Tonight: Film screenings

A scene from "Hug," a short film by Khary Jones

In this kind of weather, the most appealing thing to do is kick back with a movie and some drinks.

You can do just that tonight at Galapagos Art Space, when Scene: Brooklyn, a program of the Brooklyn Arts Council, kicks off with "Framing Fiction," featuring the work of local, up-and-coming filmmakers.

There's the short narrative film Hug, directed by Khary Jones, which recently made a debut at Sundance, followed by Charles Divak's "The Wildflower," Kristen Swanbeck's "Single Girl," Natalia Leite's "Dash," Jonathan Emmerling's "The Funeral," and Christopher Radcliff's "Bonnie Rocks."

The screenings start at 7 p.m.

Following that, at 9 p.m., there's "L'Eau Life," directed by the well-known painter and experimental filmmaker Jeff Scher. The film screens as part of the "Artists in Residence" program, which will also feature tonight the world premiere of "Design by the Book," a film in which Grace Bonney of the blog Design*Sponge.

The film follows five Brooklyn-based artists—a glassblower, letterpress printer, ceramicist, pattern designer, and self-described “maker of things”— as they uncover hidden treasures in The New York Public Library.

Bonney, as well as the director, James Murdock, design blogger Amy Azzarito, and featured artists Julia Rothman and Mike Perry will be on hand for a Q&A following the screening.
