Katie Holmes and Emilio Vitolo might have ended their romantic relationship, but they're evidently still on great terms. In an Instagram post Tuesday, Holmes congratulated Vitolo on the upcoming premiere of his short film Almost a Year at the 2021 Tribeca Film Festival. Holmes served as a producer on the film, which also stars Eve Lindley and Mitzi Akaha and was directed by Jamieson Baker.

"I am so excited for the start of the @tribecafilmfestival today!!!!! I am so honored to have been a part of the making of ALMOST A YEAR which is premiering at #Tribeca2021," Holmes wrote, alongside a series of stills and behind-the-scenes shots from the film. "Congratulations to the very talented and amazing cast @eveclindley @emiliovitolo @lilmitz_ and director @jamiesonbaker." Vitolo responded in the comments, posting a string of heart-eyes emojis.

Holmes and Vitolo were first photographed together in September 2020, and quickly became close; the couple were regularly spotted out and about in New York City. But they separated earlier this year, with a spokesperson for Holmes telling Us Weekly that "the pair have parted ways amicably but remain friends."

"Their relationship fizzled. They figured out they’re better off as friends. There’s no drama that went down with the breakup and in fact, they’re still friends," an inside source told the magazine. "Katie and Emilio really enjoyed their time together—it just simply didn’t work out. She’s focusing on being a mom and her upcoming projects."
