Saturday: ‘Nitehawk Shorts Festival Day One’ 11:45 a.m. is the inaugural Nitehawk Cinema Shorts Festival to be an equally accurate representation of the culture. The weekend-long series highlights New York and specifically Brooklyn-based experimental filmmakers. Today’s brunchtime screenings are a collection of films made between 2011 and 2013, while things get psychedelic at midnight with rarely seen music videos, comedy clips, and far-out animation. The hyper-condensed collection of five-second films is not to be missed. The winner will receive 20 hours of color grading from sponsor Nice Shoes. $15 fee.
