It’s going to be a movie goers’ paradise this August when the Bronx World Film Cycle once again makes its return to the borough.
The non-profit, founded in 2011 by actor Walter Krochmal, made a name for itself in New York City with its first cycle’s signature mix of cutting-edge works from all over the world and in all styles that debuted in lower Manhattan.
The marqueé for this year’s Bronx World Film Cycle features international works from Asia, Australia, Europe, Latin America with many film makers debuting in New York City and America for the first time.
Its programs are sourced from the famous Festival de Cannes in France and the growing circle of filmmakers worldwide who contribute their films year after year.
Starting on Wednesday, August 7, the Summer Cycle returns to Lincoln Hospital’s outdoor plaza with a special spotlight on animation, short documentaries, dance and fantasy films, suitable for all audiences that watch.
Following that, the festival will be at Loreto Playground at Morris Park and Haight Avenues at 8 p.m. on Friday, August 9, then Ambrosini Field at City Island Avenue and Centre Street at 8 p.m. on Sunday, August 11, and then Hunts Point’s Riverside Park on Lafayette Avenue at 8 p.m. on Friday, August 16 before concluding at Crotona Park’s Amphitheatre near its Charlotte Street side at 8 p.m. on Saturday, August 23.
