THEME: ILLUMINATE
While looking for the film projects we will select, here is the 2015 official protocol:
(It) the project, must reflect furious, explosive, uncontainable, creative intelligence.
(It's) the story, shall be contemporaneous, touchy, irritating, unprecedented.
(She or He) the filmmaker, must follow not traditional thinking. Whether abstract and/or not, She or He must be driving on and across complex, multi-layered, apparently incomprehensible yet deeply meaningful mind roads.
(It) the overall state of mind, is anticipated to be tumultuous, extemporaneous, inspirational, universal, and collective.
(It) the festival, will try to be accommodative, worldly, serious, but not too much, since in the irony and the ambiguity often hides an illuminate open mind.

Organized by the same people who brought to you the Williamsburg Brooklyn Film Festival and the Brooklyn International Film Festival, the 2015 Brooklyn Film Festival is an event developed from 17 years of experience. Rebranded in 2010, the BFF is now driven by an enriched mission.
