Parties are such sweet sorrow

Inside Out hosts a party after each of its seven gala film screenings; they’ll all start around 10:30pm. The biggest parties will be the opening and closing events and the two parties at the Embassy.

If you have a $15 gala ticket to the screening just prior to the party; you’re in. Otherwise it’ll cost $10 at the door.
