THEME: ILLUMINATE
2015 official protocol:
The project, must reflect furious, explosive, uncontainable, creative intelligence.
The story, shall be contemporaneous, touchy, irritating, unprecedented.
The filmmaker, must follow not traditional thinking. Whether abstract and/or not, She or He must be driving on and across complex, multi-layered, deeply meaningful mind roads.
The overall state of mind, is anticipated to be tumultuous, extemporaneous, inspirational, universal, and collective.
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.



FESTIVAL BACKGROUND
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 18 years of experience. Rebranded in 2010, the BFF is now driven by an enriched mission.
