually been at the Robert Redford founded fest before with a visit back in 2012 for Rory Kennedy’s film Ethel. Swift penned a tune for the HBO documentary about Robert Kennedy’s wife and widow.
Of course, coming days before what is sure to be a controversial Grammys, this latest trip to Sundance is much more about the duel nominated Swift herself, literally.
