The Art of Brooklyn Film Festival

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 founded the Art of Brooklyn Film Festival (AoBFF) in 2011 because Brooklyn needs a major independent film festival. While there are several niche festivals in our borough, they're based around individual neighborhoods and are limited in scope. Founded and run by Brooklyn-born and based working artists, the AoBFFcreates the first large-scale, borough-wide platform for independent film.

 

The AoBFF is the only independent, international film festival built entirely around Brooklyn, a local independent scene with global influence. We focus on Brooklyn‐born, Brooklyn-based and Brooklyn-centric films and filmmakers and we screen work from all over the world whose creators live, work in, or are inspired by Brooklyn's indie film scene.

 

We conceived the AoBFF as a festival that speaks to Brooklyn as a whole, where many demographics overlap. We bring the new, artist-centric Brooklyn community together with "Classic Brooklyn" – natives and immigrant communities at a single event. We are as diverse, vital and international as the borough itself. And everyone is invited to our party.



Films are screened at 300-seat Founders Hall Theater at St. Francis College in Brooklyn Heights, 300-seat Kumble Theater at LIU Brooklyn and select locations around the borough.



The AoBFF is the only festival in Brooklyn to screen films as part of ExChange, a network of film festivals in the US and Europe. This exclusive partnership gives our filmmakers a chance to screen at RxSM Film Expo in Austin, TX. 



ABOUT THE ART OF BROOKLYN

The Art of Brooklyn is a not-for-profit organization that curates a conversation between the new, Brooklyn-based art community, immigrants, transplants and those born and raised in the borough.

3rd Intervideo Talent Award

Films Wanted! 3rd Intervideo Talent Award

Tomorrow we will see - "Changes"

Imperfectu: International Film and Gender Festival

Through film, art, and gender studies, Imperfectu: International Film and Gender Festival celebrates and examines the diversity of gender identities and expressions, as well as of sexual identities and orientations, while embracing varied and alternative feminisms.

Imperfectu explores the infinite possibilities that sex, gender and sexuality fields offer to us, questioning the primacy of the conventions to which the binary gender system and heteronormativity limit us. Furthermore, this festival gives room to feminist expressions that know how to include these infinite possibilities in their discourses.

PLACE

The festival will take place in Tijuana, Mexico.
A selection of the screened works in Tijuana will also be presented in Berlin, Germany.

VENUES

Tijuana Cultural Center (CECUT)
Tijuana University CUT
Berlin venue TBD

DATES

The festival will be held from April 1st to 6th, 2014 (Tijuana, Mexico).
The dates for the Berlin screenings will be announced later.

 

MEANING

Through the word “imperfectu” we want to give a new value to the concept of imperfection within the gender studies framework. The “-tu” ending avoids the gender morpheme that in Spanish language is used when the noun “imperfection” becomes an adjective. At the same time, this ending makes a reference to the Spanish pronoun “tú” (“you”) in order to create closeness to the individual.

“Imperfectu” is an invented adjective that seeks identification and fraternity between those who somehow transgress the binary system of sex and gender and heteronormativity and, therefore, are seen as outsiders of “normality” and even as “imperfect beings”. Through this festival, what a binary and heteronormative culture reads as “imperfect” is simply read as “non-normative” and, consequently, considered “normal” and celebrated from a second reading that becomes liberal and intelligent.

 

OBJECTIVES

  • 1. To encourage education, analysis and discussion about the relationship that cinema, art and popular culture maintain with gender studies.
  • 2. To open a cultural space that creates visibility for all those communities whose tendencies are different from the conventional concepts of sex, gender and sexuality.
  • 3. To promote art with a gender focus.
  • 4. To celebrate sexual and gender diversity.
  • 5. To create identification and fraternity among all those individuals whose tendencies are different from the conventional concepts of sex, gender and sexuality.
  • 6. To express alternative feminisms that know how to combine their ideologies and movements and sexual and gender diversity.
  • 7. To include. This festival in any way excludes cisgender communities; on the contrary, it seeks the integration of all types of gender and transgender manifestations.
  • 8. To fight homophobia, lesbophobia, biphobia and transphobia, encouraging acceptance and tolerance of all those individuals whose tendencies are different from the conventional concepts of sex, gender and sexuality. Although all these objectives will have an impact directly on Tijuana society, they will also reach the Baja California and the Mexican societies as well as Spanish speaking and English speaking communities through the festival’s publications.

Gothenburg Independent Film Festival (Sweden)

Gothenburg Independent Film Festival is a new upcoming festival for independent film makers arranged by the NGO Film För Fred (film for peace). The festival aspires to acknowledge and inform about the urgent social, environmental and political issues of the world. Using film to approach these questions in artistic and creative ways, we wish to create a common space where organisations, filmmakers and audience from different countries can meet to discuss and cooperate for future projects.

 

 

Bad Film Fest

Not bad meaning bad, but bad meaning good.

The Bad Film Fest aims to be the baddest film festival it can be.

Want to shoot something stupid or ridiculous? Go for it. Don't fear what the audience will think. 
Create for the sake of creating.

The ESFF is currently accepting submissions from talented filmmakers who would like to screen a film at the weeklong festival in June 2014. Whether you are a student filmmaker or have been in the industry for years, we’d like to hear from you.

The ESFF is a fast-growing festival in Scotland’s capital, a city famous for its dynamic, cutting-edge cultural scene. All genres of film will be considered; we’ve screened animation, drama, comedy, documentary and art house film in the past. What we’re really looking for are films that hook the audience with their beautifully realised ideas, innovative narratives and inspiring techniques.

Last year, we screened 98 films to hundreds of guests across some of the most prominent arts venues in the city. We received films from 14 countries across the world and international filmmakers from as far afield as Abu Dhabi and Chile joined us, participating in our workshops and attending screenings.

Our plans for the ESFF in 2014 are bigger and better than ever; not only will you get the chance to screen your film at this prominent event, but we’d also like to invite you to participate in workshops and attend the ESFF closing party where you can mingle with other like-minded filmmakers while possibly picking up one of the prizes on offer.

Food Film Festival

The Food Film Festival is a three-day festival on everything related to food: eating in the broadest sense of the word. There is so much to say about food and at the same time how and what we eat says so much about us. Food is culture; food is identity. During three days the Food Film Festival attempts to cover all aspects of everything related to food. Aside from documentaries, feature films, animation, short and experimental films the festival boasts a variety of debate, lectures, live shows and workshops. This broad approach leads to the multifaceted program the subject deserves. The Food Film Festival believes that good stories have the power to transform the world. By creating a stage for food stories the Food Film Festival hopes to convey the love for food and at the same time it denounces the many problems related to our current day food system.
