The Bushwick Film Festival is back for its 12th orbit around the sun! From October 2-6, the festival will be exploring and celebrating stories through ‘space’ and ‘time’, literally and metaphorically. 

This opening night red carpet is going to be LIT! Followed by a screening of the short film DISPEL directed by Kylie Eaton and Feature Film THE GHOST WHO WALKS directed by Cody Stokes both films exploring the vast, sometimes endless space between individuals and the ones they love most.  

THE GHOST WHO WALKS is a crime thriller about an imprisoned man who rats out his former boss for one last chance to reunite his family and become the father he never was. It’s a “Carlito’s Way” meets “It’s a Wonderful Life”. At the heart of it all, it is a story about fatherhood and time lost. 

* Starring Garland Scott (The Infiltrators), Frank Mosley (Thunder Road, Upstream Color, Person to Person), Alexia Rasmussen (Proxy, The Missing Girl), Gil Darnell (MacGyver, Lethal Weapon, NCIS: New Orleans, Reign) 

DISPEL is a fantasy short film that tells the story of a mother’s addiction through the imaginative eyes of her 12 year old daughter.

*Starring Eris Baker (This Is Us),  Gina Torres  (Suits, West World, The Matrix). 



After the show, It’s the after party! Join us at Lot 45 for our opening night after party sponsored by Brugal 1888. Mingle with filmmakers and cast and enjoy a night of good music, specialty cocktails, and positive vibes. Feel free to dance until the Astronomical Twilight because it’s the kick-off to a 5-day celebration of Film, Food, Music, Innovation and ‘SPACE’! 

*Tickets will include access to the red carpet reception, the film screening, and the opening night party @ Lot45
