Mill Valley Film Festival Opening Night (PHOTOS)

On Thursday evening, filmmakers and film-lovers gathered at Outdoor Art Club to celebrate the Opening Night of the 34th annual Mill Valley Film Festival.

Glenn Close wore a chic black sequined jacket as she chatted with Robin Williams and Mort Sahl before the screening of her new film Albert Nobbs -- a film she co-wrote and starred in.

Meanwhile, brothers Mark and Jay Duplass sat down to talk about their new film, Jeff, Who Lives At Home, starring Jason Segel and Ed Helms.
