ACEFEST 2009

Although we toned-down the usual glitz of ACEFEST this year due to an unforgiving economy, it turned-out to be our most successful event yet! We brought the festival back to basics and put 100% of our emphasis and energy on the films themselves. Several screenings were completely sold out with patrons come from as far as Holland and as close as next door.

The legendary Tribeca Cinemas in Manhattan's Financial District was the perfect exhibition forum for ACEFEST 2009. The technology and expertise they offered our selected filmmakers was unprecedented. We look forward to having future screenings and parties at this facility.
 

Event Highlights

+ 2 full days of American independent film, including several premieres
+ Filmmaker talk-backs and introductions throughout the 2-day program
+ On-Site bar and lounge with drink specials all weekend
+ Opening night after party at the exclusive Luxe lounge
+ Closing night after party with free Pabst Blue Ribbon and 3 live bands
