GREENWICH, Conn. - The stars turned out at the Bow Tie Cinemas in Greenwich on Friday evening as Colin Hanks, son of Academy Award winner Tom Hanks, hosted the premiere of his documentary, "All Things Must Pass," at the inaugural Greenwich International Film Festival.

Several actors and insiders from the film attended the screening along with Hanks, who made his directorial debut with the film, about the rise and fall of Tower Records. Jenna Bush Hager, daughter of President George W. Bush, was in attendance as well, along the the founders of GIFF.

The Greenwich International Film Festival is a nonprofit organization that launched a world-class film festival in Greenwich this weekend. It was founded to bridge the worlds of film, finance, and philanthropy.

The festival’s mission is to provide filmmakers with the opportunity to showcase their work with the goal of finding financing and distribution. Additionally, GIFF will harness the power of film to serve the greater good by supporting the U.S. Fund for UNICEF with proceeds from the festival. The four-day festival featured more than 25 carefully curated films, an opening night party, panels, receptions, and an honoree gala. The festival, and its supporting events throughout the year, will help to create a burgeoning visual arts community in Greenwich and beyond.
