Mott Haven clothing shop, Bronx Native, and indie film screening startup, Entholigy, have partnered up to celebrate local film in Bronx.
Hosting their second screening on Saturday, April 27th at the Bronx Native shop, five films were screened from local Bronx filmmakers in front of a small audience.
“We started in Brooklyn, but ultimately Entholigy’s mission is to bring together the indie film community throughout all 5 Boroughs of New York.” said Esteban Jaramillo, Co-Founder and Creative Director at Entholigy.
Entholigy brings together independent filmmakers in non-traditional spaces a few nights a month to celebrate local film in the many neighborhoods of New York City. The startup usually draws large crowds of 40 – 80 people where 5 local filmmakers have the opportunity to share and discuss their work in front of a small audience. Screening spaces include rustic bars, Moroccan Cafes, boutique post-production studios, Japanese cultural centers, courtyards, clothing shops, and more.
“Great film comes in all different flavors and breathes throughout all 5 Boroughs and neighborhoods of this city. We knew that we had to come to The Bronx to spread this effort,so we reached out to The Bronx Native to get this done right.” said Ethan Messinger, Founder of Entholigy.
