Sat., July 9: The 2nd Annual Kickstarter Film Festival; This year’s festival will feature 100 minutes of footage from 16 different projects. The clips will range anywhere from two to ten minutes in length, and will cover every conceivable visual form: feature films, documentaries, shorts, project videos, found footage, art films, animation, and music videos.

The lineup includes:

The premiere of Canyon Candy, the ten-minute short film from the band Javelin

A very, very special screening of an extended clip from Girl Walk that you won’t want to miss

Selections from Sara Rara of Lucky Dragons’ art film A Ray Array

Three of the best Kickstarter project videos… of all time

An extended clip from The Twelve O’Clock Boyz, a documentary on Baltimore’s outlaw dirt bike culture

A surreal selection from the found Super-8 archive of Our Nixon

And of course many, many more. Check out their Film Festival Curated Page for the full lineup.

The evening will also feature a host of amazing vendors and activities. There will be tasty snacks and other goodies from two amazing Kickstarter-funded eateries with specially crafted menu items: Brooklyn’s Colonie and Soho’s What Happens When. And City ‘Lasses Original Blackstrap Molasses drinks will also be on hand, along with a couple others.

They’ll also have innovative and exciting Kickstarter projects in residence. Oneironautics will introduce lucid dreaming and provide one-on-one consultations on how to effectively journey through one’s dreams The Magnolia Photo Booth Company will be on hand to snap pictures of guests with their earth- and travel-friendly photo booth Trade School will offer a belt-making class.
