Film Screening: New York Non-Fiction (Short Films)

June 30, 2018, 7:45pm11:00pm

In 1886, The New York Times reported that “It is the ambition of the New Yorker to live upon Fifth Avenue, to take his airings in the [Central] Park, and to sleep with his fathers in Green-Wood.” On this night, among the fathers and mothers resting in Green-Wood, we celebrate New Yorkers, all New Yorkers. From the neighborhood veterans, creepy craigslist roommates, and preachers on the corner, to the weirdos wantonly disrupting traffic, the activists fighting gentrification, and the people who just gentrified your neighborhood, this is a night of stories about you and the other 8.5 million people who live in this city. Whether they are liberated by their creativity or imprisoned by government contractors, the protagonists of these short films are real and they are your neighbors. Come, grab a slice, and hang out with your city.

7:45 PM: Doors Open
8:30 PM: Live Music
9:00 PM: Films Begin
10:30 PM: After-Party Sponsored by Corona Extra, Ketel One Family Made Vodka and Fever-Tree
