Philadelphia Film Festival
For the past three years, The Nouveau Image has worked with the Philadelphia Film Society for their annual Philadelphia Film Festival. The Philadelphia Film Festival is a two-week event, showcasing excellent films and drawing over 30,000 festivalgoers including students, film lovers, and film industry heavyweights. The festival features film premieres, panel discussions, Q+A’s, networking events, parties, and an awards reception. It is regarded as one of the most important cultural events in the city and is highly anticipated every year.
The Nouveau Image has been responsible for organizing and managing the film festival’s VIP Lounge. With the promotion of Sigma Sound in mind, The Nouveau Image hosted the VIP Lounge in the studio’s upstairs event space. This past year, The Nouveau Image hosted the lounge in Philadelphia Eagles player, longtime friend, and client Brent Celek’s 879 Lounge in Olde City. Guests enjoyed sets from some of the hottest DJs in Philly as they mingled with entertainment industry heavyweights and Philadelphia socialites. Guests also enjoyed food and beverages from vitamin water, Smart Water, Kind Bars, and Prime Stache. Guests also received gift bags with items from sponsors such as Agent 18, the Greater Philadelphia Film Office, Ritz Film Magazine, Kind Bars, Spec, Goodie Hair Ties, Pretzel Crisps, and Pirate’s Booty among others.
The Nouveau Image has also organized events for the festival outside of the VIP Lounge. In 2010, The Nouveau Image organized an event at Sumo Lounge for Stewart Bradley. The Nouveau Image also organized an event for Tweed Restaurant called “The Best and The Brightest.” The event brought together the who’s who of the film industry to mingle and to celebrate the release of the movie by the same title. The following year, The Nouveau Image organized a 3D art show for Philadelphia based visual artist Ivben Taqiy.
The Nouveau Image’s services consistently help to provide festival goers with a positive experience. The brands involved with the festival always report having positive experiences. Despite each year’s success, The Nouveau Image team continues to work to make their partnership with the festival better than the last.
