The Brooklyn Film Festival presents BUT NOT FOR ME with introduction and Q&A with director Ryan Carmichael and actors from the film.

But Not For Me combines hip-hop and spoken word performance with stories of self-realization and love. Will is a young writer living in the big city, and barely scraping by on his copywriter’s salary. When he meets Hope, his beautiful and enigmatic new neighbor, he is certain he has found the inspiration and the validation he’s been seeking. But as he struggles to find his way, Will learns he must reconcile his youthful vision of life with the complexities of the real world in order to find true fulfillment.
