Then there was that one time when the Tribeca Film Festival came to Distilled NY…

Tribeca Film Festival

We were thrilled to sponsor the Tribeca Film Festival this year and celebrate this amazing organization, along with the many talented storytellers and film enthusiasts taking part. And it was quite a festival!

The festivities kicked off with an opening party held at Distilled and featured guests-of-honor, Robert De Niro and Jane Rosenthal for a meet & greet and kick-off toast.

We also hosted premiere parties for the film, Girl Band, and ESPN’s documentary, OJ Made in America.

Festival attendees received a complimentary cocktail called the Director’s Cut all week long.

And we held our first online contest, giving one lucky winner 2 VIP All-Access passes. This guy won:


Congrats again to Chris!

We were giving away passes and drinks to lucky festival goers.

Then we took to the streets for the Tribeca Film Festival Street Fair, TRIBECA ON LOCATION, where we got to hang with our regulars and hand out some wings.

Kyle and Adam got a surprise visit from Distilled alum and friend, Annaliza.

And somewhere in between, Nick squeezed in a little play time.
