Brooklyn Friends School

A Cinematic Night to Remember: On Friday, May 3 Brooklyn Friends School hosted the 20th Annual Bridge Film Festival – a Friends tribute to the art of film, the power of storytelling, and Quaker ideals in action. The three big events of the festival were screenings of this year’s entries, a pizza party, and an awards ceremony held in the Pearl Street Meetinghouse. The awards show opened by harkening back to the festival’s inaugural year via a spectacular Panthers Supreme dance performance and choreographed by Jamara Hill '10. The host of the show was rising 11th grader and budding stand-up comedian, Alexei Brusiloff. Alexei was as gracious as he was funny, and went above and beyond his hosting duties when he extemporaneously named the Oscar-like awards ceremony, “The Georgies” – the inspiration being George Fox, the founder of the Religious Society of Friends.
