The Art Of Brooklyn Film Festival Aug. 4-12
Film festival alert! From their website…
From Boerum Hill to Bergen Beach, Fort Greene to Flatlands: It’s only Brooklyn when you count every neighborhood and every community. The Art of Brooklyn Film Festival is the first to showcase emerging filmmakers who are Brooklyn-born, Brooklyn-based and/or Brooklyn-centric. We are as diverse, vital and international as the borough itself. Now in its second year, the AoBFF is produced by The Art of Brooklyn, a nonprofit dedicated to celebrating the art and culture of the borough of Brooklyn.
Films are screened at St. Francis College’s 300-seat Founders Hall Theater and 100-seat Maroney Forum for Arts, Culture and Education. St. Francis is centrally located in Brooklyn Heights.
The AoBFF is the only festival in Brooklyn to screen films as part of ExChange, a network of film festivals in the US and Europe. This exclusive partnership gives our filmmakers a chance to reach national and international audiences at partner-festivals in Texas, Seattle, Chicago and Germany. We also have an exclusive partnership with HITflics.com, a cutting edge online film distribution platform. Selections from the 2012 Art of Brooklyn Film Festival will be available to view on HITflics.com after they screen at the festival.
ABOUT THE ART OF BROOKLYN
The Art of Brooklyn curates a conversation between the new, Brooklyn-based art community, immigrants, transplants and those born and raised in the borough. We program events including a Live Performance Series, gallery exhibitions, and our annual Film Festival. We also partner with Brooklyn elementary and secondary schools to improve the cultural literacy of the next generation.
“Brooklyn is the ‘Creative Capital of New York City’ and one of the most diverse places in the world. So what better place for the Art of Brooklyn Film Festival to bring together ‘new’ and ‘old’ Brooklyn… showcasing the extraordinary talents of everyone who calls our borough home.”
— Brooklyn Borough President Marty Markowitz
