The leap from cult-loved to icon territory isn't easy. But it's a lot more compelling when you've got the goods to back it up.

This week, Persol eyewear's Typewriter Edition takes over the Spring Studios Tribeca Film Festival Lounge for cocktails and conversation celebrating the creative process and the craft of screenwriting itself.

Join us for a screening of Persol's new short film written and directed by Bret Easton Ellis, followed by intimate one-on-one chats with three of the industry's most dynamic modern filmmakers — all of whom are screening fresh work at TFF2015.

Don't be shy. Bring a friend. And by all means, discuss amongst yourselves.
