Random moments from the last few days at AFI Fest:

(Arriving at the Arclight for the screening of Transamerica, co-star Kevin Zegers and his girlfriend, actress Marisa Coughlan, are swarmed by the photogs. It became even crazier when the film’s star, Felicity Huffman, arrived with three of her Desperate Housewives co-stars.)

(It’s indieWIRE, past and present. At a farewell party toasting iW contributor Jonny Leahan’s upcoming move back to New York City from L.A., folks came out in full force at The Well. Here’s – l to r – indieWIRE’s current and former staffers Brian Brooks, Wendy Mitchell, Jonny, Eugene Hernadez, and Mark Rabinowitz. Wendy was actually in town from the U.K., to cover AFM. It was an unexpected indieWIRE reunion.)
