Brooklyn, NY (June 14, 2022) – Brooklyn Film Festival’s 25th edition, “Unthinkable,” which was staged both in person at Windmill Studios and online, wrapped up Sunday, June 12th, and has announced the winners of the festival’s awards. Three groups determined the winners: 1) The external panel of judges; 2) The festival Board of Directors; and 3) the Audience. Through the resources of industry-related sponsors, selected filmmakers are awarded more than $50,000 in cash, products and services.
Pour L’Amour picked up the coveted Grand Chameleon and the Best Narrative Feature awards. From the Hood to the Holler took home the award for Best Documentary Feature.
“BFF’s 25th edition was a wonderful journey with a diverse and eccentric film program, and a group of programmers who made the 2022 fest, “Unthinkable,” a truly remarkable adventure. In the end, it was pretty much what it was setup to be: a quirky, but optimistic trajectory in the midst of one of the toughest human crises many have experienced, for the very first time, in their life,” said Marco Ursino, Brooklyn Film Festival Executive Director. “Thanks to all the indie filmmakers, for helping us re-imagine a new world.”
