Westward Ho! TFF 2014 Kicks Off in LA

Filmmakers and celebs alike gathered at The Beverly Hilton on Monday night to celebrate the upcoming 13th annual Tribeca Film Festival.

Though we’re die-hard New Yorkers, it never hurts to spend a few dayson the West Coast, right? The stars aligned at The Beverly Hilton in the Stardust Penthouse last night for our Los Angeles cocktail reception celebrating the 2014 Tribeca Film Festival and our fantastic Festival slate.

We want to send out a big thank you to Hilton Hotels and Conrad Hotels for making our 6th annual LA kick-off party such a success. With TFF 2014 less than a month away, you can bet we’re also kicking into high gear back in the Big Apple.
