PARK CITY, Utah, March 13, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- Embracing the success of being a top food and fete film festival destination for celebrities and filmmakers each year, Hollywood event producer A-List Communications brought its popular "Kia Telluride Supper Suite" pop-up back to Park City, Utah for the fifth consecutive year. The program ran from January 26th to 28th, 2019 featuring cuisine by Greene St. Kitchen, beverages by LIFEWTR, Tequila Comisario, Sensi Wines, Blue Moon Belgian White and Dragonfly Coffee Roasters with Collider and Los Angeles Confidential Magazine.
As it does each year, the Kia Telluride Supper Suite and its partners served as a top hospitality and fine food destination celebrating the top films and Hollywood A-list attending the film festival each year. The pop-up was located centrally on Main Street with a takeover of The Mustang restaurant.
Telluride summits Kia's SUV lineup with its first eight-passenger SUV that is several inches longer and wider than Kia's award-winning, seven-passenger Sorento midsize SUV and is scheduled to arrive in showrooms in early 2019. Kia presented the Telluride through a décor of video and still imagery within the bistro pop-up while also treating celebrities and VIP media with door-to-door chauffeur-driven car service.
Elevating the culinary hospitality experience indoors, Greene St. Kitchen of Las Vegas led by notable celebrity chef Lanny Chin along with acclaimed executive chef Joe Zanelli. The soon to open restaurant by Andy Masi's Clique Hospitality, is a dynamic, design-driven dining experience bringing gastronomic innovation to the newly renovated PALMS Casino Resort. Kia Telluride Supper Suite attendees experienced top of the line chef prepared dinners and catering by the coveted Vegas entity and hospitality brand.
Creative libations to set the party tone started with the ultra-premium and award-winning, Tequila Comisario, available in three expressions, including mixable Blanco, aged Reposado and Añejo. These small-batch craft tequilas, owned by Elite Beverage International, are double-distilled and cold-filtered and made from the finest hand-selected 100% Blue Weber Agave found in the highlands of Jalisco Mexico. Recent awards and ratings include the coveted 2018 Champions of the World Spirits Competition; a "98 points" rating as Best New Tequila; and "#1 Best Blanco Margarita" by Cigar & Spirits Magazine.
In addition, Elite Beverage International will also serve up their premium Sensi Wines. Guests were treated to the Sensi Chardonnay Toscana IGT and Dalcampo Chianti DOCG. Chianti Dalcampo scored 91 points at the Annuario dei migliori vini italiani 2016, a top record in the Chianti category. A series of fine Tuscan wines with excellent consistency and harmonious softness in taste.
In addition, Miller-Coors returned for its 4th year partnership and served its popular Belgian-style witbier, Blue Moon Belgian White, the perfect craft-brand for this culinary hospitality hub. Gourmet Coffee Brand, Dragon Fly Coffee Roasters also furnished a deluxe coffee bar day and night inclusive of a signature dessert blend.
Joining as the official water for the 2019 program was LIFEWTR, a featured sponsor of the annual Creative Coalition Spotlight Initiative Awards Gala benefit for funding for the Arts. LIFEWTR is committed to advancing creativity, starting where it all begins – arts education – and to that end has impacted more than 1 million students to date through arts education initiatives. LIFEWTR will continue this mission to support arts education programs in 2019, beginning with a mural project at a Florida City Elementary School in Miami, FL.
In addition to the evening film dinners and parties, the Kia Telluride Supper Suite also hosted the annual Collider Portrait and Media Studio during the daytime. Here, top filmmakers and actors stopped in during their press circuits to conduct live streaming interviews and to take cast portraits as exclusive content on the popular movie fan site, Collider.com, which garners over 11 million visitors and 45 million page views monthly.
