Saturday night, I attended the SFIFF Centerpiece Film party at the Clift hotel and took with me Ben the videographer who made me ask questions about “the film.” Oh, you mean these parties aren’t the point of a throwing film festival? I had no idea. While I certainly did see 500 Days of Summer stars Zooey Deschanel and Joseph Gordon-Levitt, we were informed that they weren’t up for interviews, which is too bad because I was hoping to get JGL to do the Angels in the Outfield arm flap for us.
I can report that the upstairs lounge of the Clift is very much Will & Grace episode-esque and that old lady with the blue drink told me my horoscope. If I were writing for a suburban free newspaper, I would give this shindig 3 out of 5 cosmos. But stay tuned. I’m going to try and worm my way into the closing night party, so here’s hoping I can bring you guys a bar fight or celebrity crotch shot.
