Greetings Meganda Films friends, family and supporters! We were all set to share the latest Writers Words today, but then we received some amazing news. Today’s Worthy Wednesday is a WORTHY announcement, our film AT THIS TABLE is an Official Selection for this years Crown Heights Film Festival.
The Crown Heights Film Festival (CHFF) is a collaboration between photographer & cameraman, Pedro Martí and artist & curator, Erin Gleason. The festival was founded in 2009 with the aim of creating a social forum centred on showcasing a curated selection of exceptional local and international films to visitors, long time residents and newcomers in Crown Heights – a rapidly changing neighborhood navigating a number of socio-economic issues including racial and cultural integration, local business growth, and police presence under “zero tolerance” directives. CHFF believes the community at large, through the medium of film, benefits from a festival that reflects the diversity Crown Heights embodies.
Each night of the festival is a unique journey through a variety of film genres including feature length and short narratives, documentaries, animations and cross-disciplinary films. The Sunday Matinee features films made by or for children. CHFF will present a “Best of Festival” award selected from all of the films showcased, as well as “Festival Favorite” awards for each category. CHFF is hosted by FiveMyles, located in Crown Heights, Brooklyn.
AT THIS TABLE was such a learning process for myself and for our first time director April Wilkner. We wanted to find a way to capture the magic of letting actors play; where the text comes to life and we get to riff with off the page with improv and create without the script holding us back. We are extremely excited to be selected, and hope all our friends and supports can make it out to the screening.
