8th Annual Bushwick Film Festival Opens TONIGHT

The 8th Annual Bushwick Film Festival kicks off tonight at 6:30pm with a red carpet reception at LightSpace Studios. The evening will be catered by our sponsor Amaranto Mexican Restaurant and drinks provided by Smuttynose Brewing Company and Bruce Cost Ginger Ale. Dress your best and pose for some memorable photos on the red carpet! Tickets are sold out for tonight's event but we have full weekend of screenings and panels to choose from on our website at www.bushwickfilmfestival.com. 

Following tonight's reception, will be the highly anticipated screening of Wallabout by Eric McGinty. Find out what happens when a single woman struggles to rebuild her life in Brooklyn after spending 10 years abroad as the unrecognized muse to a famous filmmaker. Wallabout is an intimate first-person account of an overeducated and underemployed outsider who navigates an often hypocritical and corrupt society. 

And of course after the show is the after party! Join The BFF, festival participants and guests as we celebrate the opening of our 8th Edition at Bushwick’s most luxurious venue, Lot 45 Bushwick! DJ all night and Open Bar from 10 – 11pm. This event is free for all guests that have purchased a ticket to any festival film, panel, workshop or event. $10 at the door for guests without festival ticket. 

See you at the fest!
