The Bermuda International Film Festival kicked off the 2013 event by throwing itself a “Sweet 16″-themed launch party last Friday [Apr. 12]. Margaritas on Bermudiana Road hosted the Hollywood-inspired party to mark the sixteenth anniversary of BIFF.
BIFF attendees rubbed shoulders with visiting film directors and actors, jury members, the overseas film media and other movie industry movers and shakers.
“There was no cover charge as BIFF wanted the public to come along, soak up the atmosphere and celebrate one of the island most exciting cultural events,” said a film festival spokesman.
BIFF wraps up tomorrow [Apr. 18] with this year’s closing film “Girl Most Likely” starring Kristen Wiig, Annette Bening and Matt Dillon.
The comedy, which premiered at the 2012 Toronto International Film Festival, doesn’t get released in the US until July.
That screening will be followed by a wrap party at Margaritas from 9 p.m. until the wee hours.
