After an amazing beginning at the Hip Hop Film Festival in August, the monthly series version of the award-winning film festival’s programming for writers and actors is now in full effect!
Billed as “NYC’s only open mic for writer’s and actors”, ACT UP! promises to be a true ecosystem for the film community.
The evening begins with writers and actors meeting at the top floor of NBT’s luxuriously appointed two story gallery at 2037 Fifth Avenue to prepare for the live read potion of the evening. The lower level houses the performance space, where the live reads take place in front of an audience of directors, producers and film investors – all looking for the next great project.
The event is hosted by Actress/Comedian Quala, and features a new celebrity narrator every month.
Act Up! is presented by Harlem Film House and powered by Final Draft.
