St. Vincent looks all set to have a busy 2017, with her cultural output being well represented at the Sundance Film Festival - in a couple different capacities.
The singer-songwriter, credited as Annie Clark, is one of four writer-directors contributing to the previously reported horror anthology XX. Other directors contributing to the movie are Karyn Kusama, Roxanne Benjamin, and Jovanka Vuckovic. The film stars Natalie Brown, Melanie Lynskey, Breeda Wool, and Christina Kirk. The film is part of Sundance's Midnight programming and will be released in theaters later in 2017.
St. Vincent has also scored Kristen Stewart‘s new short film "Come Swim", which she made as part of Refinery29's female filmmaker-focused Shatterbox Anthology series. When speaking at the New York Film Festival, Stewart told reporters that her movie was "...kind of expressionistic, it's pretty painterly," adding "I'm not hiding behind anything by doing a slightly avant garde first thing." The short is described as "a diptych of one man's day, half impressionist and half realist portraits."
Back in 2015, Clark won the GRAMMY for Best Alternative Music Album, for her fifth studio LP, St. Vincent. She was the first woman in 20 years to win the award. Despite her forays into the movies and scoring world, there has been no announcement about her next album at this time, and she currently has no tour dates scheduled.
