By Jennifer Lee The first weekend of every international film festival tends to be a gap in the space-time continuum. Sometime around 5 o’clock on Friday evening, Father Time heads to his chamber with Ambien in hand and a hot cup of Valerian tea cooling on his bedside table, rendering sleep and fatigue more novelty than necessity until he awakens in the new week. Though the many hours of fun to be filled seem endless thanks to the festival’s 4 a.m. extended license, there is the matter of traffic, and lest we not forget the soaring heels hindering a girl’s valiant party hopping efforts.  And so, as circumstance demands it, an “it” spot must be anointed each festival; the final stop in the screening, premiere party, late night party sequence, where Hollywood’s night owls are invited to expel their energy.
