After the success of our monthly New York City event, Storyhunter ScreenUp is going global!
Our Latin America ScreenUp tour will begin in Rio de Janeiro at a new venue, Teto Solar, in the Botafogo neighborhood. On December 10th, the happy hour will start at 8pm, and at 10pm the dance floor will open, where we’ll be projecting some of our films and then video chatting around the world with the Storyhunters who made them.
Three days later, we’ll head to São Paulo, a huge metropolis filled with talented filmmakers and Storyhunters. This ScreenUp will start at 7pm on December 13 at Puri Bar, a restaurant/bar in the heart of the city with an outdoor patio. We’ll do the screening with local Storyhunters presenting the films they’ve done for us.
ScreenUps in Buenos Aires and Mexico City are also in the works. If you know any doc filmmakers or VJs in any of these cities, please spread the word!
Also, on December 28, we’ll be having the ScreenUp NYC Holiday Bash with our good friends at the ReRun GastroPub Theater in Dumbo Brooklyn, just off the York stop on the F-train. Filmmakers from around the world will present their docs, and after the screening we’ll pump up the music and have a party in the theater! Doors open at 9:15pm. Screening begins at 10:15pm. Wear a festive hat.
To never miss a ScreenUp, join our Meetup group, Facebook group, like our fan page or just follow us on Twitter.
Also, if you want to submit a short film (under 9 minutes) to screen at one of these ScreenUps, please send an email to alex(at)storyhunter(dot)tv.
A poetry movement, which fostered an artistic community in the outskirts of São Paulo, travels for the first time to Rocinha, the notorious favela that sits in the hills of Rio de Janeiro. Storyhunters Livia Perini and Alice Molinari report.
As Syria's civil war drags on, snipers are becoming more prevalent for both government forces and opposition rebels. In Aleppo, entire neighborhoods are now made up of "sniper alleys". Ali Belkesh, one of these rebel snipers, spends his days targeting government soldiers. Storyhunter Toby Muse documents Ali's daily life.
