Hey Everyone!
As you may have noticed, I haven't been posting as frequently these past two weeks. That's because we are doing so many great things in the department. Classes are involved with the NY Pops and the Honey Bee Conservancy. We had the Arri workshop last Thursday. A group of students were working with the Tribeca Film Festival, which just wrapped this past weekend. Two new film opportunities have been posted in the Film Festivals and Competitions section: MoFilm and Latin Mixx Festival. (Thanks to Jen and Oswaldo for those!)
Keep checking for updates. In the mean time, please check out the two posts below. There are two great film screenings happening; one on Thursday and another over four days, beginning tonight.
Cheers, Eve.

C/16 Screening Event

C/16 is a modern take on silent film - the program combines rare, vintage shorts shot on 16 MM film, and made "silent" as a live score is played by an up and coming musical artist or band...All the music is completely original, performed specifically for the film program.

This Thursday is a particularly spectacular show. The film will be projected outside on the archway of the DUMBO overpass and features performance by MotMot for Smack Mellon's First Thursday concert series.

Doors 7:00pm Show: 8:00pm Location: Archway under the Manhattan Bridge, located at Pearl and Water Street in Dumbo
