The Tribeca Film Festival has revealed the speaker lineup for its annual Tribeca Talks, including Jason Grant Smith (pictured, right), who will appear in conversation following the world premiere of the doc I Voted?.

The documentary, which will have its world premiere at the festival on April 21, examines the accuracy of the digitized election process following the 2010 win by South Carolina candidate Alvin Greene for the U.S. Senate Primary, despite having not campaigned. Following the screening, Smith will appear in conversation with executive producer Katie Couric (left).

Other speakers confirmed for the Talks include chef Jeremiah Tower and executive producers Anthony Bourdain and Lydia Tenaglia, who will discuss their world-premiering doc Jeremiah Tower: The Last Magnificent;  and the unnamed creators and subjects of Vaxxed: From Cover-Up to Catastrophe.

Elsewhere, the Tribeca/ESPN Sports Film Festival Conversations event will see Undefeated.com editor-in-chief Kevin Merida discuss OJ: Made in America with director Ezra Edelman; while ‘Elections’ directors Nate Silver and Micah Cohen will deliberate over Eric Drath’s short film A More Perfect Union.

The Tribeca Talks series gives audiences the opportunity to hear from some of the leading storytellers in the industry about their craft, recent and upcoming projects, and innovations across mediums.
