This year's festivities are hosted by Gowanus funnyman Dale Seever of DaleRadio.com. Auction bidders will compete to acquire one of our many amazing items or curated lots of repurposed merchandise. Our star curators this year include Academy Award-nominated filmmaker and activist Morgan Spurlock; "Dirty Money" co-host/designer-builder Jimmy DiResta; comedian/writer/producer and host of IFC's game show "Bunk" Kurt Braunohler; design guru/TED talker Jesse Arrington; and Project Runway anti-designer Buffi Jashanmal.
Live music will be provided by live-wire legends of the Lone Star music scene The Allen Oldies Band from Houston, Texas. Led by Allen Hill, the High Priest of the Oldies, this band delivers vintage classics from the '50s and '60s with a barnburner of a stage show that has to be seen to be believed.
Event attendees can purchase local vendor wares such as $1 Brooklyn Brewery beverages, $2 tacos from Oaxaca and $2 sliders from Root Hill Burger.
This event will raise funds to continue the mission and operations of Film Biz Recycling, which operates an 11,000-square-foot reuse facility in Gowanus, Brooklyn, and has diverted over 600,000 pounds from landfills as part of its mission of preventing pollution, creating green jobs and aiding our community via the reuse and distribution of film set materials.

Film Biz Recycling was founded in 2008 by 15-year film biz veteran Eva Radke as a solution to the needless dumpster disposal of wardrobe, set dressing, props and raw materials as a (still) rampant and egregiously wasteful practice.
FBR is the only organization of it's kind world-wide and
a pillar in the sustainable film community
