Spectacle Theater, a place of viewing movies and gathering for a collective of filmmakers, collectors, editors, performers, and artists, was the perfect place to interview Nick Shimkin. He isn't called a "walking IMDB" by Brooklyn friends for no reason, and he certainly contributes to the curating of DIY, independent film screenings that have become so important to the Brooklyn art culture. What does Brooklyn mean to him? Watch to find out.

Nick Shimkin is the Film Program Coordinator for Brooklyn Arts Council’s 'Scene: Brooklyn' series. He is a devoted cinephile, passionate about curating film and new media and preserving the collective viewing experience. Nick is also currently serving as Artistic Director at the City University Film Festival at Macaulay (CUFF), and is co-founder of “Kings County Cinema Society,” an ongoing, roving, (very) eclectic screening series based strictly in Brooklyn. He has previously worked with the Hamptons, Sarasota, Provincetown and Williamsburg Film Festivals.
