Opening night at the BK Film Festival 2023.

The Brooklyn Film Festival (BFF), New York’s longest running international, competitive film festival, announced its 27th edition titled Immersion, to run from May 31 through June 9.

BFF received 3,351 films, a festival record, from 103 countries and will program the selected films into 42, two-hour program blocks. The 2024 film lineup will include 150 film screenings, of which almost all are premieres, according to a news release. 

“Immersion is the theme of the 27th Brooklyn Film Festival. A theme that reveals the festival intention and the desire of our selected filmmakers to tell stories in a vertical fashion. Stories that dive way beyond the surface to force the audience to consider not only the obvious outcomes and meanings, but also the hidden and secret ones,” said the festival director Marco Ursino.

“In the extremely complex historical and political moment that we are experiencing, we need to understand the truth of things. BFF believes in the truthful spirit of indie filmmakers, and this year we offer the opportunity of a collective immersion, triggered by the film programs, the Q&As at the end of the screenings, the various networking parties, and the infinite chats on social media. We look forward to share with the filmmakers, the media, and the audience our true hopes and inner dreams," he said.

This year, BFF will be staged from May 31-June 9, in person at Windmill Studios in Greenpoint, with additional screenings being held on June 3-June 6, at the Wythe Hotel Cinema in Williamsburg. All films will also be available online via the festival website.

BFF's 20th Annual KidsFilmFest (KFF) will be staged online only for this year’s festival. All KFF films will be available online for almost the entire festival (June 1-Jun 9). The program is rated "G" and consists of numerous animated shorts, documentaries, and live-action films.

All details will be announced soon on the festival’s website.
