Award-winning cable TV and digital network BRIC TV celebrated the kick-off of its fall 2016 season on Thursday, September 29 with a launch party fit for the best of Brooklyn.
Along with announcing the line-up of shows offered on the nonprofit community TV channel and digital network, the launch party featured some of Brooklyn’s top DJs, a sneak peak of things to come and an audience of some of the borough’s independent filmmakers.
“BRIC TV celebrated our first year of programming last week with a fantastic crowd featuring Brooklyn-based filmmakers, producers, artists, activists, journalists and supporters,” added Aziz Isham, an executive producer with BRIC TV. “Alongside cocktails and snacks, the emmy-winning BRIC TV team also unveiled their new slate of programming, including twelve original series, short documentaries, Town Hall specials and more.”
The day also marked the official launch of BRIC RADIO, a new medium for the media organization.
“BRIC TV is a prime example of the power and appeal of local non-profit television as an alternative to the continually consolidating mainstream,” Isham said. “We have come a long way towards showing how a small, diverse team of producers and journalists can provide a unique perspective and make a big impact. And now, with the launch of BRIC Radio, we are expanding our ability to share ideas and reach audiences in a new and fresh way. As we reflect on the terrific work our team has produced over the past year, we are even more excited about sharing what we have in store for the new season.”
