The Inwood Film Festival is back for its fifth year.
The annual film event celebrating local stories and talent is returning to the Campbell Sports Center (Broadway and 218th St) from March 13 through 15.
Organized by neighborhood nonprofit Inwood Art Works, the weekend-long fest features a 25-movie lineup that includes a variety of short shorts, long shorts, student films (who's ready for "Kimchee Taco"?) and feature films. Also in the mix: three seminars taught by film industry veterans.
“This festival truly embodies Inwood Art Works vision to foster a vibrant multicultural community nourished by local connectivity," said Aaron Simms, Inwood Art Works’ Founder and Executive Producer, in a statement.
Long shorts, which dominate the event, have been grouped into categories like documentary portraits, health & wellness, mystery/crime (Uptown: Criminal Intent), and comedy (Now, That's Comedy!).
Seminars include Sound Design for Documentary Filmmaking, Filmmaking A to Z, and Digital Animation for Kids.
Attendees can buy a festival pass ($50) or single tickets ($15). See the full lineup here.
