New York, NY (July 6, 2022) - The 2022 Lower East Side Film Festival (“LESFF”), running in-person at Village East Cinema from July 7th - 11th and virtually from July 7th - 17th, features the innovative work of creative, up-and-coming filmmakers, and showcases those films in the heart of New York City’s Lower East Side. The festival is a week of curated films, panels and parties with a focus on diversity, originality, quality, and impact. We are committed to creating an unparalleled experience that combines visionary, independent filmmaking with the counterculture spirit of the Lower East Side.
For our 2022 festival, we’re proud to announce a special collaboration with our new neighbor, Bronx Brewery East Village. Together we’ve created our very own custom brew, BXB x LESFF’s ‘Passion Project’ Pale Ale. This passion fruit-infused pale ale, named in honor of our filmmakers’ labors of love, is a medium-bodied, citrus-forward beer and will be available at our screenings and events, as well as on location at Bronx Brewery’s new East Village Tap Room beginning July 7th for a limited time.
More details on the BXB x LESFF’s ‘Passion Project’ Pale Ale:
Pale, refreshing, medium-bodied with a pale golden color. The carapils and white wheat will provide this beer with a nice head with good retention. The addition of cascade and amarillo will provide a zesty citrus flavor that will pair nicely with the passion fruit which will be added during primary fermentation.
The final tasting & kegging of ‘Passion Project Pale Ale’ will be on July 7th at Opening Night at Village East Cinema that evening for all audience members.
