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
I went to my first Tribeca Film Festival this year and I must say it was overwhelming and exciting at the same time. I did not get see much of the festival due to previous arrangements and the badge that was given to me. I did manage to do the best I could and you will see it was a great time. First off The Tribeca 360 where films are in 360 format and seen through VR lens aka Virtual Reality. The films were so well written sometimes the visuals distracts you from the story.
While at Tribeca I have been getting links to most of the films being featured at the festival. I will start with the one I feel have the potential of being big or at least a huge push to get into theaters. Lil' Buck: Real Swan is about the Memphis dancer named Lil' Buck who burst on the scene a few years back thanks to a viral video from Spike Jonze. He brought jookin' (a local dance) to the mainstream and is one of its pioneers. The movie chronicles his beginnings as a kid
I been touch and go with keeping up with the Tribeca Film Festival lately. I will be posting some of the reviews in later posts especially of Lil' Buck, his documentary is completely mind blowing. Day 3 or Day 7 for me was very compacted. Between the Hub and traveling to the red carpets is a bit of a task but willing to keep the energy going. I witnessed another Cinema 360 theme this time it was Change is gonna come where people who made changes in society whether through rac
Here I am live from the 2019 Tribeca Film Festival for the first time ever and I will do what I can to continue coming here. I missed the first couple of days due to previous engagements. I made sure I was able to enjoy one full day which was Friday. I got to the Tribeca Hub and descending into the Tribeca360 Cinema where VR films are showcased based on theme. I was able to get the Go Team! theme which consist of 4 short films where teamwork(or lack of) was the premise. The s
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
Out in front of the SVA Theatre on Chelsea waiting for the stars to arrive for the world premiere of Starz Presents NUDE. I was outside by the red carpet waiting for the line to die down so I can straight walk in. Once that settled I got inside the theater and waiting for the trailers to start. The film started and the first image you see is of course a naked woman. The documentary which chronicles the making of the Nu Muse calendar and the people behind it. From the beginnin
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.
