PARK CITY – The Hollywood Reporter celebrated the premiere of Listen Up Philip -- Alex Ross Perry's comedy starring Jason Schwartzman as a self-involved writer -- with an intimate party at Cisero's downstairs bar on Main Street on Monday night.

The cast of the film -- including Schwartzman, Elisabeth Moss, Jonathan Pryce, Krysten Ritter and Joséphine de La Baume -- arrived with Perry at the exclusive event directly after the premiere, still riding high from the warm reception they received at the Library Theatre in Park City.

"I've never had a premiere of a movie of mine with more than a dozen people before," said Perry, whose 2011 film The Color Wheel was nominated for an Indie Spirit Award. "I felt very confident with what we had with this film."

Perry, who posed for photos with his cast before snacking on vegan hors d'oeuvres at the event, which was sponsored by American Airlines, told THR he had been in Park City for four days, which allowed him to see several films -- including Happy Christmas, The Guest and Wetlands -- before embarking on his own press tour for Listen Up Philip.

Moss told THR that the premiere was the first time she'd seen the film, and that she was very happy with the audience's reaction.

"That's always a bit scary," she said. "It seemed like they liked it. They laughed a lot, which is awesome."

Moss, who said she's about halfway through filming the next season of Mad Men, was still glowing from her recent Golden Globe win for Top of the Lake. 

"I was so genuinely surprised," she said of her recent win.

She told THR that she was lucky that AMC's Mad Men was willing to give her a few days off to attend the festival, where she was promoting two films. Along with Listen Up Philip, Moss also starred in Charlie McDowell's directorial debut The One I Love opposite Sundance vet Mark Duplass.

"I just stand in one place and they switch movies around me," she joked.
