The 27th edition of the Brooklyn Film Festival (BFF) wrapped up last week and the film ATIKAMEKW SUNS by Chloé Leriche picked up the coveted Grand Chameleon and the Best Narrative Feature awards, while IMPOSSIBLE TOWN by Meg Griffiths and Scott Faris took home the award for Best Documentary Feature.

Winners were chosen by an external panel of judges, the festival Board of Directors and the audience, according to a news release. 

"All of the films selected to screen at this year’s BFF are winners," said Marco Ursino, BFF Director. "We had 3,351 films, a festival record, from 103 countries for our 27th edition. I think that being part of the 158 films selected (including KidsFilmFest program) to be presented at the festival, it’s already a big win. We are thrilled to once again show our audiences what the world of filmmaking has to offer. Thank you to all of the filmmakers for sharing their immersive films with us.”
