The Story

Family-Party-Film-Poster

High school senior, Nick gets forced by his parents to attend a boring family party instead of letting him to go a local summer concert with his baseball buddies. He meets a group of teens—including a girl named Arti—who are all stuck at the party too.

They soon realize they all have tickets to the same local concert and hash out a plan to sneak out. Their scheme falls apart when they’re met with another jealous childhood friend, a missing diamond necklace and a small religious ceremony put on by the adults.

Can they find a way out or is this family party the end of Nick’s night?

About The Film

Director Pari Mathur completed the script to Family Party in 2009 with the goal to make a fun, family film while changing perceptions of Indian-Americans in the media. After several years of development, principal photography started in August 2013 all around the San Francisco Bay Area—primarily in Oakland and San Jose, California.

Family Party premiered at the New York Indian Film Festival in 2015. The film was released on October 2015 on iTunes, Amazon, Google Play, and Vudu. It was acquired by Netflix and became available to stream worldwide in all English-speaking territories in early 2016.
