The Park Slope Civic Council is pleased to announce the upcoming Art Slope '19 - Shorts in the Slope film festival - to be held again at the Berkeley Carroll School's State of the Art Performance Space on April 6 and 7th.

Come join us for two days of incredible short films from Brooklyn and around the world - in four separate screenings. This year we're also pleased to hold our inaugural youth film festival - which will feature short films made by kids from ages 7-18 - as well as films that are kid themed.

Right after the first day's screenings, we'll be hosting a reception and filmmaker meet  and greet in the theater lobby. And we are  pleased to again be holding our festival after party and awards ceremony at Gowanus' own  celebrated Shapeshifter Lab following the last screening on Sunday evening!

Filmmakers - please submit your films for our consideration on the FilmFreeway link below - but hurry - our deadline is March 20th!

And film enthusiasts - please click here to get tickets!
