Lights, camera… Inwood | Manhattan Times

Two tree leaves meet.

They become lovers.

What happens to the survivor when one is ripped to pieces?

Find out at the second annual Inwood Film Festival.

Designed to showcase and promote the Inwood community through film, the festival, which will include the aforementioned saga courtesy of filmmaker Whit K. Lee (his film is Leaves), will be held on March 17 and 18 at the Campbell Sports Center at Columbia University’s Baker Athletics Complex.

This year’s event features 22 films made in Inwood or by filmmakers who reside in the neighborhood.

Films will be exhibited in six categories, including feature films, documentaries, student films, long shorts and short shorts. A special category will highlight films that capture the spirit and cultural essence of Inwood.

At the conclusion of the festival, awards will be presented for each category.

The festival is the brainchild of three Inwood residents ― Todd Cerveris, Jason Minter and Aaron Simms ― who desired to bring more media options to their home neighborhood.

“It’s a love letter to Inwood,” said Simms when the festival was first announced.
