About this project
We’re thrilled to announce that the Second Annual Kickstarter Film Festival will be held the evening of Saturday, July 9th in Brooklyn, New York, on the roof of the Old American Can Factory. We hope that you can join us!
The festival will feature 100 minutes of footage from 16 projects. The clips will range anywhere from two to ten minutes in length, and will include feature films, documentaries, shorts, project videos, animation, video art, and music videos.
There will be tasty snacks and other goodies from two amazing Kickstarter-funded eateries (Brooklyn’s Colonie and Soho’s What Happens When), beverages from City ‘Lasses, and ice cream from Phinizy & Phebe. There will also be activities from Kickstarter creators, including lucid dreaming lessons from Oneironautics, pics with the Magnolia Photo Booth, and animated GIFs turned into physical zoetropes.
Seating for the festival is divided into two sections: rooftop and courtyard. Both are great! The venue features two screens, one for each section. The rooftop section is located on top of the Old American Can Factory and the courtyard section is just beneath it. The afterparty will be held in the courtyard.
Doors will open at 7pm. Films will begin promptly at 9pm.
Jesse Treece is a collage artist living in Seattle, Wa. whose work screams of the simple, yet ever complex, interpretations of both the mundane and whimsical facets of life. He’s somehow managed to mix both the regular and absurd, beautiful and disturbing and put them into images that you find you could get lost in for hours. He is currently involved in a collaborative collage book project (www.icecreamkingdoms.tumblr.com) that is traveling from mailbox to mailbox around the globe.
