Movie buffs unite–the 11th annual Greenpoint Film Festival is making its way back to Brooklyn starting this Thursday, September 15!
Started in 2011, the Greenpoint Film Festival had to shift their screenings to a drive-in model during the pandemic, and this year they’ve locked in the venue to provide drive-in, bike-in, and walk-in screenings! From Thursday (9/15) through Sunday (9/18) 40+ films will be screened with each day being broken down into themes, which include:
- Unexpected connections
- Food & feelings
- Community comedies
- Nature vs. Nurture
- What it costs, what it gives
- The performer & the world
- Finding courage
- Music, fire & water
The featured films range from as short as 4 minutes, with Noah Rogers’ animation film Joe, to as long as 102 minutes, with Isabel Andersson’s documentary Lena.
This festival aims to give a voice to the voiceless in the filmmaking industry while also expanding the local film network in North Brooklyn.
