We headed over to Josephina’s for the ND/NF Directors Party. Spirits were high even though the place was as packed as a subway car at rush hour. Nevertheless, everyone managed to indulge themselves in the copious food & drink and to have a rollicking good time.”

HBO Films and Stella Artois generously sponsored the New Directors/New Films Directors' Party. Special thanks also to the staff at Josephina who helped make the evening so special.

Photographer David Godlis caught the partygoers in action.
