What better way to celebrate Women’s History month than to give back to those in need? Wordat4F and Wendy Angulo Productions in collaboration with LatinosNYC (a non-profit organization dedicated to enriching the lives of the less fortunate) will host a Brunch in the name of #DistributingDignity to collect feminine hygiene products for NYC’s homeless women who are living on the streets.
Join them for an afternoon of live painting, performances and much more. Entrance requires monetary donations or feminine hygiene products.

Find out at the second annual Inwood Film Festival.
Designed to showcase and promote the Inwood community through film, the festival, which will include the aforementioned saga courtesy of filmmaker Whit K. Lee (his film is Leaves), will be held on March 17 and 18 at the Campbell Sports Center at Columbia University’s Baker Athletics Complex.
This year’s event features 22 films made in Inwood or by filmmakers who reside in the neighborhood.
Films will be exhibited in six categories, including feature films, documentaries, student films, long shorts and short shorts. A special category will highlight films that capture the spirit and cultural essence of Inwood.
At the conclusion of the festival, awards will be presented for each category.
The festival is the brainchild of three Inwood residents ― Todd Cerveris, Jason Minter and Aaron Simms ― who desired to bring more media options to their home neighborhood.
“It’s a love letter to Inwood,” said Simms when the festival was first announced.

Is Harlem coming or going? Evolving into its next iteration or disappearing under the onslaught of change? It depends on whom you ask. For the photographer David Vades Joseph, who grew up in the neighborhood’s Hamilton Heights section, Harlem is an idea that is vanishing daily. “Certain mom and pop stores that I’ve walked past most of my life aren’t there anymore,” Mr. Vades Joseph, 30, said recently. “Buildings that I grew up with are being torn down and replaced by condominiums. It’s haunting, in a way.”
In 2010, Mr. Vades Joseph began to photograph vestiges of his old Harlem before they disappeared: the annual parades and watering holes where people gathered in the manner of generations past. He shot in black and white, noticing only later that his photographs seemed rooted as much in the past as in the moments he photographed. He was shooting backward, to a time he knew only in memory. Mostly he shot people rather than buildings, he said, because he felt the community’s essence lay in the neighbors who shared their dreams or hopes, not in the architecture where those dreams sometimes crumbled.
