Making her debut visit to the annual rocky mountains cinema showcase, Taylor Swift attended the Artist at the Table Dinner and Discussion during Day One of the 2012 Sundance Film Festival in Park City, Utah on Thursday night (January 19).

With the gathering taking place at The Shop, the "Mine" singer joined alongside filmmaker Rory Kennedy - as she's in town to attend Friday's screening of Rory's Ethel Kennedy focused HBO documentary titled "Ethel".

During her evening at the Artist at the Table Dinner and Discussion, Miss Swift also mingled with Sundance Institute President and Founder Robert Redford, Executive Director Keri Putnam and Vice-chair Pat Mitchell, as well as fellow musicians such as Mary J Blige, Kendrick Scott, Shoree Boyd, and Derrick Hodge.

As for her attachment to the Kennedy's, Taylor spoke with Vogue magazine's February 2012 issue about how meeting Ethel and Caroline Kennedy was the only time that she’s ever been starstruck in her life.

“I got to spend the afternoon with Ethel a couple of weeks ago,” the 22-year-old dished. “She is one of my favorites because you look back at the pictures of her and Bobby and they always look like they are having the most fun out of everybody. You know, eleven kids, all these exotic animals on their property. I’ve read a lot about them.”
