Greenwich Film Festival June 4-7

The Greenwich Film Festival is taking place this year on June 4 - June 7 and will kick off with the premiere screening of Colin Hanks' directorial debut ALL THINGS MUST PASS. Following the screening, U.S. Trust will host the Opening Night Party at Restoration Hardware on Greenwich Avenue. The Bill & Anne Bresnan Social Impact Award will be announced at the reception, where GIFF board member Jenna Bush Hager will serve as Master of Ceremonies.

ALL THING MUST PASS is an inside look at the rise and fall of the once ubiquitous Tower Records. How could a business go from a net worth of 1 billion dollars to complete bankruptcy in just 5 years? Colin Hanks' directorial debut examines this question and more, tracking the meteoric rise and tragic fall of the Tower Records empire and its tight-knit staff whose bond proved stronger than its fate. This sentimental and richly woven documentary is equal parts nostalgia and powerful, weaving stories of the employees who started the first store in Sacramento with the failures that led to its crash. The film features interviews with Russ Solomon, Stan Goman, Heidi Cotler, Mark Viducich, Dave Grohl, Elton John, Bruce Springsteen and David Geffen.
The full program of films, panels and special events will be announced by GIFF in the coming weeks. Passes are currently available for purchase and tickets will be on sale starting May 1 at http://www.greenwichfilm.org/passes/.
