In anticipation of tonight “25 New Faces” screening at the IFC Center in Manhattan, I thought I’d share a handful of images from the first festivities of the season for the 2013 alums, the superb week of “25 New Faces” events at The Grand Cinema in Tacoma, Washington. 2o of this year’s 25 were in Tacoma this year, in an event that I refer to as “summer camp for filmmakers.” Here’s a flavor of who was there and what went on…
The man who brought us all to Tacoma: The Grand Cinema’s Philip Cowan.
Elaine McMillion and Lyric R. Cabral. (Foreground: Nandan Rao’s back; background: a huge battleship on the Puget Sound.)
The boys picture: David Felix Sutcliffe, Ben Nabors, Pete Ohs and Rodrigo Reyes.
Smiles all round for Emily Carmichael and Mo Gorjestani.
Michael Tyburski and Iva Radivojevic (plus battleship).
Elaine McMillion captures Leah Shore, Emily Carmichael, Philip Cowan, Daniel Hart and Nandan Rao being a bit silly.
In black and white (1): Anahita Ghazvinizadeh.
In black and white (2): Nandan Rao.
The girls picture: Lauren Wolkstein, Eliza Hittman and Josephine Decker.
Andrew Droz Palermo.
Daniel Hart with Leah Shore.
Andrea Sisson and Iva Radivojevic.
Andrew Droz Palermo plus tree…
…and Katja Blichfeld plus tree.
Two sides of Josephine Decker: The Filmmaker…
…and the Athlete.
In a late night hotel room: Leah Shore, Jeremy Teicher and Ben Sinclair.
Anna Sandilands and Ewan McNicol were in Texas “filming” for much of the weekend…
…but were quick to get into the spirit of things once they arrived.
