I hate to imply that there’s any silver lining to this pandemic, but it is kind of cool that a lot of location-specific events are now being made universally (more or less) available by going virtual. One such example is the Bushwick Film Festival, which is available to stream online from 8pm ET today (the 21st) until Sunday, October 25th. The program is set to include over a hundred independent films hailing from thirty different countries, and will feature a solid mix of social/political, LGBTQ and BIPOC films, as well as NYC-based stories.
Film bundles have been made available to showcase the specific categories (ex: BIPOC directors, womxn directors, LGBTQIA films, features, shorts, etc.), and those are available for $15-$100 each. If you’re more in the mood for an a la carte vibe, individual films can be rented starting at $7. Just want to check out everything? You can rent the whole lot for $150.
