Tomorrow, Thursday September 10th, at the Bronx Documentary Center from 7pm to 9pm, join The Bronx Filmmakers for a FREE event as they present 6 short films as part of their “Made in The Bronx” screening series followed by a Q&A with the filmmakers.
This is a wonderful opportunity to check out The Bronx’s filmmaking talent, an often overlooked segment of the artistic circle of our borough.
Plus you get to see films shot exclusively or mostly in our borough!
The Q&A portion will be moderated by myself and WelcomeToTheBronx couldn’t be happier in doing so to help promote these creative minds.
From The Bronx Filmmakers:
