Head over to Brooklyn Fire Proof in Bushwick this weekend (September 24 – 26) for the 4th annual Bushwick Film Festival. There will be music, art shows, and films of both the feature-length and short variety.
From the press release:
From September 24th-26th the festival will screen 5 feature films by notable directors Steven Garbas, Giorgio Arcelli, Dan Keezer, Andrew Shirley, and Shaun Jefford. Also, the program for shorts will showcase documentaries and comedies by 20 filmmakers, including works by Brooklyn based collective The Film Shop and Untucked Films. With a Woody Allen inspired art show (I Forgot My Mantra) curated by Joel Morrison and music producer and mixer Jason Finkel on board as the festival’s musical curator, this year promises to be an all encompassing arts festival. We are integrating music and art to compliment films. My goal was to bring in exciting bands that resonate with the Brooklyn/Bushwick music scene”, says Jason Finkel. Bands include Fancy Colors, Hot Seconds, Weekends, Acrylics, Revival Times, Bear Ceuse and Chappo, whose song is featured by Apple in the new iPod Touch commercial. Musical performances will be followed by DJ sets by Chris Thomas and Alex Mejias (Left as Rain), PJ (PG-13), and Benny Snacks (jumping!boys fame). Another addition to the 2010 festival is interactive photography installation, The Self Portrait Project by Andy Lin.
