VISIONFEST: The Other Festival is proud to announce the first 'sold out' program of its 15th anniversary edition:  The OFFICIAL CENTERPIECE SELECTION SCREENING,  Program 05, an LGBT-themed program block featuring the New York Premiere of the highly anticipated mob-rom-com, ALTO, by Mikki del Monico, and the narrative short, MOON PEOPLE, by Alexandra Grace, which is  also making its New York debut.

The program, scheduled for Friday, May 15th at 7:00 p.m. and subtitled "Visions of Love, Family, and the LGBT Section," is also the one block in the line-up that had already been planned as a double screening room event, being simulcast in both Tribeca Cinemas 1&2.  The 'anticipation factor' for ALTO was so high in New York, that advance online tickets had been sold out for the Tribeca Cinemas 2 theater within the first day that they had been made available.  Less than a week later, the Tribeca Cinemas 1 theater sold its last two seats, prompting VF15 organizers to immediately open sales on an added screening a 9:15 p.m encore presentation, in TC 1, since TC 2 is already hosting the festival's second shorts block, Program 06, "Visions of the Taut and Fantastic."

To facilitate a Q&A with cast and crew members from ALTO and MOON PEOPLE, audiences from the TC 1&2 show at 7:00 p.m. will spill out into The Varick Room, the venue's popular bar/lounge area, where a sizzling after-party is also scheduled to take place.  Drink specials, live music, the Musical Visions photo exhibit by Mark Doyle, step and repeat photo ops, and other fun surprises are among the highlights planned for that evening.  Audiences from the TC 1 encore and the TC 2 shorts block will eventually join the party, which promises to be an evening to remember...  especially since...


A Domani Vision Film Society panel will be voting for the most creative, most interesting selfie taken at Visionfest 15 and posted and/or linked to the Visionfest - Domani Vision Film Society Facebook Page on any day throughout the duration of the event.  The author of the image (which can also be a group shot) selected by DVFS as their "favorite" will receive a pair of full access, complimentary passes to next year's festival, VF16!  Photo bombing is allowed but will not win you tickets... just notoriety :)
