Call For Entries: The Fourth Annual Art of Brooklyn Film Festival is now accepting submissions

Submissions are now open for the 4th Annual Art of Brooklyn Film Festival, which is scheduled to take place May 7-11, 2014.

The Art of Brooklyn Film Festival is the only independent international film festival for, by and about the Brooklyn indie film scene. 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. The AoBFF is unique in that every film shown 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. Founded by Brooklyn-born indie filmmakers, the AoBFF is as diverse, vital and international as the borough itself. And everyone is invited to the party.

Categories include Features, Shorts, Documentaries and Animation in all genres. Special categories include theDark Side for horror/suspense/noir and Film As Art for non-linear/experimental/avant-garde films. In the past, the AoBFF has screened a film from Turkey that was inspired by Brooklyn’s diversity and a film from Australia made by a director who grew up in Brooklyn and moved to Sydney several years ago. The festival has had award-winning films that were shot in Brooklyn by directors from Canada and Italy and even a young animator born and raised in Brooklyn… New South Wales, Australia.

“With engaging stories, poignant scenes, resonating sensibilities… the hard journey from standoffish non-participant to committed festivalgoer, from the apathetic to the enthusiastic, is paved with good filmmaking. Not only good filmmaking but relevant films. And who will make these good films for the Art of Brooklyn Film Festival audience? Brooklyn filmmakers, of course.”

“The Brooklyn movie scene is certainly no small potato, with legendary filmmakers such as Spike Lee (who, though he moved from Brooklyn to the Upper East Side 15 years ago, still commutes to Fort Greene every day). But like many arts events in the borough, film festivals often hover over select neighborhoods and communities, giving filmgoers only the smallest taste of how diverse and varied Brooklyn truly is. The Art of Brooklyn Film Festival aims to change all that.” — Brooklyn Based
