Greenpoint Film Festival - Documentary Newtown

The 2nd Annual Greenpoint Film Festival begins this Thursday September 20, 2012 (186 Huron St) with a 6pm Opening Reception, a 7pm screening of Judy Lieff’s Deaf Jam, a look into the world of American Sign Language (ASL) Slam Poetry, followed by a Q&A with the director and an after party.

Screening continues Friday through Sunday at two locations: 186 Huron St & 329 Greenpoint Ave.

GFF Tickets prices range from $7 (single program) – $50 (All Festival Pass)

Aside from a full program, there is a Community Program on Saturday at 12pm that features The Domino Effect, a politically charged investigative documentary about the controversial plan to transform the Domino Sugar factory that includes conversations with longtime residents to reveal the impact gentrification has had on the community of North Brooklyn.

More screenings that hit home during the Environmental Program on Saturday at 2pm (329 Greenpoint Ave) include Leitner’s Newtown Creek Digester Eggs: The Art of Human Waste, followed by Newtown, in which director Choi exposes the history and realities behind the Greenpoint Oil Spill.

Which screenings will you be attending during the Greenpoint Film Festival?
