Conversation with Ira Sachs
To kick off the festival weekend, BFF invites all festival filmmakers, participants and weekend attendees for an intimate conversation with Ira Sachs.
Festival Director Kweighbaye Kotee will sit down with Sachs, a humanistic director who thoroughly explores themes such as gay identity, class inequality and gentrification, to discuss the evolution of his career. The conversation will provide an inside look into his creative and development process and a wide range of topics will be discussed, from his early short films to his latest feature, Little Men, to his role as the executive director of the non-profit arts organization, Queer/Art.
The 9th Annual Bushwick Film Festival will officially open Thursday, September 29 and closes Sunday, October 2nd.
