THE FILM AND… FESTIVAL: YEAR ZERO

THURSDAY, OCTOBER 17 – SUNDAY, OCTOBER 20, 2019

This new festival – officially launching in 2020 – will feature, well, Film AND… just about anything. The focus is on expanded film screenings and film-related events and will include live scores, comedy and theater performances, interviews, art exhibits, concerts, lectures, visiting artists of all disciplines, and more.

For this “Year Zero” iteration of the festival, the Brattle will host a soft-launch focusing on just a handful of events. Thursday will feature the launch of a new limited-edition poster; Friday will be a special screening with a comedic guest TBA; and Sunday will bring a live-score to a silent film.

The centerpiece of this edition is a special screening on Saturday evening with acclaimed author Jonathan Lethem (Fortress of Solitude, Motherless Brooklyn, The Feral Detective). Lethem will invite a friend to the Brattle to engage in a live commentary track for a film they mutually admire – expect a wide-ranging conversation during this unique event!

More details on all will be announced in mid-September.
