With a cocktail party for its friends and clients, M. Night Shyamalan’s Split winning the box office, and a showing of director Scott Ross’s Deer Squad: The Movie, Alkemy X had a very busy opening weekend at the 2017 Sundance Film Festival in Park City, Utah.
Recognising the importance of giving Philadelphia a presence at the prestigious film festival, one of the most important events in the entertainment industry, Alkemy X went west for the 13th consecutive year while Split, for which it served as the exclusive VFX provider, grossed more than $40 million as the No. 1 film in the US in its opening weekend.
Also at the festival, Alkemy X director Scott Ross showed his doc, Deer Squad: The Movie, about a high school student who became a viral sensation after befriending wild deer, to rave reviews. And, to kick off the festival, Alkemy X hosted a cocktail party honouring more than 150 of its closest friends, clients and A-lister attendees.
President & CEO Justin B. Wineburgh and VP of Business Development Bob Lowery welcomed guests, including Sharon Pinkenson, Executive Director of the Philadelphia Film Office, actor Elijah Wood, famed DJ Paul Oakenfold, music legend Carlos Santana, Executive Producer Mike Jackson of Get Lifted Film Co. (La La Land), producer Inuka Bacote and Stephanie Stahl of CBS Philly.
