The Brooklyn Film Festival starts next Friday and runs until the 12th. Its an interesting mix of features and shorts. I've just purchased tickets and I'm planning on attending two series of shorts (June 6th) and three features (June 9th).
I'll report in once I go.
Sadly it appears that I won't be able to attend the slightly counter programmed Gold Coast Film Festival. Despite being closer to my home and the scheduling of some great looking films I have familial obligations that conflict just enough as to make my attendance very unlikely
