The Red Hook Film Festival, in its fifth year, is this weekend at BWAC in Red Hook, Brooklyn.  I served as the programming advisor this year and I’m very excited about our lineup.

We will be screening a great selection of short films from Brooklyn and beyond. As usual, all of our screenings are free, and we will have free popcorn and free Steve’s Key Lime Pies, and our Festival Party will be on Saturday evening at 6pm at historic Sunny’s Bar (253 Conover Street, right near BWAC).

Our final schedule of films (3 programs Saturday afternoon and 2 programs Sunday afternoon) is online at our website:

Our 5th annual festival includes stories from Brooklyn and beyond, with films about barges, bike races, artists and students in Red Hook, kite battles in Dyker Park, doomsayers in Bushwick, street protests in Bed-Stuy, Christmas trees on the Newtown Creek, canoeing on the Gowanus Canal, Urban Explorers climbing the Williamsburg Bridge, the Wall Street occupation and the mysterious Masstransiscope underneath Downtown Brooklyn. We will be presenting films from the Brooklyn Filmmakers Collective, the Meerkat Media Collective, Urban Omnibus,, Dance Theatre Etc, and the NYC Transit Museum.
