Sundance Film Festival 2009, Opening Night [Party Pics]


The nightlife scene for this year’s festival got underway last night with a party thrown at The Sundance Lift in honor of the opening night film, Mary and Max. The crowd packed in under the tent at the base of the life to congratulate the film’s director Adam Elliot and producer Melanie Coombs — or maybe it free flowing Le Tourment Vert absinthe cocktails that lured them in. Sting was on hand to get stung by the legendary green fairy, and so were the other happy festival goers featured in photographs after the jump.
