Lights! Camera! Action!
Silicon Valley had not one, but two Elite Events this past week in celebration of Cinequest Film Festival. Yelpers were treated to cocktail receptions and happy hours where they hobnobbed with actors and directors from the films last week.
Cinequest remains one of the last big festival bastions for the discovery of new and emerging film artists. Cinequest Film Festival (CQFF) presents a dynamic 13-day event of 200 international films with over 600+ film artists, technologists, and professionals from 44 countries in attendance. Over 10,000 artists have attended CQFF to date.
On Wednesday night, Elites met up at Il Fornaio to munch on appetizers and sip wine before heading over to see a screening of I Am at the California Theatre, with a Q&A session with the director after the film. And on Friday night, Elites were treated to a happy hour at Los Gatos Brewing Company and the premiere of Ceremony with Uma Thurman.
Yelper Tomomi S had this to say about the star-studded affair: "Thanks to Yelp I was able to have a date night with my husband – cocktail, dinner and movie on Friday night."
