Within the festival, there will be six programs—Opening Nite, Music Driven, Midnite, Matinee, NoBudge, and Closing Nite—across multiple locations, including the Prospect Park location, with post-screening parties hosted in the Trees Lounge bar. Music Driven, Midnite, Matinee and NoBudge will be at the Williamsburg location.
