25th Brooklyn Film Festival Begins This Friday

Indoor Screenings at Windmill Studios and Online Screenings, June 3-12

BROOKLYN, NEW YORK, May 31, 2022 – Brooklyn Film Festival (BFF) is fast approaching and has an incredible film lineup for its 25th edition, themed “Unthinkable.” On June 3rd, BFF will open the festival with an in-person, World Premiere screening, of the powerful and nuanced coming of age crime drama-thriller, “Signs of Love” written and directed by Clarence Fuller, and produced by David Michaels, starring Hopper Jack Penn (Flag Day), Dylan Penn (Flag Day, Elvis & Nixon), Zoë Bleu, Rosanna Arquette (The L Word, Ratched, Crash), Cree Kawa, and Wass Stevens. All of the key cast and crew, as well as the writer and director, Clarence Fuller, will be in attendance Friday night.

Over the course of the 10-day festival, BFF will present 35 two-hour film programs online via the festival website, and the same 35 programs will be shown in person at Windmill Studios in Greenpoint, with select programs at Union Docs in Williamsburg. The online lineup will be available 24/7 for the entire 10 festival days. The indoor event will feature five programs a day on weekends, and three programs a day on weekdays. Each program is two-hours long.

Along with the film screenings, BFF will offer events on social media, such as pre-recorded filmmaker introductions and Q&A sessions on the festival website. The video server will once again be hosted by Cinesend. Through the resources of our sponsors, BFF will assign to the winning filmmakers $50,000 in total prizes (cash, products, and services). BFF’s list of sponsors for 2022 include: WNET’s All Arts, Brooklyn Film Society, Windmill Studios, Cinelease, Herc, Upper Market Gallery, Quebec Government, PRG, Xeno Lights, AbelCine, Be Electric, Sixpoint, Final Draft, MPE, Big Screen Plaza, Broadway Stages, Media Services, Yelp, Lentini Communications, The Pod, Papapietro Perry, Blue Table Post and Noble Jewelry.

For the first time working with BFF, the 2022 advertising campaign created by MullenLowe New York invites people to keep an open mind and consider thoughts, ideas and nuances that don’t align with their own. If art is raw and unadulterated, and honesty has become offensive, then the Brooklyn Film Festival has something to offend everyone. The promotional spots can be seen here.

The full festival pass for indoor screenings can be purchased in advance, online. All purchased online tickets and passes for BFF indoor programs can be picked up at Windmill Studios once the festival begins.
