iPOP at the Tribeca Film Festival Vol. 3

by Brian Brooks

Thursday night was party night for the Tribeca Film Festival, with more than a dozen parties happening throughout Lower Manhattan, including an early evening soiree at APT in the Meat Packing District for "The Eye." A huge, almost dotcom-style no expenses spared party went down for cable channel AMC at Capitale in Chinatown with lavish buffets, open bars and a room full of party monsters. But the real place to be was at the Mercer where pop stardom met film for the "Capturing the Friedmans" party. Attendees included Euro pop phenomenon Robbie Williams, Moby and Cindy Lauper.

Manhattan's latest "in spot" Capitale, once a bank, was the sight of a lavish spread of buffets, open-bars and total 90s-style decadence hosted by cable channel, AMC.

The night's coolest party was at the downstairs bar at the Mercer Hotel for "Capturing the Friedmans." Revelers partied to the max until the wee hours. Pictured is the film's director Andrew Jarecki as he is interviewed by Variety's Lily Oei.

Pop stars came out for the "Friedmans," fiesta including the U.K.'s Robbie Williams, in town for Tribeca's MTV VH1 concert held on Friday night. The room was swooning over his every move.

A little surprised by the request for a pic, Cindy Lauper waves hello to iW at the beginning of the "Friedmans" par-tay where photographers with more impressive cameras later snapped her incessantly.
