#ICYMI - We relaunched our blog this month!

We are currently searching for volunteer writers/content creators who are passionate about the art of storytelling. We welcome any style— the inquisitive, the experimental, and everything in between. Perhaps there are pressing questions you want to explore, cultural conversations you’d like to spark, or movie-going experiences you’d like to share about. This space is meant to provide you with the visibility, inclusivity, and the agency to examine the stories that excite you, the artists that bring them to life, and the ecosystems that work to get them in front of audiences.

Q&A with Filmmaker @tess__harrison

“I think I am terrified of losing someone - so finding a way to visualize that space in between life and #death is comforting to me,” says Bushwick Film Festival alumna Tess Harrison about her upcoming film, The Light Upstate, which explores #grief and its myriad of complexities. Harrison is a #filmmaker and #actor whose momentum is on the rise. Her work in short narrative film and music videos shows her capacity to tell visually and narratively exciting stories in just a few short minutes.

Soon we’ll have the opportunity to see what Harrison can do with the feature-length format in her directorial debut, The Light Upstate, an adaptation of her 2018 short Take Me Out with the Stars, an official selection of the 11th Annual Bushwick Film Festival.

Film Review by by Aubrey Benmark (@zodiacguru17)

Read and Listen on the Bushwick Film Festival's blog! *Linked in bio*

The HBO documentary Tina delves into the personal life and career of rock icon Tina Turner. Utilizing never-before-released sound recordings and archival footage, the film exposes how media coverage of her abusive first marriage to Ike Turner furthered her traumatization, but never overcast Tina’s phenomenal talent.
