The folks at Pangea Restaurant & Bar, 178 Second Ave. near East 11th Street, passed along word about The East Village Film Series:
The Series was founded to showcase award-winning works from local and international filmmakers, and to celebrate the silver screen. Aiming to take cinema off the computer, and back on the big screen, the EVSF is dedicated to sharing important, entertaining, and challenging works of art with New York City.
The Film Series is a perfect opportunity for filmmakers to meet meet and mix, for old friends to get together and new friends to be made. Designed for everyone from cinephiles and to the cine-curious, the Series blends fine art and incredible stories, with a fantastic, comfortable environment, for a great evening of work by award-winning New York filmmakers. An event by a community, for a community.
NYC-based director Matt K. Firpo is the series founder.
The series kicks off Thursday night with A Night of Short Films... showcasing "Nomadique." Read more about that here.
The films start at 8 p.m. The filmmakers are expected to be around afterward to discuss their work and what not.
