Opening night at the New York Film Festival has been called, among other things, prom night in the indie film world and that’s not an entirely innacurate nick name. We dress up in our finest (well, most of us do) and after a screening of an anticipated, soon-to-open film at Lincoln Center, we hoof it a few blocks to Tavern on the Green to drink, eat, dance and schmooze the night away. After the official after-screening party, many of us head off to the after after party which, for the past few years, has been held at downtown restaurant Village. Without further ado, some pics from my favorite night of the year. One question, though….what the hell happened to the sundae bar this year?
IFC Films‘ Ryan Werner and indieWIRE Ed in Chief Eugene Hernandez at Village.
L to R: Cinetic Media‘s Dano O’Keefe, the many-titled professor John Pierson and producer’s rep/producer Josh Braun at Village.
indieWIRE’s Brian Brooks and publicist Susan Norget strike a gorgeous pose at Village.
IFC Films consultant Marisa Keselica (and co-host of the after, after party), looking fabulous!
More Pix coming soon.
