This Saturday – The Standard’s High Line Room in the Meatpacking District is offering up an indie-movie binge-watch, with Q&As, that will appease your inner cinephile and help a good cause.
Thanks to Netflix, the idea of binge-watching something has gone from “guilty pleasure” to normal rainy-weekend behavior. Whether your vice is marathon viewing sessions of series or movies, The Standard’s High Line Room (848 Washington Street in the Meatpacking District) has prepared a day-long event that will scratch that binge-watch itch.
The Standard will be screening four amazing indie-movies back to back with Q&A’s curated by filmmaker Crystal Moselle and designer Lyz Olko. An event like this you might expect to cost a small fortune, but no. Admission is priced at $7, and that includes all 4 screenings and the Q&As. As if that weren’t enough 100% of the proceeds go to Ghetto Film School, an award-winning non-profit that works to educate and develop the next generation of great American storytellers.
Here’s the lineup:
12:00 pm – The Fits (director Anna Rose Holmer)
1:45 pm – Heaven Knows What (co-director Josh Sadie)
4:00 pm – Nerve (co-directors Henry Joost and Ariel Schulman)
6:15 pm – Tangerine (talent TBA)
