The Uptown Short Film Festival (USFF) is a 2-day festival in the heart of the Big Apple, Harlem USA.
The goal of USFF is to express and showcase the diversity of content found in the latest productions from around the world and presents it to enthusiastic film audiences, aspiring actors, filmmakers, and industry professionals.
USFF seeks the next generation of writers, directors, producers, and actors while celebrating innovative storytelling from diverse and inclusive backgrounds. We seek films in which the above the line creative team and the dramatic agency of the film’s main characters must minimally be fully shared by individuals from underrepresented communities of color.
The Uptown Short Film Festival will showcase the best short films and it’s filmmakers from our space and Uptown signature celebrations.
WHAT: Lifestyle expert and media professional Harriette Cole has launched a multi-pronged educational initiative, DREAMLEAPERS, which is designed to help people access and activate their dreams.
The first DREAMLEAPERS Retreat will occur on Saturday, April 2, 2016. More than 20 industry professionals will gather to offer their expertise and advice to support entrepreneurs and those with an entrepreneurial spirit to “leap into their own greatness.” Cole’s premise is that most people have dreams that they wish they could bring to the surface. Either due to fear, lack of time or absence of knowledge, many never even attempt to activate them. Through the support of this day-long event, and follow up webinars, participants will learn how to identify their dreams and gain the professional support needed to get to the next level.
This inaugural retreat is in partnership with Harlem Park 2 Park and will be held at MIST Harlem located at 46 West 116th Street.
This retreat’s focus will be entrepreneurs and those with an entrepreneurial spirit.
Topics to include:
• How to pitch perfectly
• Using social media successfully
• How to sell
• How to promote effectively
• How to get financed

The 2016 Harlem Whiskey Renaissance on March 25, 2016 seeks to celebrate the era of the Harlem Renaissance by providing an evening of music, performance, and of course, whiskey, that hearkens back to the era that gave us everything from Chick Webb to Claude McKay, Louis Armstrong to Zora Neal Hurston to Josephine Baker. We’ve lined up brands to pour whiskey from around the world and talk about the history of their spirits, with music provided by the Renaissance-inspired Dandy Wellington.
Most of the old speakeasies are long gone, but for one night at Mist Harlem, you can get a taste of the Harlem Renaissance along with several tastes of some of the best whiskies in the world.
