Greenpoint Film Festival heads to the drive-in for its 9th edition

Film fests are finding various ways to continue.

The coronavirus has forced festivals of all types to find new ways to deliver the festival experience to their audiences. The most popular way has been to go virtual in some fashion. Obviously, there are pros and cons to going this direction, but it seems to be the best idea based on today’s technology. For film fests, another solution has arrived thanks to the resurgence of the drive-in theater.

The Greenpoint Film Festival started in 2011. The fest is an opportunity for smaller filmmakers to have their voices heard. It also spotlights the Greenpoint neighborhood in North Brooklyn. The ninth annual Greenpoint Film Festival will go to a drive-in format. The eight day event will showcase thirty-five films. For local residents that do not have their own cars, stationary cars will be at the event.

“At a time when people are eager to connect and convene again after months-long social distancing, we’re excited to bring filmmakers and film lovers in Brooklyn together to showcase and celebrate their work in a safe environment and create a safe platform of opportunities. Despite the circumstances this year has brought us to and against all odds, we are ever so grateful we can still rejoice in the act of storytelling for it is stories that shine the path to hope. ” Anthony Argento and Ricardo Vilar, Greenpoint Film Festival organizers stated in a message.
