The 2017 edition of BAMcinemaFest continues on through Sunday, June 25, and one thing you might notice in some of the festival’s second-week selections is the way they drew out certain thematic threads introduced in some of the films that have already played in its opening weekend. If The Force offered a sobering look at the challenges law enforcement has faced in recent years, Whose Streets? takes a look at civilians galvanized by what many of them feel is an example of police malfeasance.
Now in its ninth year, BAMcinemaFest, running from June 14-25, continues to highlight the best of American independent film, from hot-topic documentaries and experimental works to studio-supported rising stars and regional gems. Among them are new films from some of our favorite local filmmakers, many of whom took time to answer a few of our questions about not only their respective films, but their lives in Brooklyn, moviegoing and otherwise.
Many of the episodes that Lucia Aniello has written and directed for Comedy Central's Broad City are quest narratives that pile complication on top of complication, and they're infused with an often exhilarating sense of free-associative anarchy. A similar anything-goes spirit drives her feature-length directorial debut, Rough Night, which details the outrageous fallout of a bachelorette party gone horribly wrong after one partygoer accidentally kills a male stripper.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Obama AND Romney or Obama + Romney.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used.) For example, search for democrat OR republican to find results that refer to
Democrats and/or Republicans.
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
