The 6th Annual Kicking + Screening Soccer Film Festival New York is at Tribeca Cinemas April 8-11, 2014. The festival brings soccer and film enthusiasts together for four nights of films from around the world about what makes the beautiful game so beautiful.

Tribeca Cinemas is a bar with two screening rooms. People hang out in the bar all night. In addition to a lot of soccer and film fans, there will very likely be a few sports personalities at the festival. It’s a great chance to have some fun and do some great networking with sports fans.

Kicking and Screening Opening Night

The festival opens with the World Premiere of Scott Boggins and Gabriel Spitzer’s American film Rise as One: One Nation. The film, part of a documentary series, tells the story of how the French Men’s national team’s World Cup win in Paris in 1998 helped heal racial divisions in the country and the sport. Filmmakers Boggins and Spitzer have 15 Emmy Awards between them so this should be good.

The second bill is Birgit Ehret’s German film 1905ers: With Heart, Mind, and Soul. It tells the story of the challenges and triumphs of a semi-professional soccer fan club in Göttingen, Germany.

Kicking and Screening Closing Night

The festival closes with the World Premier of another installment of Scott Boggins and Gabriel Spitzer’s American documentary series Rise as One: Match for Peace. This one tells the story of of how an exhibition match between World Cup champions Brazil and war torn Haiti helped lift the spirits of the island nation during one of its darkest hours.

Second billing goes to Luis Menegaz’ Brazilian film Geronimo’s Promise. Best friends Bruno and Leandro get tickets to the 2014 World Cup Final (in the story at least) between arch soccer rivals Brazil and Argentina, but their car breaks down on the way to the stadium. While listening to the match on the car radio, hope shows up. Can they make it to the game of their dreams? You have to go to the 6th Kicking + Screening Soccer Film Festival 2014 to find out.
