IFP Week 2005.2

IFP Week 2005.2

The IFP Market wrapped, announcing its winners. I saw some great films-in-progress and attended some informative panels. Everyone was amping up for this weekend’s kick-off of the New York Film Festival, and I would have tried to stay if not for many events (some fun and some potentially tragic) happening in Austin. Here’s some of the rest of my time at IFP Week 2005:

Or, it’s just film writers Mark Rabinowitz, left, and Anthony Kaufman riffing on film gossip on the subway Wednesday night. The sitcom will be sharper than this pic.)

(On Wednesday night, there was a premiere party at Tribeca Cinemas for Sundance-winning feature, 40 Shades of Blue. Among the guests were Film Sales Company rep Jared Moshe, right, here with Elma Cremin, formerly of Trio but now with upstart cable network, Lime TV.)
