In anticipation of the release of the crime thriller, Catch the Fair One, a pre-party was hosted at the Nearly Ninth Lounge at the Arlo in Midtown on June 13th during the Tribeca Film Festival.
Made up of producers, journalists, PR specialists, and aspiring filmmakers, the party felt like an ecstatic sigh of relief. The talk was about how everyone felt during the clutch of COVID, unable to mingle, shoot their pitches, press the flesh, and discuss their latest projects. The vibe in the room was ecstatic, with everyone excited to go back to in-person screenings. There were questions about whether film festivals will maintain the online format, but the general feel is outdoor theatric screenings are just more communal and fun.
Among the party guests, the filmmakers for Catch the Fair One arrived to discuss the film and the festival. Producer Darren Aronofsky, director Josef Wladyka, and star, boxer Kali “K.O.” Reis arrived at the scene, mingling with guests. We met the founders of PAC Protocol, a premier technology and blockchain partner. The PAC server acts as a vast, large, and cost-effective method of transferring and storing data globally. The food was a delicious assortment of more vegetarian options, including mouth-savoring mushroom pizza and crunchy artichokes. The drinks were courtesy of Grey Goose Essences, Billionaires Row champagne, and Peroni Nastro Azzurro from Molson Coors Beverage Company, all of which were used for delicious mixes. The event was fun, fitting to preempt the excellent film Catch the Fair One.
Catch the Fair One is currently available to rent via virtual cinema through The Tribeca Film Festival here. The evening was presented by A-List Communications’ Supper Suite Series.
