Sound Side Film Festival is a night of short films and multimedia experiences on the North Fork on August 6th 2020, as part of Community Action Southold’s (CAST) Drive-In Thursdays series. The drive-in event includes the premiere of Bluepoint, a never-before-seen award-winning short film made in the North Fork, as well as projections, and more.
Sound Side Film Festival is a chance to experience independent film at a time when public screenings have come to a halt. This one-night-only event is brought to you by CAST and Wild Jelly Live, a filmmaking collective run by Zoe Fleer and Alley Leinweber. The two filmmakers spent the past year in Peconic Bay, working alongside Cornell Cooperative Extension SPAT Program to make Bluepoint and write the corresponding TV series. Since then, the short has been nominated for an NBR award and was set to premier at BAM, while the series won the Tribeca Sloan Student Discovery Award. When the pandemic struck, and the theaters shut down, Alley and Zoe decided to premier in the place and community where Bluepoint was born. “Bluepoint takes place in a fishing town at the end of Long Island, where Bella’s marriage is tested when an algae bloom threatens her family oyster business.” See film teaser https://vimeo.com/429431193.
Sound Side Film Festival and CAST look forward to a night celebrating local film in a safe and exciting way with the community. Tickets are $50/car and include popcorn, a chance to win prizes, and access to interactive media curated by the filmmakers. 100% of proceeds go directly to CAST, a non-profit organization helping underserved populations on the North Fork of Long Island since 1965. https://castnorthfork.org/
