On Opening Night of the Festival, we will be holding a tented reception, from 5:30-7:30 PM, on the beautiful water-front lawn adjacent to Saltwater, just off Beach Road. We’ll be serving cocktails (sponsored by Bombay Sapphire), wines, beer (Stella Artois) and appetizers (provided by Saltwater Restaurant) while Jeremy Berlin, Eric Johnson, and Sheleigh Hackett play live jazz and pop tunes under the tent. After the reception, guests will be invited to make their way to the Film Center for a special screening of IN A WORLD at 8 pm (see synopsis below).
IN A WORLD:
Lake Bell (“Children’s Hospital”) stars in In a World…, a hilarious romantic comedy about a struggling vocal coach who strikes it big in the cutthroat world of movie-trailer voiceovers, only to find herself in direct competition with the industry’s reigning king-her father. Written and directed by Bell, who won the Sundance 2013 Waldo Salt Screenwriting Award for the script, In a World… also stars Fred Melamed (A Serious Man), Rob Corddry (Hot Tub Time Machine), Demetri Martin (“Important Things with Demetri Martin”), Michaela Watkins (“Enlightened”), Ken Marino (“Burning Love”), Nick Offerman (“Parks and Recreation”), Alexandra Holden (The Hot Chick) and Tig Notaro (“The Sarah Silverman Program”).
Winner of 2013 Sundance Waldo Salt Screenwriting Award
A ticket for this film is good for admission to both the reception and the film itself. There will be no tickets sold for each event individually.
"The deliriously talented Lake Bell wrote, produced, directed and stars in this peculiar bit of comedy magic, set amid the cutthroat world of Hollywood voiceover artists."
-- John Anderson, Wall Street Journal
"Ms. Bell, who plays Carol with a perfect blend of diffidence, goofiness and charm, has written and directed an insightful comedy that is much more complex and ambitious than it sometimes seems."
--A.O. Scott, New York Times
