The 2013 Phoenix Film Festival kicks off in style with the Opening Night Cocktail Party in the Party Pavilion. We've got a dozen restaurants on board to satisfy your appetite and sweet tooth.
In addition to food, we'll have drinks including Peroni as well as acoustic entertainment.
Restaurants participating include: America's Taco Shop, Carlos O'Briens, Grimaldi's, Kiki's Custom Cupcakes, Outback Steakhouse, Postino, Roy's, Short Leash Hot Dogs, Sprinkles, TK's Tavern, Tommy Bahama and Whole Foods.
Around 7pm, we'll head over to the Harkins Cine Capri for a 7:30 screening of the Arizona Premiere of "The Spectacular Now". Director James Ponsoldt will be on hand to participate in a post-screening Q&A.
Here's a little more information about the film:
The Spectacular Now stars Shailene Woodley, Mary Elizabeth Winstead, Miles Teller, Kyle Chandler and Jennifer Jason Leigh.
Synopsis: Sutter Keely lives in the now. It's a good place for him. A high school senior, charming and self-possessed, he's the life of the party, loves his job at a men's clothing store, and has no plans for the future. A budding alcoholic, he's never far from his supersized, whiskey-fortified thirst-master cup. But after being dumped by his girlfriend, Sutter gets drunk and wakes up on a lawn with Aimee Finicky hovering over him. She's different: the "nice girl" who reads science fiction and doesn't have a boyfriend. While Amy has dreams of a future, Sutter lives in the impressive delusion of a spectacular now, yet somehow, they're drawn together.
The Opening Night Event is also a fundraiser for the non-profit Phoenix Film Foundation which operates the Phoenix Film Festival and other film organizations. This is your opportunity to help support their student education programs through the silent auction and raffle.
