Toasting 100 years of Variety

Industryites fete weekly paper's century mark

As part of its 100th anniversary celebration Variety hosted a cocktail bash Sunday evening at its Beach Club headquarters.

Some 300 guests of the paper showed up to toast Weekly Variety‘s birthday and mingle with Variety‘s editors, reporters, marketing and sales execs.

The paper has chronicled the goings-on on the Croisette since the Cannes festival began in earnest right after World War II.

Among those making scene were CAA agent Tracey Brennan, Crystal Sky exec Benedict Carver, Mandate’s Joe Drake, Focus’ David Linde, Bavaria Film’s Thorsten Ritter and the Bangkok Fest’s Siriwan Juthamas.
