Spotted in Gowanus: Summer 2014 Outdoor Film Series

The Old American Can Factory (232 Third Street at Third Avenue in Gowanus)  is a 130,000 square foot manufacturing and arts complex at the foot of the Gowanus Canal. They have a spacious rooftop venue where they exhibit underground and independent films from around the world.

The films they screen range from comedies, dramas, multimedia projects and pieces that address global and social issues. They currently have seven grants available for filmmakers in the form of cash, equipment and services. You can support them by becoming a member through this link.

Rooftop Films is a New York based non-profit organization whose mission is to bring the arts to life by engaging local community members, screening films in accessible outdoor spaces, coordinating with youth and making media equipment affordable for artists and filmmakers.

About Maya

I like words like "labyrinthian," "kerfuffle," and "serendipitous" because they're mellifluous. I love poetry, pumpkin ales, sangria, long summer days, Fall foliage, going out of my way to step on crunchy leaves in October, live music, Jazz, Salsa dancing, theater, film (foreign and indie), the arts (myriad varieties), dance (in theory and practice) and any place where I can sit outdoors and take it all in.
