IFP LAUNCHES "FIRST WEEKEND" SERIES
IFP announced today the launch of First Weekend, a new program that seeks to connect audiences directly with new independent films. The first film profiled in the series will be Lance Hammer‘s Ballast.
From the release:
“First Weekend” series will be a quarterly program designed to guarantee sold out shows during a self-distributed film’s opening weekend. In purchasing a $25 ticket and supporting the series, audiences are directly supporting truly independent films and filmmakers. The full box-office proceeds will go directly toward the film’s theatrical run. The audience also gets to join in a post screening conversation hosted by a notable personality and attend an exclusive after party in celebration of the film.
Date: Thursday, October 2 at 8pm
Location: Film Forum, 209 West Houston Street, NYC. Details on the private after-party provided upon purchase of ticket.
