We’re spotlighting Tribeca selections helmed by women directors every day of Women’s History Month.
Throughout the month of March, you’ll be seeing films by everyone from Nicole Holofcener and Mira Nair to Sarah Polley and Kelly Reichardt, along with rising artists like Talya Lavie and Meera Menon, two of the four winners of our ongoing Nora Ephron Prize, a festival competition for woman moviemakers devoted to the late, pioneering legend.
Follow along and seek these talents and their cinematic treasures out!
Evans not only knows how to tap dance (just ask any of his co-stars, who frequently comment on his awesome dancing skills), but he’d love to star in a musical. “I’m looking to find one,” he said, adding, “I love Gene Kelly, he was great. Wouldn’t it be great to do a [Gene Kelly] biopic or something like that?” Or Guys & Dolls! “That would be great, too,” Evans said. “I did that in high school.”
How do I tell her that she inhabits my mind 24/7, whether I’m trying to sleep, drinking coffee, or driving my car- she is constantly on my mind. I want to be able to hold her hand, or kiss her forehead, I want to be able to lay in a soft field of grass and just talk about anything and everything. When she doesn’t text me- it makes me miss her more and more, and I feel silly for feeling that way. I know she has better things to do then wait by her phone. But I just want her. I want to know what she’s thinking, what’s she’s doing- how she feels. I only want her to feel happy and hate knowing that I cannot do anything to stop the pain she’s going through. I want the good & the bad that comes with her- she’s everything I’ve ever wanted and more. It scares the hell out of me because it seems she doesn’t want the same and I know I’ll probably get hurt but I just want to try. I need to try. I don’t want anybody but her, nobody can compare. If only I could tell her, how do I tell her?
SUMMARY: Sometimes, you just need to get lost in a corn maze to find the totally-not-a-murderer love of your life.
A/N: this is bad and rushed but hey at least i wrote it, that counts for something right? honestly this started out as a legitimate imagine and then just went to shit so have fun reading i guess (none of it fits together or makes any sense but it’s fine)
Going to a corn maze with her friends had originally seemed like a good idea to Y/N. It was finally October, after all, and they wanted to do something to celebrate the autumn season - what could be better than a corn maze? And then someone had made it into a competition: everyone splits up and whoever makes it out first wins. Even then, everything had still seemed okay, because Y/N would be damned if she wasn’t going to win. Plus, how bad could it be, really? Pretty bad, it turned out. It had been half an hour and she was completely lost. Even worse, her phone had no service.
Broadway Café (Rainy Day Reprise): it’s been a while since I made the original playlist with this concept, but I often find myself writing down new songs to include. Because, really: Doesn’t it seem ideal? A rainy afternoon in a charming café, surroanded by books and the smell of coffee and baked goods, a playlist like this in the background, with the soft showtunes and ballads, powerful overtures, a little bit of jazz, and some songs that seem specificaly chosen to make you raise your head from the book you’re reading, look out the window and daydream. It’s like pieces falling into place, who knows, maybe I’ll end up owning a place like this someday, wouldn’t it be loverly? (Bad pun, good playlist.) Enjoy! (x)
The interview was over an hour long so here’s some that Demi revealed.
Demi wants Tell Me You Love Me to be a living album and will release more music in a few months before tour. This may be in the form of an EP or as added tracks to the album.
Two yet to be released songs are Who Do You Love? and Keep theSecret. They didn’t make the cut for TMYLM but Demi may release them later.
Demi said she laughs at the theories behind Ruin the Friendship, and mentioned Joe as one she’s heard. When the interviewer and fans brought up Nick Jonas she said “oh” and laughed it off. She says she’ll never say who it’s about unless she were to end up with the person. She said the same for Stone Cold.
Daddy Issues is about how her abandonment issues from her birth father ended up affecting her relationships. She feels she sometimes falls for people who would easily leave her. She hopes some people can relate to the song.
Smoke & Mirrors almost didn’t make the album because it was supposed to be a duet, and the person they were working with couldn’t do it because they had asked too late for them to meet the album deadline. Demi said she doesn’t like it as much with just her voice.
Demi cried in the studio when recording Smoke & Mirrors. She said she was also emotional when recording Tell Me You Love Me and Lonely, but not to the same extent.
The Sorry Not Sorry music video was based on a house party she had in March. She had her team invite a bunch of people because she wanted to “meet some cuties”
Demi plans on doing a world tour next year, which will definitely include European stops. She does not have dates finalized yet.
She enjoys acoustic performances and small, intimate venues. She wants this tour to have big production and dancers, but also more stripped down and acoustic portions.
Simply Complicated gets to address some things she hasn’t gotten to talk about before. It’ll show some of her issues she still deals with, and her album process. They shot some acoustic performance footage.
Demi had to call her therapist after seeing the Noah Michelson article in Huffington Post (she didn’t mention the article by name but described the situation). She said she hasn’t been used to people attacking her on social lately, so it really struck her. She says she is most defensive when people attack what she believes in or her character.
Demi said she almost passed out while filming the Stone Cold video because the bathwater was so hot.
Cool for the Summer was a really long video shoot in downtown LA.
She was disappointed the last few years with charts and being #2, but since her Grammy nomination, she’s trying not to pay as much attention. She is thankful that Tell Me You Love Me is #1 on iTunes, but she doesn’t expect it to be a #1 Billboard album.
Demi loves Cardi B. They’re Instagram buddies, but they have not met. She’d love to collab.
Demi has tried to collab with Ariana Grande for a while now, but the two haven’t been able to find a song right for two girls.
Demi heavily alluded to an upcoming Spanish collab with Luis Fonsi.
Demi doesn’t have any acting projects right now. “I’m better at singing than acting because you know, I did Camp Rock. It’s not the most credible thing for my resume.”
Demi and French Montana call each other “baby mama” and “baby daddy” for no reason
Kelly Clarkson, French Montana and Designer, and Luis Fonsi all gave Demi and TMYLM video shout outs
Demi has three days off after today during which she says she’ll veg out and watch crime shows. She is currently enjoys Ozark and Black Mirror.
Then she’s back in New York for a week to promote her documentary.
