Crowd at the Newark Film Showcase After Party

After the historic, sold-out Film Showcase at CityPlex12, it was time for the after party. And not just any party. Held at Jimenez Tobacco Lounge, and hosted by the incomparable Peter Jimenez, the after party attracted about 200 happy people, including the featured director Yuri Alves (and DreamPlay Media Co-Founder), as well as Robert Wilmote (GRIND) and Tommy Cuba (ON THE CUSP).

Everyone was welcomed by red carpet adorned outdoor tent, the instant famous LED screen truck playing film excerpts and behind the scenes images, and knockout musical performances by The Velvet Trio, music by DJ Mavric and more. And then there was the food and drink situation: complimentary pizzas by Marcus B&P, seafood and more by Allegro Grill and film-inspired cocktails. Given the intensity of producing the night, only two weeks after our DREAMPLAY TV Sneak Preview Announcement, the DreamPlay team gladly partook in the food, drinks and music.
