This year, we're once again copresenting a series of special presentations at Williamsburg's indieScreen, with our partners IFC, BAM, Rooftop Films, Animation Block Party, NewFest, FilmBuff, indieWIRE and IFP. We're also pleased to present a half-dozen features and many shorts at the first annual DIY Film Festival, at UnionDocs. Our complete schedule, with showtimes, synopses, links, and ticketing, can now be found here.
We can't really believe the Northside Festival is next week! Well, that's not true -- it's kind of all we're thinking about here at the L Magazine. However, if next week's festival is news to you, you still have a chance to check out Northside thanks to our friends at Distro.fm.
If you go to their ^northside^ network, you can listen to over 100 songs from artists playing the festival. If you like what you hear (and we'd like to think that you would) then subscribe to the network, and "Like" Distro.fm on Facebook and you'll be entered for two badges to the Northside Festival!
So, pop in those headphones and enter to win. And hopefully we'll see you at the Festival!
