Take part in a special evening celebrating award-winning actor and artist Tilda Swinton as she takes the stage for a candid conversation. Reuniting with Joanna Hogg, Swinton stars in the NYFF60 Main Slate selection The Eternal Daughter and, in a performance of rich, endless surprise, turns in one of the most remarkable acting feats in her astonishing career.

In the conversation, Swinton will reflect on her illustrious acting career, which began with Caravaggio (1985), the first of seven films she made with the director Derek Jarman. She earned wider international acclaim in Orlando (1992), Sally Potter’s film based on the novel by Virginia Woolf. In addition to Hogg, the extensive list of distinguished directors with whom Swinton has worked with includes Pedro Almodóvar, Joel and Ethan Coen, Luca Guadagnino, Bong Joon Ho, Jim Jarmusch, Lynne Ramsay, Béla Tarr, Wes Anderson, and Apichatpong Weerasethakul. She received the BAFTA and Academy Award for Best Supporting Actress in 2008 for Tony Gilroy’s Michael Clayton and in 2020 was the recipient of a BFI Fellowship and a Leon d’Oro at the Venice Film Festival for her lifetime’s work. New York Times film critic Manohla Dargis said of Swinton, “The woman of a thousand otherworldly faces, Tilda Swinton has created enough personas — with untold wigs, costumes and accents — to have become a roster of one. She’s a star, a character actor, a performance artist, an extraterrestrial, a trickster.“

Tickets for the talk only are $30 (General Public) / $25 (Members). A $1,000 package is also available featuring a ticket to the talk, access to a private reception with Tilda Swinton, and a ticket to the sold-out screening of The Eternal Daughter on October 10 at 9pm at Alice Tully Hall.
