The Annual Brainwash Drive-In/Bike-In/Walk-In Movie Festival 
With a virtual plethora of weird, unusual and just plain great short and feature movies, this year again promises to be worthy of the culmination of over 20 years of fine movies for audience enjoyment and edification from Brainwash. A must see again this year, including movies that will entice, shock the sensibilities and touch your heart. Witness, also, the settings: Nimby, the original DIY industrial art space in Oakland.
The New York Times says the Brainwash Movie Festival “pirat[es] a piece of that old Hollywood magic and challeng[es] conventions on the role of public space in the process.”
You won’t want to miss it!
