Movies Are Back (Two Ways) at the 12th Annual Art of Brooklyn Film Festival June 1-12
Now you can go to the movies… and the movies can come to you.
The 2022 Art of Brooklyn Film Festival (June 1-12) is showing over 70 new indie films in-person in venues across the Borough, and around the world... with streaming encore screenings, plus three virtual premieres.
Cofounder Anthony DeVito says,"Producing our 2020 festival online during lockdown was tough, but there were unexpected upsides. We connected with audiences all over the world and three of our feature premieres got distribution. For us, nothing beats watching films in a theater, but we didn't want to give to give up the accessibility of streaming. So this year we're doing both!" And, for the first time ever, AoBFF will screen virtual premieres of features from the UK, San Francisco and Taiwan complete with filmmaker Q&As just like our live events. "The way forward is to give audiences as many options to watch as possible. Now you can go to the movies and the movies can come to you, ' says DeVito.
