Brooklyn Arts Council's new film series Scene: Brooklyn is taking place at Galapagos Art Space next week. Details below:

Scene: Brooklyn celebrates the borough's thriving film community, and features a seminar for filmmakers, a panel discussion, and screenings. 19 films bring fantastical animations, thought provoking short films, and eye opening documentaries about local issues to the screen.

Scene: Brooklyn's spring program also includes, Living the Independent Dream, a panel discussion at Galapagos Art Space in DUMBO, Brooklyn that features some of the borough's most successful filmmakers, including Half Nelson's Ryan Fleck and Anna Boden, whose long-awaited new film Sugar premiered at Sundance recently, Oscar nominated director Tia Lessin, Cruz Angeles (Don't Let me Down), and Ramin Bahrani (Man Push Cart, Goodbye Solo).

The panel is moderated by Mark Rosenberg, founder and director of Brooklyn's own Rooftop Films. Scene: Brooklyn award-winners will be announced, with prizes including a cash award, Final Draft scriptwriting software, and travel on JetBlue Airways. This event requires an RSVP and is $5 at the door.
