Film About Coney Island Wins High School Film Prize

First place in Tuesday night's BK 4 Reel competition - in which local high school students submitted 2-3 minute videos depicting 'their Brooklyn' - went to Park Slope teen Derek Garcia, for his film about taking the F train down to Coney in the wintertime.

Tied for second place were Shalik Wilson for his film about life in Bushwick's Borinquen Houses, and Axel Lindy for his film about sneaking out at night to hang out on the Brooklyn Promenade.

All three films will be shown on the BK 4 Reel program and
Brooklyn Community Access Television.
