    Clooney Introduces Dianne Reeves at NYFF opening night on Friday

    "Good Night, and Good Luck" director/co-writer George Clooney spent a good deal of the evening working the legions of well-heeled well-wishers at Tavern on the Green in Central Park Friday night for the party part of the New York Film Festival's opening gala. The night began with a screening of his film, and crowds packed Tavern until the staff ended the party close to its 2am cut-off time. Clooney dutifully thanked people for their glowing support, and talk around the event, even outside earshot of Clooney, was that the film is pretty damn good, and a terrific NYFF opener. Clooney is seen here introducing Grammy Award-winning singer Dianne Reeves who also performs in the film. Clooney then continued with his never-ending meet-and-greet (what a good sport).

    NYFF: After Party

    There was the New York Film Festival's official party at Tavern on the Green, and then there was the after-party (or at least one of them) downtown, which brought a cross-section of New York film folks that skewed on the younger side. This particular party lasted at a Greenwhich Village nightspot until 6am (and yes, they were serving), is that legal? Pictured here all dressed up and looking fine were (left to right) Ben Stambler from Magnolia Pictures, Dana O'Keefe from Cinetic, Tamara Lecker from Samuel Goldwyn Films, and Peter Goldwyn from (you guessed it) Samuel Goldwyn as well.

    Bingham & Bennett (and Solondz?)

    Former United Artists chief Bingham Ray is pictured at the opening night party with "Capote" director Bennett Miller. The former UA produced Miller's film, which stars Philip Seymour Hoffman as a Truman Capote, after Ray left the company, but the legendary unit was later sold to Sony Pictures as part of the bigger deal for MGM, paving the way for Sony Pictures Classics to take over the distribution of the movie. Not pictured here is filmmaker Todd Solondz who worked with Ray on "Happiness" back in the old October Films days and was standing next to Bennett. The politely camera shy Solondz declined to pose for the picture...

    Jeff, Laura, and Jesse at "The Squid and the Whale" Premiere

    "The Squid and the Whale" stars Jeff Daniels, Jesse Eisenberg and Laura Linney joined a fun crowd for the New York premiere of their film, which screened Monday night at the New York Film Festival. The party was aptly held at the American Museum of Natural History on the Upper West Side in the facility's Milstein Hall of Ocean Life. Attendees gave kudos to the film, which won the screenwriting and director's award this year at Sundance for Noah Baumbach.

    Baumbach and Silberman at the Natural History Museum

    "The Squid and the Whale" director Noah Baumbach (right) spent some time chatting with IDP head Michael Silberman during the after-party at the American Museum of Natural History following the screening of the film at the New York Film Festival. Not pictured high above is a huge blue whale that dominates the cavernous Milstein Hall of Ocean Life. Samuel Goldwyn Films an IDP partner, and Sony Pictures International Releasing hosted the very fun party, which some guests of the circuit called one of the year's best.

    Waters and the Goldwyns Meet Up Finally at "The Squid and the Whale" Premiere

    Pink Floyd's song "Hey You" is featured prominently in Noah Baumbach's "The Squid and the Whale," so a perfect excuse to invite former Pink Floyd bandmember Roger Waters (left) to the party for the film, held Monday night at the American Museum of Natural History. Many party attendees were hoping to sneak a chat with the music legend, and some even sat down for some pretty lengthy chats with Waters, who seemed very casual about the whole thing. At one point, Samuel Goldwyn Films head, Samuel Goldwyn, Jr. (middle) happened by along with the company's acquisitions exec, Peter Goldwyn, so we orchestrated this "impromptu" photo.

    Barker, Bernard and Stringer Toast "Capote"

    In New York last night, Sony Corporation Chairman and CEO Sir Howard Stringer (center, the first non-Japanese chairman of the company) joined Sony Pictures Classics co-presidents Michael Barker (left) and Tom Bernard (right) in toasting the New York Film Festival premiere of Bennett Miller's "Capote." Pictured here before sitting down to dinner at Cafe Des Artistes, the trio welcomed a restaurant full of cast, crew, friends and journalists, including the film's stars Philip Seymour Hoffman, Catherine Keener, Chris Cooper, and Clifton Collins, Jr. The film was a hot ticket at the NYFF, garnering a standing ovation from the warm audience after the screening. Sony execs must be quite proud of Miller, who has become quite a poster boy for their company. The director made his first feature, the 1997 doc "The Cruise", using a small Sony DV camera and fter making his new film for United Artsts, that company was swallowed up by Sony Corporation as part of the deal for MGM, leading Sony Classics to take on the release.

    A Nice Reunion...

    Offering a bit of perspective this caption, Duopoly's Liz Manne (pictured left) called this iPOP image (from the opening night of the New York Film Festival Friday), a "nice reunion shot." She is pictured (from left to right) with Ira Deutchman, producer Fred Berner ("Pollock"), and producer Peter Newman ("The Squid and the Whale") and explained, "We four were office mates a long time ago...I worked for Ira at The Deutchman Company, plus Fred Berner Films, plus Peter Newman Productions. This was after Cinecom, before Fine Line." Manne would later join Deutchman in launching Fine Line Features, where Fred and Peter had producing deals. Manne added that she and Berner now live together.
