Rooftop Films: Letters From The Other Side
I was going to do a full posting of all of July’s screenings for Rooftop Films (they have several every weekend), but I don’t have enough time to do that justice and to let you know about this very weekend’s lineup. So, here’s just this weekend’s screenings and I’ll get back and do the rest of the month (and give myself enough lead time):
Friday, July 7th, 8:30 p.m.:
Shorts collection: “The Rural Route Film Festival” featuring 19 shorts about life out in the country. Preceded by live music by Fat Worm of Error. Screening held on the lawn of Automotive High School at 50 Bedford Ave. b/w 12th and Lorimer in Williamsburg, Brooklyn.
Saturday, July 8th, 8:30 p.m.:
