With the end of each Christmas brings a slew of unwanted gifts. You know the ones, gift certificates to Applebees or an orange pullover from the Gap. These are the red-headed stepchildren that Father Christmas left behind, cast-offs, trash. Most end up buried in the back of closets or given away, but as they say, one man’s trash is another man’s treasure. Regifting doesn’t have to be a dirty word, especially when you can swap with others, it turns into more of a eco-friendly, feel-good affair.
Join the the Brooklyn Chapter of the The Film Shop at the Music Hall of Williamsburg for a special screening of short films and a massive post-holiday giftswap. After you’ve unloaded your copy of Freaknomics2 to another poor sap, capture that glow of unburdening with a photobooth snap. Special guests also include Xylos, who are part of New York Post’s 10 Artists to Watch in 2011.
Check out a sneak peak of some of the films that will be screened this evening below and get there early to snag the good gifts before you’re the proud owner of two, and not just one snuggies.
