2012 Art of Brooklyn Film Festival Wrap-Up

“I have always loved Brooklyn. It is one of the most creative and productive environments in the world. These absolutely unique surroundings deserve to be celebrated with a festival possessing the Art of Brooklyn’s kind of vision: to be a major industry event that gets everyone excited about the things we already know. The whole idea of bringing New and Classic Brooklyn together… nobody else is doing that, until NOW.”​

Frequent Brooklyn resident and actor Eric Mabius (Ugly Betty, Resident Evil, Welcome to the Dollhouse) said that about us. And we know he meant it because he also asked to be a Judge for the 2012 AoBFF. Eric’s quote perfectly sums up our mission and goal for the Art of Brooklyn Film Festival. In our second year, we screened more premieres, had bigger crowds, got great press and made it onto cultural map of Brooklyn in a big way.

Filmmakers came from as close as Brooklyn Heights and as far away as Turkey to attend the festival. And attendees from all over New York City and beyond made their way to St. Francis College to enjoy our amazing independent films. Speaking of which, the winning films from the 2012 AoBFF are:

Best Super Short: SO MUCH LEFT TO DO directed by David Turner

Best Short: THE SHOEMAKER directed by Kaves

Best Short Documentary: HIP HOP HASSID directed by Francesca Pagani

Best Documentary: ROADMAP TO APARTHEID directed by Ana Nogueira
