It’s been a fantastic week for My Brooklyn. This past Friday we were featured on the NY Times Local and The Huffington Post – which has a string of 74 comments so far. Kelly was interviewed by a cool blog – Jeremiah’s Vanishing New York. To top it off we programmed and presented for an entire afternoon at the BMW Guggenheim Lab on Saturday.
But we still need your help on our Kickstarter campaign. We only have 19 days left to go and $5,000 left to raise. Please forward on info about our campaign and ask friends to give – even small amounts help. So talk us up on Facebook or your fave social networking site, email family and friends, etc.
At the Lab We showed clips from the unfinished film, inspired heated yet productive discussions around gentrification, affordable housing, public support for luxury high rises and private developments with activists from FUREE, nonprofit leaders, academics like Meredith Tenhoor and local artisans presenting and selling their work.
Next week we are throwing a fundraiser party – hosted by Filmwax – at the Fifth Estate bar in Park Slope. The event goes from 6 – 9. Come meet the filmmakers and subjects. We’ll show clips, talk, drink, and hang out.
