Brooklyn Film Festival Starts Next Week

(released 5/24/2024)

The 27th Brooklyn Film Festival 2024 is themed IMMERSION. This year, BFF will be staged from May 31-June 9, in-person at Windmill Studios in Greenpoint with additional screenings being held on June 3-June 6, at the Wythe Hotel Cinema in Williamsburg. All films will also be available online via the festival website.

"Immersion is the theme of the 27th Brooklyn Film Festival. A theme that reveals the festival intention and the desire of our selected filmmakers to tell stories in a vertical fashion. Stories that dive way beyond the surface to force the audience to consider not only the obvious outcomes and meanings, but also the hidden and secret ones," said the festival director, Marco Ursino. "In the extremely complex historical and political moment that we are experiencing, we need to understand the truth of things. BFF believes in the truthful spirit of indie filmmakers, and this year we offer the opportunity of a collective immersion, triggered by the film programs, the Q&As at the end of the screenings, the various networking parties, and the infinite chats on social media. We look forward to share with the filmmakers, the media, and the audience our true hopes and inner dreams. Enjoy the immersion."

On May 31, BFF will open the festival with the East Coast premiere of the historical and poetic story, a choral in structure, a hybrid between documentary and fiction, Atikamekw Suns. Directed by ChloƩ Leriche, it is the story of tragic loss and is freely inspired by the dreams, impressions, and memories of the victims' loved ones.

Over the course of the 10-day festival, BFF will present 42 two-hour film programs, 29 of which will be shown at Windmill Studios in Greenpoint, and 11 at the Wythe Hotel in Williamsburg. The online lineup (all the films selected) will be available 24/7 from June 1-9. Furthermore, 20 films will be shown, online only, as part of kidsfilmfest, now in its 20th year.
