AWARDS & JURY WINNERS
Brooklyn Film Festival (BFF) themed the 2014 edition:
Is there a winning Formula to communicate with the audience and ultimately create a successful independent film? We ponder this complex question by thinking about the chemistry that might ultimately achieve such a formula. Do formulas apply exclusively to big budget filmmaking, are there formulas for independent filmmakers, and is there such a thing as formula-free filmmaking? How does a project preserve its independent spirit when the story is told by adopting proven storytelling formulas? And what has the independent film movement done in recent years to adapt new methods of filmmaking? We encourage our filmmakers, audiences, industry guests, Brooklyn, all New Yorkers and the rest of the world to stir the ingredients in this potent and perplexing formula.
From the same people who brought to you the Williamsburg Brooklyn Film Festival and the Brooklyn International Film Festival, here comes an event developed from 16 years of experience. The new brand Brooklyn Film Festival is driven by an enriched mission.
