3 DAY CELEBRATION OF MUSIC, ART & FILM
Performances by Chappo, Fancy Colors, Hot Seconds, Weekends, Acrylics, and Revival Times
Brooklyn, NY (2010)—The Bushwick Film Festival returns for its fourth year on September 24th for an exciting three day event at Brooklyn Fire Proof in Bushwick, Brooklyn. 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, who recently screened a retrospective of their work at Anthology Archive.
With a Woody Allen inspired art show 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, and Chappo whose song is featured by Apple in the new iPod Touch commercial. Musical performances will be followed by DJ sets. Another addition to the 2010 festival is interactive photography installation, The Self Portrait Project by Andy Lin.
The Bushwick Film Festival, a 501(c)3 business partnership, was started in 2007. Over the course of 3 years the festival has screened films by 64 directors with the support of 15 sponsors including Pepsi, Sobe, Magic Hat, Stella, Original Sin and Uprinting. The festival celebrates the art of filmmaking, showcases unique and innovative films and provides filmmakers with the opportunity to market themselves to the public as well as the industry. The Message: making ideas real even if you have to stick it out and DO IT YOUR SELF!
