Manhattan Screenings: Roof with a view

Bows at, or rather on, the Gershwin Hotel

“We Married Margo,” starring J.D. Shapiro, Kylie Bax, Cindy Crawford, Kevin Bacon and Payne Stewart, will kick off the Manhattan Screenings, which bows at the Gershwin Hotel today and runs through Sept. 13.

The Manhattan Screenings, designed to screen films for the purpose of acquiring distribution, will take place once a week on Wednesday evenings on the roof of the Gershwin Hotel. Selection of films is chosen by a six-member board: Alberto Barbera, director of the Venice Film Festival; John Cooper, director of programming of the Sundance Film Festival; Steve Gravestock, director of programming of the Toronto International Film Festival; Sarah Lutton, director of programming of the London Film Festival; Dan Mirvish, director of the Slamdance Film Festival; and Mick Hannigan, director of the Cork International Film Festival.

Near distribution companies

“Showing these films to a select audience on the roof of a hotel in Midtown New York, within five miles of at least 22 distribution companies, is an idea that’s just waiting to happen,” said board member Alberto Barbera.

“We Married Margo,” which preemed at this year’s Slamdance Festival, won the Audience Award at the U.S. Comedy Arts Festival. Other films to be screened include the Irish Film Board’s “Love Divided” and “La Sonumbla.”
