The 3rd Annual Red Hook International Film and Video Festival is taking place this weekend at BWAC's space (499 Van Brunt St.)
This year's festival includes a wide variety of films and videos, many with Brooklyn or NYC themes. Of particular local interest is the first film on 10/3 about Bob Guskind, blogger of Gowanus Lounge fame who passed away last Spring. That film is followed by a Gowanus documentary called "Lavendar Lake."
Another exciting part of the festival is a party at Sunny's at 6pm on 10/3, which features food from local favorites Defonte's, Anselmos, and Steve's Key Lime Pie.
Check out the full schedule of films and activities here. There are definitely plenty of selections that look worthwhile.
