Get food for the mind — and belly — at the Red Hook Film Fest

Get food for the mind — and belly — at the Red Hook Film Fest
The Red Hook Film Festival will feature “Thread,” a documentary about a Pakistani kite-flying group, that screens Oct. 15 and 16.

The Tribeca Film Festival may be star-studded, but the Red Hook Film Festival’s got free key lime pie.

The annual waterfront film fest, on Oct. 15 and 16, features shorts, experimental films and documentaries by Brooklyn-based filmmakers.

Highlights include the award-winning documentary “Thread,” which focuses on the Pakistani kite flyers of Dyker Heights; and “Undercity,” an inside-look at the uncharted tunnels beneath our borough. The Festival will also celebrate the closing of the Brooklyn Waterfront Artist Coalition’s annual group show, “Tales of Breukelen.”

Come for the movies, stay for the free popcorn — and the free slices of Steve’s Authentic key lime pie.

Red Hook Film Festival at the Brooklyn Waterfront Artist Coalition [499 Van Brunt St. near Reed Street in Red Hook, (718) 596 2507] Oct. 15 and Oct. 16 at 1 pm. For info, visit www.redhookfilmfest.com.
