Delicious! Catering was honored to be part of the post screening party for the new film Lion starring Nicole Kidman, who was also the guest of honor at the party. The movie was screened on Sunday, Oct 9th at the Century Cinema in Corte Madera as part of the 39th Annual Mill Valley Film Festival. The post screening party took place at Maple Lawn in San Rafael. The guests enjoyed nibbling on appetizers that included Pomegranate Beef Skewers, Vietnamese Rice Paper Spring Rolls, and a crowd favorite, Mac and Cheese Bites.
Prior to the screening, Nicole took part in an onstage conversation and received the prestigious Tribute Award – given in recognition of a career that exemplifies the art of great acting. Nicole has received an Emmy nomination for her portrayal of Martha Gellhorn in HBO’s Hemmingway and Gellhorn., and received the Academy Award for Best Actress for her role in The Hours. Other films she has been in include Far and Away, Dead Calm, Eyes Wide Shut, Moulin Rouge and Cold Mountain.
Her latest film continues to honor her artistic endeavors. Lion, also starring Dev Patel and directed by Garth Davis, recreates the amazingly true story of one man’s extraordinary quest to find his birth family. For 39 years, the Mill Valley Film Festival has been renowned for bringing amazing movies and big name actors/actress/directors to Marin for their annual film festival. This year is no different.
We have been doing events for the Mill Valley Film Festival and the CA Film Institute for over 30 years and look forward to continuing the successful relationship!
