A black, white, and teal logo for Art Slope

The Park Slope Civic Council and Art Slope present a free outdoor screening of films from their Shorts in the Slope short film festival.
Bring your lawn chairs and blankets to the field behind OSH to support talented Brooklyn filmmakers and enjoy movies under the stars!

Art Slope is the arts advocacy committee of the Park Slope Civic Council, whose mission is to enhance the lives of Park Slope residents and visitors.

Local filmmaker Lesley Topping presents her film A River Returns: A History of the Bronx River at OSH at 4 pm (following the 8th Annual Permaculture Festival).

The film educates viewers on the ways in which the Bronx River is a model for the restoration of urban rivers across the US, and how it has been cared for through an alliance of private and government groups, volunteers, students, and educators.

The screening will be followed by a Q&A with filmmakers, historians, and environmentalists.

Join us to view Storytelling, a performance for video in which artist Alicia Grullón re-enacts stories as they were told to her by seniors at the Jackie Robinson Senior Center in Harlem.

Please stay after the screening for a Q&A session with the artist and our curator Katherine Gressel.

Take a trip to the Alice Austen House, one of our Historic House Trust sister houses, for a movie night!

Tonight our friends will be hosting an outdoor screening of “The Edge of Each Other’s Battles: The Vision of Audre Lorde”, a film by Jennifer Abod.

This film documents Black lesbian poet and activist Audre Lorde’s (1934-92) social vision, using footage from the four-day conference: I am your sister: forging global connections across differences, held in Boston in 1990.

Space is limited, email info@aliceausten.org to reserve your place.
