Sydney Film Festival 2012 Opening Night – Vodka O what a night, Not Suitable For Children, After Party and The Hub – photos and stories

Vodka O VIP party at the Marble Bar kicks off Sydney Film Festival 2012 Opening Night
Vodka O sponsored a VIP pre-party for opening night of the Sydney Film Festival 2012 at the Marble Bar in the Sydney Hilton Hotel for invited industry and celebrity guests from Australia and around the Globe.  Guest  included, most notably, Bruce Davey, President of Icon Productions, who is considered one of the most influential people in film today.  Vodka O cocktails and canapes were eagerly snapped up by invitees as a Festival kick-off prior to everyone  heading the the State Theatre.

Not Suitable For Children Opening Night Film for SFF 2012 at State Theatre Sydney
Sydney Film Festival 2012 opening night film was an Australian romantic comedy, ‘Not Suitable For Children’ starring Ryan Kwanten (Jonah), Sarah Snook (Stevie) and Ryan Corr (Gus).  At last!  An Australian movie that can make you laugh with beleivable characters that the audience can connection with and ‘feel for’.

Not Suitable For Children’s, main character, Jonah, a ‘live in the moment’ twenty something ,  seeks to father a child in reel quick time after having been diagnosed with testicular cancer and facing an imminent operation for the removal of a testicle.

NSW Minister for the Arts, George Souris and Sydney’s Lord Mayor, Clover Moore welcomed opening night guests to the State Theatre for the ‘Not Suitable For Children’ screening. 

Peter Templeman, Director of ‘Not Suitable For Children’, then proceeded to charm the audience with his witty informal chat about the film.  Peter could teach our Australian politicians a trick or two about how a generous helping of some self depreciating humour goes a long way with wooing the crowd.

SFF 2012 After Party at Bungalow 8
Sydney Film Festival 2012’s After Party required guests to brave the slanting rain to thread and puddle jump their way down to Bungalow 8 on King Street Wharf.  Fortunately MiSociety was not amongst those souls who found themselves misdirected into Hyde Park.  

Bungalow 8 was packed to the rafters with SFF partygoers continuing to dodge the puddles in their quest for a drink and sustenance for what was desrined to be a long night.

MiSociety’s main quest here was to meet and congratulate the stars and makers of ‘Not Suitable For Children’ as we had been so impressed by them in the film.  Sarah Snook, stunning in a classic white dress, was refreshingly bubbly and unassuming while happily posing for photographs.  Ryan Corr spoke to us at length about the movie and continued to impress us with his warm and charming personality.  What a treat to meet two young talented Australian actors who are also articulate and socially adept.

Sydney Film Festival 2012 ‘meeting spot’ The Hub under Sydney Town Hall
 ‘The Hub’ at Lower Town Hall was opened by City of Sydney Councillor, Phillip Black, the following evening.  The Hub is the SFF 2012 Hub for exhibitions, talks, parties, live music, performances, DJs and screenings. ‘The Hub’ opening exhibition ‘Role/Play’ by photographer Fabrizio Maltese is a collection of  iconic film stars’ photographic portraits.
