“NYTVF’s third annual Premiere Week screening series, taking place September 12-17 during the NYTVF.

All Premiere Week events will take place at New World Stages in Midtown Manhattan.
Saturday, September 13, 8 PM: FOX’s “Fringe”
On Saturday, September 13th, the NYTVF and FOX will present a special screening event featuring “Fringe,” the anticipated new hour-long thriller from J.J. Abrams (“Lost”), Roberto Orci and Alex Kurtzman, the team behind “Star Trek,” “Mission: Impossible III” and “Alias.” The event begins with red-carpet arrivals of the stars and producers of the new series followed by a screening. After the screening, “Fringe” cast and producers will engage in a brief discussion about the show’s creation and production in New York City. ”
So, if any of you live in Manhattan or in NY — you might want to try and check this out! A Q&A session is always fun and seeing the cast and creators in person is a rare opportunity.
Passes granting admission to Premiere Week events are available on the Festival Web site. To order, visit nytvf.com and click on “Box Office.” Single tickets to some events will be made available at a later date. The 2008 NYTVF opens on Friday, September 12th and runs through Wednesday, September 17th.
The passes are a little pricey, and I think you’d have to get the Festival or Premium Passes to grant admission. Call or email the festival for more details.
