Kinetically Charged Red Carpet @ 2018 Nordic International Film Festival

One of the missions for the WORD, its editor and correspondents covering red carpets in the New York City metro area – such as, and definitely not limited to, Tribeca Film Festivals (TFF), New York Film Festivals NYFF), New York Asian Film Festival (NYAFF), DOC NYC – is to capture kinetically charged moments of the carefully crafted feeding frenzy of photojournalists trying to get their $$$ shots and broadcast reporters angling for their interviews as well as celebrities and PR reps and red carpet staff joining in the moshing and jostling for a grand moment of celebration.

The participation of patrons, supporters, groupies and aficionados who managed to get in to the fête should not be overlooked. The WORD is a nonprofit, so we aren’t here for the moola. We are here for the frenzy!
