OPENING DAY OF BROOKLYN FILM FESTIVAL – MAY 29

The 23rd BFF is scheduled to run online from May 29 through June 7, around the clock. With this year’s edition, ‘Turning Point’, BFF plans to highlight the global profile of the 2020 lineup throughout the opening day of the festival as we slowly release 4 slates of programming, “Quadrants”, travelling counterclockwise from one corner of the globe to another.

‘Turning Point’ is about refreshing our own point of view. It’s about rethinking our old assumptions and learning from the people who share our screen whether they live on a different continent or across the street. ‘Turning Point’ is about reinventing our planet and our lives.

FRIDAY, MAY 29
