Who says you have to score a $5,000 VIP pass or wait hours in “rush” lines to get the full film festival experience? At these two mini fests, you’ll get the indie flicks and the Q&As with local filmmakers without having to fly to freezing-ass Park City, Utah, and crash on someone’s floor for a week.
Make It Short
April 4, 7:30pm, Guadalupe Inn, 1 Knickerbocker Ave., East Williamsburg; tickets $10 with a $15 food minimum.
If you missed these shorts when they screened at the Bushwick Film Festival, catch them at East Williamsburg’s newish Mexican restaurant/venue Guadalupe Inn and then stick around for a Q&A with filmmakers like Benjamin Shweky, Catherine Fordham, Will Mayo, Dionna McMillan, Michael Litwak, and others. The folks at BFF promise the flicks will be “quirky, sweet, humorous, and sometimes flat-out weird.” Bushwick only has one dine-in movie theater (we’re looking at you, Syndicate), so take advantage of this makeshift one while it lasts.
April 8, noon, at The Standard, High Line, 848 Washington St., Meatpacking District; tickets $7.
