IFC in L.A.
IFC in L.A.
IFC Films and Blockbuster Video hosted a party on Tuesday night in L.A., at the terrific Sunset Marquis hotel (home to the annual SXSW Music Festival L.A. party). It was a really pleasant affair, honoring some of IFC’s films at the Los Angeles Film Festival (Medicine For Melancholy, The Pleasure of Being Robbed, etc), as well as uniting more familiar/friendly faces that I’d seen under one roof the entire trip. Here are some moments:
(Enjoying the great evening, left to right: Medicine For Melancholy producer Amy Seimetz, Pleasure of Being Robbed director Josh Safdie, Spout blogger Karina Longworth, and filmmaker/programmer/journalist Michael Lerman.)
(Former Austinites in the house. Seth Caplan, left, produced In Search of a Midnight Kiss, which was written and directed by the talented Mr. Alex Holdridge on the right. The film recently opened well in the UK, and IFC will bring it stateside in August. See it!)
(After the IFC party, almost everyone headed back to Westwood for the Target Red Room’s annual festivities. That’s where I reconnected with IFC Films’ Ryan Werner and Medicine For Melancholy writer/director Barry Jenkins.)
