Q-Tip, Director Todd Haynes To Participate in Tribeca Panel

Song Debut: Q-Tip's "Barely In Love"

Q-Tip performs at the All Points West Festival in Jersey City, New Jersey on July 31, 2009.

The Tribeca Film Festival will hold a panel pairing hip hop artist Q-Tip with "I'm Not There" director Todd Haynes for a discussion of how filmmakers and musicians take cues from each other, The Hollywood Reporter has learned.

The panel, called "Tribeca Talks Industry: Music + Film," will be an hour-long session moderated by Billboard editor Joe Levy at SVA Theatre 1 from 3:30 to 4:30 p.m. on April 23. 

In addition to I'm Not There, in which six different actors portrayed Bob Dylan, Haynes previously directed Far From Heaven and Safe, which both starred Julianne Moore.

Q-Tip -- a founding member of group A Tribe Called Quest -- told Billboard in March that he is planning to reunite the group for his 2014 album The Last Zulu.

Previously announced Tribeca Talks Industry events include a panel on new filmmakers featuring Alex Karpovsky (Girls) and Lance Edmands (Bluebird) on April 25 and a discussion of "race, authorship and authenticity" that includes panelists Terence Nance (An Oversimplification of Her Beauty) and Braven Films CEO Frida Torresblanco on April 19.
