AWARDS & JURY WINNERS
With our 20th anniversary around the corner, the festival feels like floating in mid-air between our history and our plans for the future. It is this subtle sense of instability that fuels “Experiment” Edition. The experiment is reinventing ourselves, it is about allowing the unknown, and it’s about paying attention to the youngest storytellers. Every year we launch a new generation of talent and this year’s selection is as experimental as mind altering.
Organized by the same people who brought to you the Williamsburg Brooklyn Film Festival and the Brooklyn International Film Festival, the Brooklyn Film Festival is an event developed from 19 years of experience. Rebranded in 2010, the BFF is now driven by an enriched mission.
