The seasonal evolution toward baggy layers is upon us, evident in the NYC street-style snaps for the 13th edition of Fashion Sundae, courtesy of @WatchingNewYork. Before you know it summer will be a distant memory and we will all be wrapped like fashionabl00e0 p0otato sacks to make the blustery commute more bearable. Here are some of the looks spotted last week on the Bedford Avenue walkway for your Monday morning style inspiration: Continue reading

New York City’s biggest horror film festival, FEARnyc, will present its 2019 festival from October 24 – 31, at Greenpoint’s Film Noir Cinema (122 Meserole Ave.) and The Green Room 42 at The Yotel in Manhattan.

More than 60 films and events are featured from world premieres to retrospectives and reimaginings, panel discussions, experiential events, and an award ceremony. Tickets are now available at FEARnyc.com.
Called “a huge, authoritative horror film festival” by Time Out New York film editor Joshua Rothkopfand “the best thing happening in the entire country this October” by Dread Central, FEARnyc was founded in 2016 by John Capo out of his lifelong love of horror movies.
“Our theme this year is Real/Surreal,” said John Capo, founder and festival director of FEARnyc. “From the morning commute to the evening news, New Yorkers are barraged by moments that are relentlessly real and surreal, often simultaneously.”
“Our selections this year, which deal with everything from obsessive Instagram culture, conversion therapy, and a school shooting to severalGrindr-gone-wrong tales, demonstrate that horror filmmakers are moving away from traditional let’s-kill-some-pretty-women tropes and focusing instead on the real life horrors that affect so many of us. In that sense, this year’s selections represent the maturity of horror filmmaking in 2019. I’m also excited to be spotlighting underrepresented groups in horror like the Native American, Latinx, and Queer communities and could not be more proud to present our annual Legacy Honor to iconic producer Debra Hill and our inaugural Trailblazer Award to the team behind Horror Noire: A History of Black Horror.”
The FEARnyc Award Ceremony, which will take place at The Green Room 42 at The Yotel, will include the presentation of this year’s Juried Awards as well as the FEARnyc Honors.
The FEARnyc Legacy Honor will be posthumously presented to Debra Hill, writer/producer/director whose credits include the original Halloween, Halloween II, Escape from New York, Clue, and The Fog. Featuring tributes by Paul Reubensand Hill’s producing partners, with Ms. Hill’s brother, Bob Hill, accepting the honor on her behalf, Ms. Hill will be recognized not only for her filmmaking but for her groundbreaking commitment to advancing the visibility and employment of women in film. Ms. Hill is only the third recipient of the Legacy Honor. Past recipients include Wes Cravenand George A. Romero.
Greenpointers is a sponsor of FearNYC.
Mothership will host its final outdoor salon-style art gathering of the year tonight in Greenpoint with a full slate of performances and activities. The monthly gatherings are for “artist friends and colleagues and other arts appreciators” and are open to the public.
