Greenpoint Film Festival Set to Return in August 2024 Submissions Open on November 1st

BROOKLYN, N.Y. - Oct. 23, 2023 - PRLog -- The Greenpoint Film Festival is thrilled to announce the return of its 13th annual edition, scheduled to take place from August 8 to 11, 2024. As a celebration of independent cinema and the vibrant neighborhood of Greenpoint in Brooklyn, this festival promises to captivate audiences with a diverse selection of films from all over the world, engaging panel discussions, filmmaker Q&As and intensive hands-on workshops.

Submissions for the 2024 Greenpoint Film Festival will open on November 1st, 2023 with the Earlybird submission period ending on January 11th, 2024. Submissions will be accepted in the following categories: feature and short narratives, feature and short documentaries, animations and XR Stories.

We are opening a new category this year titled XR Stories. XR or Extended Reality is an umbrella term that encompasses virtual reality (VR), augmented reality (AR), and mixed reality (MR). XR Stories are the combination of story and technology in immersive and interactive entertainment.

Previous editions of the Greenpoint Film Festival have been made possible by the generous support of sponsors like Broadway Stages, Walton Hauling, Universal Production Services, New York City Tourism Foundation, and many others. We are grateful for their continued commitment to our mission and would like to extend our appreciation not only to them but to the festival partners, collaborators, and the Greenpoint community for their continued support. The festival's mission is to bring art and film together by highlighting upcoming filmmakers as well as environmental issues and stories for film enthusiasts, artists, and the community alike to enjoy and appreciate.

Organizers of the 13th edition are enthused to deliver an indelible experience, promising to build a festival centered around a unique yearly theme aiming to push the boundaries of independent cinema while providing attendees with critically-acclaimed and riveting films.

The Festival is organized by filmmakers, for filmmakers. For more information, please visit the Greenpoint Film Festival website at or find details about submissions at
