The inspiration for this year’s film festival, our first, came out of last September’s popular 9-day
neighborhood-wide arts festival, 'Art Slope 2016,' which featured the work of over 150 artists
from across all disciplines, in over 50 venues, including 9 large installations in Prospect Park. Art
Slope 2016 attracted visitors from all over the City and beyond for music, dance, theater, visual
art in all media, literary readings, and art panels (Please visit the following link for more
information:  http://www.artslope.nyc/2016/artists-1/).
One of Art Slope 2016’s most popular events was “Shorts in the Slope,” a 90 minute program
of 12 short films, many of which had been featured at prominent festivals, and which were
selected by filmmaker Bill Schaumberg. Shorts in the Slope was held at the new, state of the art
315-seat Marlene Clary Performance Space of the Berkeley Carroll School. For short biographies
