As we noted Tuesday, the folks at Pangea Restaurant & Bar, 178 Second Ave. near East 11th Street, are launching The East Village Film Series tonight at 8. The series kicks off with A Night of Short Films... showcasing "Nomadique." (Read more about that here.)
NYC-based director Matt K. Firpo is the series founder. He shares more about the vision with us:
"The East Village Film Series is dedicated to giving the community a place to mix and meet like-minded artists. Like the salons of old, the EVFS blends fine art and incredible stories, with a fantastic, comfortable environment, for a great evening of work by award winning New York filmmakers. I think in an age, where more than ever, we as an audience watch our content on the small screen, on computers in the comfort of our own home, we wanted to give people an excuse to come out and share cinema with others. We think there is nothing like the electricity, the buzz, of watching film with a great audience."
