The Brooklyn Film Festival (BFF), is an International, competitive festival whose mission is to provide a public forum in Brooklyn in order to advance public interest in films and the independent production of films.
The festival hopes to pull international attention to the Brooklyn area and to recognize it as a center for high quality cinema. At a more local level, the discussions and the screenings serve to encourag Brooklyn residents to access and experience the power of independent film making, and to promote artistic excellence and the creative freedom of artists without censure.
This year’s festival will run from June 3 – June 12 and is comprised of 107 features and shorts from 31 countries spread over 6 continents. The program list includes 20 world premieres, 18 US bows, and 30 East Coast debuts and 23 films that are screening in NYC for the first time.
Other special events during the fest include the 12th annual KidsFilmFest 2016 on Saturday, June 4th at the Made in NY Media Center by IFP; the Filmmakers PARTY ON June 8th at the new Double RL store in Williamsburg; the BFF Exchange series of panels on June 11th at BRIC House (including sessions about the Fair Use doctrine, a doc pitch session and “Virtual Reality: A Practical Look”); “The Experiment Edition” party also on June 11th, and the June 12th Awards Ceremony at Windmill Studios NYC.
