Centerpiece Gala at NFFTY 201204/11/2012
The compelling stories of this year’s Centerpiece Gala are sure to be a highlight of the weekend, followed by the exclusive after-party hosted by Xbox 360® on Saturday night.
This year’s Centerpiece program features four narrative pieces and one stunning documentary It Ain’t Over, from NFFTY Alumni Caleb Slain, that premiered at the South by Southwest Film Festival last month. Another alumni in the screening is Dom Fera, who’s film The End adds a new twist to the teen superhero genre, “17-year-old Brendon McKellar is instantly shown the end of his relationship with any new person he meets– whether he wants to see it or not.”
Two films from Europe are in the screening as well, The Beach House from England, and Cover Up from Station Next, the Danish Filmmaking High School. All the films share a common thread of Perception, and how we perceive the world around us, the emotions of others, and even ourselves. Your ticket to Centerpiece Shorts Saturday night includes entry to the after party so be to sure not to miss out!
And don’t forget, your Festival Pass or any NFFTY ticket stub will get you into the Centerpiece Gala presented by Xbox 360® at the Intiman Theatre, located at Seattle Center. The party will have a dance floor with live DJs, Xbox LIVE Demos, Dante’s Inferno Dog Cart, and a rad photo booth.
