Brooklyn has become famous as an international art center but less attention has been paid to Brooklyn’s growing independent film community. The borough has a rich history as an incubator for storytellers from diverse backgrounds, from new transplants to long-time residents to natives. The Art of Brooklyn Film Festival is the first to showcase emerging filmmakers who are based in and/ or inspired by Brooklyn.
Submissions for the 2012 Festival are now open. Filmmakers can submit through Withoutabox or our online submission form. For more information, including Festival rules, fees and more go to http://theartofbrooklyn.org/Film_Festival.html
The Festival will take place August 4 – 12, 2012 at St. Francis College in Downtown Brooklyn.
