Empire Beauty: Tribeca Film Festival 2011

Every year I attend the Tribeca Film Festivals Drive-in. I love this event! It’s one of the festivals FREE events held in the Financial building in Battery Park right on the Hudson. Its beautiful watching the sun set, watching the boats pass. This year it was like 23 degrees out there… it was survival of the fittest. I recommend taking a blanket with you cause it can get pretty nippy right by the water most years. Still, despite the punishing temperatures that snuck up on the crowd (…cause it started out nice), It’s one of those events where the atmosphere is completely cool… Strangers are conversing, taking turns watching each others things as alternating groups go to enjoy the free festivities before the main event. The themes always change so each year your left in anticipation awaiting the brand new line up. One year its Dirty Dancing, the next its Micheal Jacksons Thriller, or I’ve even experienced A Short Film Contest, where the audience were the judges…. This year it was the 80’s Classic Fame, The Muppets take Manhattan and a doc called when the drum is beating! You never know if your going to rub elbows with well know producers, directors or celebs! Not that people attend for this purpose, the fact is, most attend for the shared love of film and because everything down to the drinks and popcorn are free of course! Get more Behind the scenes and scoop inside!

My instant Buddies!!! They come baring gifts…Cant watch a film without Popcorn!

Vitamin water sponsored the event along with Timewarner! Lucky me I LOVE vitamin water~ Power-C ~ woooo whoooo!

This was the host Abe Goldfarb… He’s an actor, writer, director and  Burlesque personality, as well as, this years Tribeca Film Festivals Drive-in Host! He was super nice and had all around good energy.

These dancers got alot of slack from an extremely critical audience but I dug the performance.
