I’ll admit, this was not my most party-intensive Tribeca Film Festival. First of all, it’s been two years now since Showtime’s legendary all you can eat sushi party at Nobu and the fest just isn’t the same without it! Secondly, I don’t recover as well from parties as I used to. That said, I did attend a few (what would a film festival be without the Rabbi hitting the parties, I ask you?) and one of the better fêtes was held on May 1st for IFC Films upcoming release of Patrice Leconte’s My Best Friend which stars one of my favorite Gallic actors Daniel Auteuil (Le Huitième Jour). The event was sponsored by ROC which, interestingly enough was celebrating their 50th anniversary on that very day! Well, Bonne Anniversaire, ROC!
The party was attended by a few celebs, including Kevin Pollack, Rachel Dratch, Sherri Saun (Rescue Me), Colin Egglesfield (All My Children), Jane Krakowski, socialite Alex Adame and of course the indie world’s roster of up-and-coming bold-faced names, including directors Joe Swanberg (Hannah Takes the Stairs) & Aaron Katz (Quiet City) and Hannah herself, Greta Gerwig.
The goody bags were quite good, and considering that hosts seem to be cutting back on that particular perk (for shame!) quite welcome. After the bash ended (some of us stayed right up until “get out” time) there were goody bags left over, so if you need any puffy eye cream, let me know, as I’m up to my tits in retinol!
