Nightcap 5/31/14- NYAFF, Japan Cuts on Monday, Brooklyn FF is happening now, a give to The Rectory reminder and links
Things are starting to heat up with festivals and our regular Sunday slot is being taken by an over view of the Italian Open Roads series,. There is so much in motion that I just want to leave you with a couple of quick notes before the usual onslaught of links.
The films and schedule for the New York Asian Film Festival are up. You can find the information here. Tons of good stuff to be found.
Looking at the schedule I’m not sure how complete our coverage is going to be. The trouble is the multiple locations and summer vacations means some things are not going to get covered. I don’t know what is going to be lost- hopefully not much. I’ll let you know what we’ll be doing once we all hunker down and hash it out
However if you’re in New York at the end and the beginning of July you should make an effort to go see something.
