This Friday - Bushwick Film Fest Opens Summer Screening Series @ Brooklyn Fire Proof!
BUSHWICK FILM FESTIVAL OPENS SUMMER SCREENING SERIES AT BROOKLYN FIRE PROOF ON FRIDAY, JULY 8TH
On Friday, July 8th from 8:00pm - 10:00pm, The Bushwick Film Festival (BFF) will be screening a collection of films titled, “The Best of The Bushwick Film Festival,” as a part of the Brooklyn Fire Proof Summer Screening Series. To get Bushwick excited for the festival's 9th Edition, scheduled from Sept 29 – Oct 2nd, BFF will be showcasing several of its award-winning shorts, including, The Life And Death Of Tommy Chaos And Stacey Danger, directed by Michael Litwak, as well as its 2015 Winning Film, WALLABOUT, by director Eric McGinty. Audiences can expect a night of both daring and entertaining independent films that capture the human spirit and experience in unique ways. This screening is FREE and to sign up to attend please visit our Facebook event's page here.
WALLABOUT is an urban meditation on artistic perseverance and the eternal search for family. The film follows Alex, an overeducated and underemployed former filmmaker muse, as she moves back to New York after living in Europe for 10 years. Upon her return, Alex is kicked out of her apartment, fired, and rejected by those around her. Determined to help her ailing father, she picks up a shady-part time job, where she meets Frank, an enigmatic film producer whose checkered past eventually catches up with the couple. WALLABOUT won Best Picture at the 2015 Bushwick Film Festival and was highlighted on Fox News.
The Life And Death Of Tommy Chaos And Stacey Danger tells the tale of a romantic adventure. Think Blue Valentine meets Jurassic Park. Dinosaurs have invaded Earth but neither Tommy nor Stacey care anymore, now that they've found each other. They escape the war, but whether they dive to the bottom of the ocean or fly to the depths of Outer Space, conflict always seems to find a way into their lives.
“The Best of The Bushwick Film Festival” screening is a part of Brooklyn Fire Proof’s free outdoor summer screening series. Brooklyn Fire Proof is a creative complex of movie studios, artists' workspaces, and galleries located in Bushwick. The summer screening series, eight nights in total, will be curated and hosted by noted filmmakers, artists, and programmers including screenings curated by Marcel Dzama, Nick Zedd, PFFR and more.
The screenings will take place every Friday at sundown, beginning July 8 and continuing through August 26. These films and shorts will be shown in Brooklyn Fire Proof’s 3,200 square foot outdoor courtyard adjacent to neighboring restaurant and bar, Terra Firma. Terra Firma Restaurant, BFP partners, will be serving their full food menu before, during and after the screenings, and drinks will be available from their bar.
Brooklyn Fire Proof has been our festival sponsor for over three years and BFF is very excited to work with BFP and their partners to host such an incredible summer event for Bushwick!
