IFC throws celeb-heavy anni soiree

Prexy Dore hosted event mixing many personalities

The Hotel du Cap, which last week lodged the casts of “Shrek 2” and “Troy,” on Tuesday night became the center of gravity for New York’s independent film scene as IFC marked its 10th anniversary with a rollicking party, co-sponsored by Target.

IFC Cos. prexy Kathy Dore presided over a stately dinner in the hotel’s Cliffside, Colonial-style dining room, the prelude to a latenight schmooze spilling across the bar, terrace and villa.

Among the IFC personnel scattered across the dining room were IFC Television exec VP-general manager Ed Carroll, IFC Films senior VP of production Caroline Kaplan, IFC entertainment prexy Jonathan Sehring and IFC Television exec VP of affiliate sales and marketing Gregg Hill.

Also present were Javier Bardem, Kevin Bacon and Kyra Sedgwick, Xan Cassavetes and Gary Winick. A second wave arrived after dinner: Roman Polanski, Billy Bob Thornton, Quentin Tarantino, Brett Ratner and Serena Williams.

At one point Bardem and Gael Garcia Bernal crooned in Spanish in the lobby of the villa.

Party also featured perhaps the highest concentration of film reviewers outside a National Society of Film Critics meeting, including Richard Schickel, Roger Ebert, A.O. Scott, Manohla Dargis and Richard Corliss.
