iPOP at the 2004 Tribeca Film Festival, Vol. 2

by Brian Brooks/indieWIRE

Right about now, either festival adrenaline kicks in, or one completely crashes. People frequently ask us at indieWIRE how we maintain stamina to go to so many parties. Well, we're all single (and maybe a little nuts) that's how... Nevertheless, exhaustion does creep in since we are after all only human. But that doesn't matter, we'll still be there for the opening of a drawer... OK, maybe not just any old drawer... Anyway, this tirade is to introduce the second round of event coverage for the Tribeca Film Festival parties we've been attending including the Kodak filmmaker and industry party Tuesday night at Roy's New York (also co-sponsored with indieWIRE), the "Tony n' Tina's Wedding" party in the Lower East Side complete with a real couple who tied the knot that night, as well as late-night hanging out at the Tribeca Cinemas (in the bar), and of course, SCREENINGS... It is a film festival. This iPOP edition does not include Wednesday night's parties (of course we'll be there) which has been called the biggest night (at least party-wise) of the fest. And just think, Cannes is one week away.




If you think 'N Sync and the Backstreet Boys were rad, well take a look at this guy. Joey (now Joseph) McIntyre was one of the members of the New Kids on the Block, which along with Take That and a few others on the cutting edge of boybandom paved the way for others including Justin, AJ, JC, Joey and Nick. McIntyre had many of the girls and some of the boys whispering and pointing at the party for his latest project, "Tony n' Tina's Wedding" in downtown Manhattan Monday night. Damn he's cute!!

"Tony n' Tina's Wedding" actress Kim Director looked dazzling in blue, and was especially charming when she said she loved to read indieWIRE.

Vita Mazza and Romeo Luna of Stockton, Calif., were the lucky winners of the "Tony n' Tina's Free Wedding Contest." The couple tied the knot during the Monday night event, and had a real wedding reception-style party after the screening complete with cover band, a yummy wedding cake and about 300 of their closest friends they met that day.

"Poster Boy" director Zack Tucker (wearing the white shirt) had a packed audience for his screening Tuesday night that included a Q&A with members of the cast afterward. They posed with him in the lobby of the auditorium much to the delight of audience members with their cameras who found them not at all hard on the eyes. To the left of Tucker is Jack Noseworthy, and on the right are Matt Newton and Valerie Geffner.

Publicist Jeremy Walker and two-time Oscar-winning filmmaker Barbara Kopple brave the wrath of the venue managers who were trying to clear the building for the next screening in order to pose for this pic following "Poster Boy."

Melissa Sagemiller looked smokin' after the "Poster Boy" screening. She is currently starring in a film that's being shot in NYC. Take that Canada! (no offense of course)

The late-night hanging out at the Tribeca Cinemas bar area hasn't quite yet ascended (or descended depending on your point of view) to the levels experienced last year at Bistro 990 during the Toronto International Film Festival, but hey... There are several nights to go. Still, it is a goodtime. "Lipstick & Dynamite, Piss & Vinegar: The First Ladies of Wrestling" director Ruth Leitman sips a little white with the producer of her film, Anne Hubbell.

Newport Film Festival's Nancy Donahoe with animators Bill Plympton and Signe Bauman at the Filmmaker and Industry party no doubt hoping the coconut crusted shrimp tray will come by once more (or not).
