The Art of Brooklyn Film Festival is the only independent international film festival for, by and about the Brooklyn indie film scene. Founded in 2011, The AoBFF screens work by Brooklyn-born, Brooklyn-based and Brooklyn-centric filmmakers. That is, those who live or work in the borough; were born, raised and/or spent significant time here (no matter where they live now); and international films that were inspired by Brooklyn. We are unique in that every film we show has a connection to Brooklyn’s indie film scene — in the borough and around the world.
From Boerum Hill to Bergen Beach. Fort Greene to Flatlands. Cobble Hill to Canarsie. It's only Brooklyn when you count every neighborhood and every community. We are as diverse, vital and international as the borough itself. And everyone is invited to our party.
Categories include Features, Shorts, Documentaries and Animation in all genres. Special categories include the Dark Side for horror/ suspense/ noir and Film As Art for non-linear/experimental/avant-garde films.
