Williamsburg Independent Film Festival

“Shoot Me Nicely”, a comedy featuring its stars exploring media, high fashion, and celebrity in NY will premiere at the Film Festival on its opening night, November 17th at 9PM.

The film was shot mostly in Brooklyn so director Elias Plagianos decided that Williamsburg Independent Film Festival would be the most ideal outlet to premiere the film at. Some of the cast members will also be available for select interviews at the screening event.
