The Art of Brooklyn Film Festival - June 4-12

The 6th Annual Art of Brooklyn Film Fest (June 4-12) has great screenings and events scheduled — all over the Borough.
AoBFF is the ONLY film fest exclusively devoted to the Brooklyn scene in all its diversity.

Wed June 8: The BK Premiere of the full theatrical version of Spike Lee’s Black Lives Matter doc 2 FISTS UP: WE GON’ BE ALRIGHT

Sat, June 4: “Best of the AoBFF” in Sunset Park FREE!
We’re partnering with the NYC Parks Dept (the first time they’ve ever worked with an indie film fest) to screen former AoBFF award winners, headlined by 80s-style grindhouse horror romp LAKE NOWHERE. Come on down for an old-school Brooklyn block party with food, music and free movies when the sun goes down!
Special set by Brooklyn’s DJ SugarfreeBK starts at 7PM ** And it’s all free.

Friday, June 10: “HOW TO: Microbudget Filmmaking in NYC” - Price: Pay what you can
This workshop seminar, led by the AoBFF’s Guest Festival Director for 2016, award-winning filmmaker Eric Trenkamp, discusses the fundamentals of talent, location and music releases for indie filmmakers in New York City. Habibah Love and Hassan Heyward of the NYC Mayor's Office of Film, Theatre & Broadcasting will join Eric to describe when and how to acquire permits from their office. We’ve made this a “pay what you can” event so as many indie filmmakers as possible can attend.

AoBFF also has a full slate of new films created in and catalyzed by the Brooklyn independent scene. Standouts for 2016 include World Premieres of the horror feature ‘Seclusion’ and sci-fi thriller ‘Diverge’. Brooklyn's own Mr. Kaves (Lordz of Brooklyn, Brooklyn Made Tattoo) is featured in the French drama ‘Star’ which will have its US Premiere at AoBFF.

Documentaries of note include ‘The F Word’ about 5th wave feminist performance art, and In Our Backyard’ which exposes the epidemic of sex trafficking in Brooklyn.The festival will also be screening blocks of short comedies, dramas, docs and animation and its famous ‘Film As Art’ block, which is a home for experimental art films that are often passed over by film festivals.

AoBFF will host panel discussions on important topics facing filmmakers: Women in Entertainment: ‘Power Players Changing the Parity Game’ produced with NY Women in Film and Television, ‘In the Mix: Latino Filmmakers at the Forefront’ produced with Prime Latino Media and ‘How To: Microbudget Filmmaking in NYC’ with guests from the NY Mayor’s Office of Film, Theater and Broadcasting.

Attendees can purchase an All-Access Festival Pass (every party, event and screening) for only $40 til May 27, $50 thereafter.
Pre-Sale tickets are $2 off online when customers use code AoBFF16
