When tasked with creating and executing an intimate celebration in honor of HBO’s upcoming film, Bessie, Team Epiphany rose to the occasion with an invite-only dinner at the Sundance Film Festival.
Tastemakers, actors, and film executives all came together for #BessieSupper at Table One, where they were joined by dynamic filmmaker Dee Rees for an interactive cocktail hour adorned with 1920s-themed décor and handcrafted custom drinks.
Guests made their way to the dining room—in which every detail seemed to be reminiscent of the film’s scenes—for a four-course meal. Following an exclusive screening of a Bessie highlight reel, a candid “Inside the Actors Studio”-type conversation ensued.
Over 45 guests enjoyed the #BessieSupper activation, and left with a gift bag including a camera, an HBO-branded silver flask in a velvet pouch, and an iPod shuffle preloaded with three Bessie Smith songs. Guests celebrated the film and shared their experience to garner over 590,000 social media impressions.
