Win a Prize at the Vine Film Festival or Watch the Stone Roses on the Big Screen


A six-second “film” isn’t going to stand up against classics like Goodfellas or Vertigo, but with the ADD generation upon us, maybe this is the future of film? The Vine Film Festival is awarding prizes for the best Vine movies this Saturday at Bushwick’s Bat Haus coworking space. To enter your film use the hashtag #tinylittlevideos on Vine and look for your work at the festival. Booze and prizes — awarded in all genres, so be creative — will be provided by the event’s sponsors: The Bronx Brewery, Kave Café, Northeast Kingdom and Mile’s Wine Bar. And there’s an after-party at The Rookery.

Catch these six-second masterpieces and other films about drugs, music and adoption we’re Reel Psyched about.

Get Hot with Burning Man, The Montagues and Capulets, and Debbie Harry


Every year thousands of people swarm the sweltering deserts of Nevada to indulge in hippiesque camaraderie, the building and destruction of a short-lived city, partying and the literal burning and exploding of things. While we don’t know what the ratio of drug overdoses is, compared to the Gathering of the Juggalos, we do know that Burning Man attendees tend to have their own costumes, aka “playa style,” that don’t involve face paint (well, not clown face paint anyway).

Roll Up For the ‘Magical Mystery Tour,’ Get ‘Dazed and Confused’

These upcoming screenings, q&as, and open cereal bars have us Reel Psyched.

We know the film has no direct connection to the Apple headquarters (other then it being the Beatles), but maybe you wanted an excuse to drink $6 martinis, indulge in a $5 all-you-can-eat BBQ and watch a free Beatles movie at 11 p.m. on a Monday. Now you have one.
