Showcasing films making the festival rounds today, BAMcinemaFest continues its reign as the best American indie-bearing festival to hail from Brooklyn. Spanning 12 days, the slate includes a mix of comedies, dramas, and documentaries, 24 of which are making their New York premieres. Highlights include Richard Linklater's coming-of-age epic Boyhood, David Wain and Michael Showalter's They Came Together, Amanda Rose Wilder's documentary Approaching the Elephant, SXSW winner 10,000KM, Joe Swanberg's Happy Christmas starring Lena Dunham and Anna Kendrick, and Zachary Wigon's The Heart Machine, which explores dating in the digital age. Also of note, Boon Joon Ho's dynamite sci-fi thriller Snowpiercer is the festival centerpiece, documentary filmmaker Les Blank is celebrated with a free fete in Brooklyn Bridge Park, and closing night serves up a 25th anniversary screening of Spike Lee's Do the Right Thing. Do plan on staying through the credits, many of the filmmakers will be on hand for Q&As.
