The Art Of Brooklyn

Our Mission

The Art of Brooklyn Film Festival is the flagship indie film event of Brooklyn.
Founded in 2011, AoBFF is the ONLY international, independent festival in the world devoted to Brooklyn’s vibrant film and media scene. We accept films from all over, as long as they are connected to the borough in some way (e.g. cast/crew, production, content, theme, setting, etc.)
We are also the only indie film festival to build and program our own video-on-demand streaming platform: Brooklyn On Demand, where we broadcast festival favorites, original series and more, online and on a Roku channel with over 10,000 subscribers, alongside Netflix, Hulu and Amazon Prime.
AoBFF is a creative hub, platform and showcase for independent film and media makers in Brooklyn and around the world. We partner with film distributors and media organizations, host world-class talkbacks, and create innovative programming for networking and skill building. And we screen in state-of-the-art theaters for enthusiastic audiences across Brooklyn.
We believe that film festivals exist for filmmakers, not the other way around.

About The Art Of Brooklyn

(The Art of Brooklyn)

The Art of Brooklyn Film Festival (AoBFF) is the only international film festival that’s all about Brooklyn‐born, Brooklyn-based and Brooklyn-centric films and filmmakers. The AoBFF screens films from all over the world whose makers live, work in, or are inspired by Brooklyn’s independent film scene. We welcome submissions from everywhere, just tell us how you or your film are connected to Brooklyn.

What makes the Festival stand out from other opportunities available to filmmakers? *

Unlike other festivals that are just located in the borough, The AoBFF is the only independent international festival for, by and about Brooklyn indie film—a local scene with a global influence. For example, in addition to films from Brooklyn-based filmmakers, we have screened a documentary by an Italian filmmaker about a Hassidic Brooklyn rapper, a Turkish film inspired by Brooklyn’s diversity, a horror film by a Brooklyn-born director who lives in Australia and a Canadian feature film shot entirely in our borough. Every year we focus on a select group of filmmakers in one of the most important emerging settings for independent film in the world.

Since Brooklyn is home to so many artists we have created a special category for experimental films that defy genre classification: Film As Art. We designed Film As Art to showcase artist-made works on film and video that are rarely seen outside of gallery settings. Each year we present the Vanguard Award for outstanding achievement in this category, to support experimentation and encourage envelope pushing in independent film.

Our filmmakers have their work judged by industry professionals. The AoBFF judging panel includes the actors Annabella Sciorra and Eric Mabius and directors Elliot Lester (Blitz) and Demian Lichtenstein (3000 Miles to Graceland); noted film scholars like Annette Danto and Mary Engel; and prominent festival professionals like actor and curator at Michigan’s prestigious Waterfront Film Festival Christine Elise McCarthy (ER, 90210) and Terry Nelson, Festival Director for the Beacon Independent Film Festival.
