The Subway Film Series

A FREE screening... as part of the
Queens World Film Festival
Sunday, March 4th, 4pm

Renaissance School
35-59 81st Street
Jackson Heights

Here's more information about the Subway Film Series

The Subway Film Series is a project conceived in 2011 by New York City poet
George Wallace and Jack Feldstein, a transplanted neon animation filmmaker from
Australia, now living in Jackson Heights, after Wallace saw Feldstein's `How To
Be Romantic In New York' at the Bowery Poetry Club. Their subsequent
collaboration on Walt Whitman`s `Manahatta,' which was shown at the Angelika...
for two weeks, led to the duo deciding to pair some of New York's freshest
filmmaking talent with poems from Token Entry: Poems of the NYC Subway (Ed.
Gerry LaFemina, Smalls Books, NY, 2012).

Filmmakers in the series include Heather Spilkin (Claude MacKay/Subway Wind),
Richard Shpuntoff (George Guida/Manhattan Bound F), Don Cato (Cornelius
Eady/Dead Man Rides Subway), Jack Feldstein (Philip Dacey/Subway Services),
Peter Haas (George Wallace/Men & Women on the Subway Line) and Gabriel Rodriguez
(Cheryl Dumesnil/Q to the 6 train). Rodriguez' film debuted Sept 7th, 2011 at
New Filmmakers, Anthology Film Archives.

A series of events is planned through 2012 to show the films in conjunction with
presentation from the anthology. The world premiere for The Subway Film Series
is a free screening at the QWFF 2012, March 4th, 4pm in Jackson Heights.

Three of the 6 filmmakers in this series are from Queens...and some of their
films are set in Queens and Jackson Heights.

These filmmakers are Gabe Rodriguez (Woodside)
Richard Shpuntoff (Elmhurst) and Jack Feldstein (Jackson Heights)

Looking forward to seeing you there.
