While this year was a little bit of a departure from previous years’ media-only presentations, we figured what better way to ring in the film fest with a very L.A.-esque party around an azure pool in a candlelit backyard?

Cocktails flowed while handsome caterers carried trays of delectable hors d’oeuvres. And what would a film festival party be without movie snacks?! Guests munched on salty theatre-style popcorn and were like kids in a candy store loading up take-out boxes with jelly beans, chocolate pretzels, and of course, a glorious assortment of Baker Street cupcakes.

We don’t want to be boast, but we think the film festival may have a hard time living up to our kick-off party! NKPR will be at the helm of other film fest events. Check out all the details on our IT Lounge microsite!
