Today’s news:

‘The Warriors’ — the real ones! — headline the Coney film fest

Brooklyn Daily

The inspiration for Coney Island’s cult classic gangster flick, “The Warriors,” is taking his own turn on the silver screen at the neighborhood’s upcoming film festival, which also includes horror movies, animated cartoons and a full slate of works from the borough’s best and brightest aspiring film makers.

Reformed gang leader Keith Suber tells his real-life tale of crime and redemption in “The Last Immortal,” a documentary made by local history buff Charlie Denson that headlines the 11th annual Coney Island Film Festival from Sept. 23 to Sept. 25.

The three-day movie bash features more than 100 films, animated cartoons and music videos — and of course a screening of “The Warriors,” the low-budget, late-1970s thriller that was shot in part at the People’s Playground.

There’s also a full-length horror film, “The Super,” about every renter’s worst nightmare; “Surfer’s Way,” a short documentary about disabled children who find joy in hanging 10; and “First Kiss,” the story of, well, a game-changing smooch.

The festival’s third day is devoted exclusively to films about Coney Island.

Festival director Rob Leddy said the finalists were chosen from a field of more than 700 submissions.

“People will see films that they don’t see anywhere else,” said Leddy. “It’s a totally different experience than you’d get in a movie theater.”

Coney Island Film Festival at Sideshow by the Seashore [1208 Surf Ave. between W. 12th Street and Stillwell Avenue in Coney Island, (718) 372-5159]. Individual screenings are $6 (full pass is $55). For info, visit www.coneyislandfilmfestival.com.
