The festival also includes free, hands-on interactive activities throughout the Peter Jay Sharp Building. In the lobby visitors will find face painters, balloon artists, interactive juggler-stilt walker Billy Schultz, and The Muse Brooklyn’s unicyclist Harold Moeller. Before film screenings, expert clown Chris Sheer from The Muse Brooklyn will perform an interactive magic show.

The BAMcafé will host button-making; a stop motion animation workshop with BRIC teaching artist Haley Shibble; Indie Tech Games with Karioki Crosby and Nathan Williamson from Latimer Heights, and special BAMcafé performances.
