What was the best way for us to kick off the Tribeca Film Festival? Premiere our own video series A Fairweather Moment at the New York Public Library of the Performing Arts. Last night, we welcomed guests to the Bruno Walter Auditorium for an exclusive screening of our first three episodes which featured the musically talented Carpenter siblings, Chef Stephanie Nass, and fashion designer Daniel Silverstain. Each interview, filmed within homes and workplaces, offered intimate views of the artists in conversation with Fairweather's Editor-in-Chief, Alexandra Fairweather.
These short episodes act as mini biopics with Alexandra inquiring about the catalysts of the artists’ passions as well as having them show off their skills. The series will continue with more exciting interviews of various tastemakers and influencers around the city. Following the screening, Stephanie and Daniel joined Guild Hall residents, poet Tom Yuill and novelist Iris Smyles onstage with Alexandra for an enlightening Q&A. With humor and a bit of existentialism philosophy, these artists discussed their works in relation to themselves and more importantly, New York City, a common thread which bound all four.
Following the event, guests received bags filled with our organic juice and tea line Hottie Tottie as well as delicious cookies from Eleni’s Bakery in Chelsea Market. In all, this event was the perfect beginning to a week of great films and we are happy to have been able to bring the art of these talented men and women to a fantastic audience. Stay tuned for more videos in our A Fairweather Moment series.
