    Hangin' at the "Prada" Party

    Filmmakers and industry mixed at the after party for LAFF's opening night film, "The Devil Wears Prada" (David Frankel) outdoors in Westwood Thursday night. Among the attendees were William Morris' Craig Kestel (who was also in the area the night before for the "Superman" premiere) and "Half Nelson" director Ryan Fleck and co-writer/editor/producer Anna Boden. Both Fleck and Boden touted LAFF's Filmmaker Retreat, which they attended prior to the fest's opening, which took place at George Lucas' Skywalker Ranch in Marin, CA. ThinkFilm opens "Half Nelson," which premiered in January at Sundance in August.

    Ozon, Posey, Araki and Hu Do Westwood

    We ran into a rather cool crowd while exiting the Mann Village theater in Westwood Thursday night following the Los Angeles Film Festival's opening night screening of "The Devil Wears Prada." Strand Releasing co-president Marcus Hu (right) took us over to meet French filmmaker Francois Ozon (left) who was hanging out with actress Paker Posey and fellow director Gregg Araki. Ozon is attending LAFF with his latest, "Time to Leave," which Strand is releasing in the U.S. July 14th.

    Adrian Grenier at LAFF Premiere

    "I feel like I'm in an episode of 'Entourage,'" said one indie producer after seeing Adrian Grenier at the after party for "The Devil Wears Prada," which opened the Los Angeles Film Festival Thursday. Grenier, who stars in the film, was very Vincent-esque as he posed for photos and chatted with fans and press. Actually, he was very friendly, though we remember him most fondly from a few years ago at the Woodstock Film Festival where he and a friend took full advantage of a pool at a party. Not a bad sight to behold...

    Harrison Ford and the Filmmakers

    Hollywood gave a thumbs up to the indies at the filmmakers' reception at the W Hotel Tuesday. Actor Harrison Ford gave a short but sweet speech poolside to the Los Angeles Film Festival's participating directors who greeted him excitedly. Ford encouraged the filmmakers to think outside the box, saying, "conventional wisdom produces conventional movies, and that's about the last thing we need more of right now." Ford is serving as one of four honorary co-chairs at this year's festival.
