Last post was about the Liberacion Film Festival now let's take it to Brooklyn for the Bushwick Film Festival. I got to Syndicated Bar Kitchen(one of the most underrated venues in Brooklyn) and caught the opening film segment which included documentary films like Not In My Neighborhood and The Infamous Future. Both documentaries have similar themes such as mistreatment of people of color, sudden change in environment and where to go to from there. The Infamous Future is a doc
Been a busy time lately so I decided to write multiple posts at one time. I nor the team haven't been posted once when we do it's magic. We got a chance to go to the opening day of the 3rd Annual Liberacion Film Festival at the Schomburg Center in Harlem, New York. The opening night film was Monsters and Men starring John David Washington and directed by Reinaldo Marcus Green. Before the film started we watched a short film called I, Marielle, Resist which documented the lif
My first time inside the Brooklyn Expo Center for this year's Five Point Fest and I must say it was long overdue. Even though it was my first time at the event but I felt like a veteran due to the knowledge of the event over the years. I walk around the tables and passed the vendors looking at the wonderful toys and artwork. As you entered you're greeted by a statute of a one eyed creature reminiscent of the Simpsons or Yo Gabba Gabba. Going past the general admission table y
Saturday Night and Day 4 of the Bushwick Film Festival was quite the treat. The short film festival titled Fear Of A Black Planet consist of several short films directing by people of color and featuring predominately minority casts. Sitting down in LightSpace Studios waiting for the crowd to enter and also to grab a drink. Waiting for the segment to start the first film finally appeared after all the advertisements and a black man appeared on the screen talking about his lov
Last week I had the pleasure to witness the final Heineken Green Room show in Brooklyn which featured the Chef himself, Raekwon. You already know the legacy this man so there is no need to dive into it but we can talk about his opening act: IDK from Maryland. I been listening to this kid for some time now(probably one of the few New Yorkers that listens to him) from his breakout mixtape "Subtrap" to his latest project #IWASVERYBAD which I consider one of the top ten of 2017.
On Thursday I made a trip to Brooklyn(Williamsburg to be exact) for finally witness a Fool's Good show. I always miss a chance to go to one due to unforeseen circumstances and ticket prices(laughs) In this case I finally got a chance to witness a showcase(for free!) that featured G Herbo as the headliner. The show was packed with youngins and some industry heads but to me the highlight was the venue: The Paper Box. The venue have a great backyard/outdoor garden view with the
Yesterday I was watching Veronica as part of this year's Brooklyn Horror Film Festival at Videology in Williamsburg Brooklyn. Veronica is a Mexican psychological thriller which is about two women(or one?) who are together in the forest learning about each other and their secrets gets the best of them. Without getting into detail about the film in which you got to see it to believe it. First and foremost, if you never been to Videology to watch a movie, I got to say it's quite
I get the opportunity to talk about this year's edition since I finally get the opportunity to cover it. I stumbled onto the Horror Film Festival a couple of years back while doing another one of my film festival runs. As usual I can't do it all alone so while doing one film festival meant the horror film festival got a backseat. The Brooklyn Horror Film Festival is a competitive festival meaning all films that is being screened will be up for a award throughout the festival.
I was at the Bell House for the Teaser Party for the 15th Annual New York Burlesque Festival. I was impressed by the performers and the host. The World Famous *BOB* hosted the festivities in her old stomping grounds. It was refreshing to see her in person giving quick quibs and snappy comments. I never been to the festival and this was a treat seeing some of the performers you follow on Instagram or Twitter in person performing what they do best. The event was a celebration o
This time Maine chimes in about her input for Nefertitty.... How much fun was it to shoot the episodes? Maine: Oh. Em. GEE!!! So much fun! Is Nefertitty your favorite character to do? Maine: Absolutely by far Nefertitty is my favorite character to play. I was obsessed with action characters and superheroes as a kid. Now I get to play one! How much input did you have with the script? Maine: Lola Rocknrolla is a genius and a hilarious riot! We are very in sync creative
