Bronx Street Art Film to Screen at Urban Festival in Istanbul

Happy to announce that my short documentary film GRAFSTRACT: The Bronx Street Art Renaissance has been named an official selection of the 9th edition of the Istanbul International Architecture and Urban Films Festival in Turkey and will screen this Friday, October 2nd in the 6:00pm block of films at Galata Derneği in Istanbul. The film is the only film from the United States in the competition.

The Chamber of Architects of Turkey, established in 1954, has been organizing the “Istanbul International Architecture and Urban Films Festival” since 2007. The film festival is organized as part of the “Architecture and Urban Festival” realized by the Chamber of Architects of Turkey, Istanbul Metropolitan Branch, on the week starting with “World Architecture Day” which is first Monday of October, and celebrated jointly by 1,400,000 global members of the International Union of Architects-UIA.

The Istanbul International Architecture and Urban Films Festival, which runs from October 2-9, aims at seeking out and sponsoring films that are focused on architectural and urban subjects, encouraging new productions, and conveying unique examples of films to the audience.

GRAFSTRACT was filmed in the Bronx, New York City, back in the summer of 2014 and tells the story of J. "SinXero" Beltran, Founder & Creative Director of TAG Public Arts Project (The Art of Grafstract). The film's message of "Enhancing The Visual Landscape of Urban Communities with Art" seemed a perfect fit for the Istanbul International Architecture and Urban Films Festival, who seek out and sponsor films that are focused on architectural and urban subjects, encouraging new productions, and conveying unique examples of films to the audience.

Very excited that the film, which has already screened in Albania, Switzerland, Mexico and Colombia, and will make its US premiere at the New Urbanism Film Festival in Los Angeles on October 9th, is continuing to reach an international audience...
