With cameras flashing and the red carpet greeting the stars, the film festival's fete will rival the glitzy Academy Awards presentation at Hollywood's Dorothy Chandler Pavillion. Tickets for the Oscar party are $20 and may be purchased from 9:30 a.m. to 5:30 p.m,, at the film society office across from Radio Shack in the Rehoboth Mall. Admission to the party includes hors d' oevres; there will be a cash bar. Proceeds directly benefit the film society's events, including the upcoming film festival, set for Nov. 8-12. Tickets may also be purchased at the door, but orga- nizers urge Oscar partygoers to make their plans ahead of time. "We're urging people not to wait until the last minute," said Jill Roberts, public relations chair for the film society. "We anticipate that this will be the most attended Oscar party yet." Local businesses are getting on board with the program. More than 80 merchants have donated gifts and services for the silent auction at the Oscar party. Items that will be up for grabs include mas- sage therapy, fitness memberships, restaurant gift certificates, gift baskets, video rentals and jewelry. Billed as "creative Hollywood attire," the sky is the limit for the Oscar party's dress code. "The real- ly great thing about this party is that it's a great opportunity to dress up and pull that floor-length gown and tuxedo out of the closet and have fun with it." While glitz and glamour are not requirements for admission, an Oscar party preshow from 6-8 p.m. will feature fashion commentary by E! network per- sonality Joan Rivers on two big-screen televisions at Dogfish Head. Best-dressed guests can compete for prizes in Rehoboth's own Golden Hanger competi- tion and film buffs a Pick the Oscar Winners contest.
