As usual, all of the screenings are free and open to the public,
with free popcorn and free Steve's Key Lime Pies
The Red Hook International Film and Video Festival, now in its 4th year, will once again give young filmmakers an opportunity to screen their work right here in Brooklyn. This year's schedule is filled with unique short films, with a special emphasis on Brooklyn filmmakers.
Included in the lineup is Christine Kelly's the charming hand drawn animé "Huck On The Gowanus", which I posted on PMFA back in the spring. (According to an email I received from the festival organizers, they first learned about the film on my website.)
Also part of the festival is the wonderful "Va Fa Napoli Hipster", directed byMatt Weckel and my friends over at Blue Barn Pictures. The narrative tells the story of "an elderly man (who) exacts his revenge on the hipsters that plague his beloved Brooklyn." I love the movie.
