The Tribeca Film Festival is in full flower with screenings, parties and the all-important after parties packed with boldfacers. But not all the celebrities are starring in the festival selections. Some are looking towards the future. From Fashionweekdaily:
"The Tribeca Film Festival was once a neighborhood affair, but times have changed. (In this case, that's a good thing.) Last night, the organization and Vanity Fair hosted a dinner at the State Supreme Courthouse to kick off the week, and Graydon Carter and Co. couldn't disappoint if they tried. Designers, billionaires, rock stars, directors, and the city's most notorious wives joined hosts Robert De Niro, Carter and Ron Perelman in what the actor described as 'our annual family date.' No wonder Carter looked so blissful. "This is about a 1.5 on a 10-point scale of stress compared to the Oscar madness," he sighed. 'I was writing for most of the day, and helped with the seating, sat at the Waverly Inn and Monkey Bar, and came here trying to look smart. The event is about sheer momentum. And it's also a job fair!'
"Christopher Walken confirmed the editor's theory ten minutes into the cocktail hour. He entered the party with his wife and looked around the room filled with the likes of Jane Rosenthal, Edie Falco, Fran Lebowitz, Sandy Brant and Ingrid Sischy, Vivi Nevo, John McEnroe and Patti Smyth, Jeff Koons, Peggy Siegal, Kathy and Tom Freston, Lizzie and Jonathan Tisch, Nick Rhodes, Andre Balazs, Lee Radziwill, Tory Burch, Ivanka Trump and Jared Kushner, and Josh Lucas. 'It's nice to schmooze, see these people, and look at architecture,' Walken said, brandishing a glass of champagne. 'But I'm also looking forward to getting a job in the near future!'"
As always, Christopher Walken gets to the meat of things.
