On Wednesday, February 27, 2019: Katra Film Series kicks off its 8th year. After 7 years on the Bowery, the Katra Film Series is proud to call the Alamo Drafthouse Theater in Brooklyn their new home.
From gun violence to school shootings to the perpetual crisis plaguing the Middle East, the 2019 Season Premiere Event kicks off with a refreshingly bold, stylistic and timely lineup tackling some heavy subject matter. The series also includes films highlighting LGBTQ issues such as CLASS A starring Krystal Joy Brown (best known for her portrayal of Diana Ross in the Broadway Musical Motown) to empowering films made by African-American filmmakers that coincide with Black History Month.
The Season Premiere includes some light-hearted and comedic fare from Brooklyn-based filmmakers with stories that all New Yorkers can relate to such as The Parking Spot, directed by Mario Corry, about a man who can’t find a parking spot and when he does things get testy with a fellow motorist and his wife, starring long-time NY film and stage actress Catherine Curtin (Stranger Things, Homeland, and Orange is The New Black)
Year 8 kicks off with new sponsors and industry leaders Final Draft and Samsung giving away over in $1,000 in prizes. In addition, 3636 Studios and International Screenwriters’ Association returns this year with more prizes for the winning filmmakers. The new HiO City Point store will be providing free beer, wine, and appetizers for a pre-screening mixer for all guests between 6pm-7pm followed by the Alamo Drafthouse presentation, filmmaker Q&As, award ceremony and afterparty at the new Vine Bar on 81 Fleet Pl in Downtown Brooklyn.
