Bodega have been invited back to 303Grand, this time for The PerkStreet Lounge!
PerkStreet is a financial services company that offers an online checking account as well as provides perks to it’s members in the form of cash, music downloads and coffee. As part of their launch promotions, PerkStreet is creating a pop up lounge at 303Grand’s space, featuring a program of events to include discussion panels, screenings, DIY, music and food.
On November 15th we are looking to screen short films or videos that relate to music, one of PerkStreet’s, well, perks! Take a look at the full program schedule but in a nutshell here goes : PSFK will be hosting a Good Ideas Salon, Burdastyle will be running a DIY crafting session, Brooklyn Based will be giving a chocolate-making demonstration and Shoestring will be waxing lyrical on how to stay frugal….
The sweet, lowdown: Your films should be no more than 3-12 minutes, you must be from Brooklyn (in New York terms, you must live in a BK hood!) and have directed/produced/conceptualized the film or music video by you or your production crew.
This will be a special VIP event for selected press, industry and creative types only. We’ll be shouting about you all over town from Facebook to Twitter, sending out dedicated email blasts and bragging to press. Basically we’ll have your back and make sure some incredible eyes get to view your work. You’ll also get to spend the afternoon with us - eating, drinking and laughing will be absolutely necessary.
