And they're off... Frameline Opening Night

File Under: Reconnaissance

Last night Taro, Chi-hui, Khristine (intern) & I attended the opening night party for FRAMELINE 28. Michael & crew put on an amazingly good party. The event took place at City Hall to commemorate the strides that Gay & Lesbian marriage has had this year. The gala was fun with plenty of alcohol flowing and Jimi Mistry and Kyle Maclachlan representin'.

As always it's a social/work event. I go into these gala parties with darting eyes. And what do I see? There seems to be an increase in using projections and/or transparencies for logos on walls during opening night festivities. The special events planner utilized the space very creatively, breaking the party up into three rooms (1) the main foyer with a string quartet playing, (2) the live band covering disco-era music room, and (3) the quiet room with tables and very little ambient music. It worked out really well, the event didn't feel packed, but felt full of people. The flow of the crowd was pretty awesome and one didn't have to wait more than 5-10 minutes in the busiest of lines (for alcohol).

Frameline rocks! Catch a movie if you get a chance, the Festival runs through June 27th.
