Pre-Memorial Day Update

The "Elliot Loves" fundraiser this week was a huge success. I don't yet have pix, but I'll post some next week. Again, I want to thank our very generous sponsors: Heineken, People en Espanol, .mark cosmetics, Film Comment, Macy's and Cafe Bustelo. You're all amazing!

We have officially locked the NYILFF Closing Night film. Phew! Look for the announcement on Tuesday!

Johnnie Walker is officially presenting the NYILFF Opening Night film. Woo-hoo!

Fantastic news. And, yet, hard to celebrate when I'm still not nearly done with sponsorship. The fest is only 2 months away. UGH.

On a personal tip, I'm super excited to see "Sex and the City 2" tomorrow afternoon with my friend, Kat, from HBO. Nothing like a fun, chick-flick to brighten what is supposed to be a stormy Saturday.

Happy Memorial Day Weekend!!

Congratulations on locking down the NYILFF Closing Night film and an Opening Night sponsor! Each event on it's own is huge news, but together that makes for an incredible week! Enjoy "Sex and the City 2" tomorrow! I was an extra as one of the limo drivers in a scene involving a premiere at the Ziegfield. I'd tell you more, but I've already said too much...
