STF had a sold out crowd on Tuesday for OF ALL THE THINGS, the sweet and funny story of songwriter Dennis Lambert making a comeback tour in the Philippines. The night was co-presented by the SXSW film festival which gave the film its world premiere in March. SXSW’s new programmer Janet Pierson flew up from Austin to introduce the film. In recent months, OF ALL THE THINGS has been collecting Audience Awards at other fests including Nantucket, Sarasota and Palm Beach. The sales agent Josh Braun is still working to close a distribution deal in a market of cautious buyers. Judging from the STF audience, the film should enjoy a long future of enthusiastic viewers.

After the show, the STF gang headed over to La Lanterna for food and drinks. Here are some pictures from the night:
